K-X Live View Shooting Mode

I just acquired a K-X. It seems as though I can only get photos when using LV in the Auto Picture shooting mode. The camera will not take photos in any other mode in either AF or MF. Is this normal or am I doing something incorrectly?

Do you have a different drive mode selected perhaps, such as self timer?

Drive mode is single frame.

I was going to suggest possibly in the focus-priority setting but I believe that only applies to AF mode. Since you're having the same issue in MF mode it might not be it. Have you tried resetting the camera to default settings?

I took your advice and reset to default. Seems to have cured the issue. Thank you.
