Pentax K5 last parameter when turning on

I just got a K5 second handed, im using manual mode but when I turn my camera on it allways go to some values like ISO 80 speed 1/15 and aperture 5. something. I would like to know how to set it so that when I turn my camera on remembers my last parameters that I used.

Is like starting from zero each time I turn it on. I would like to continue with my last parameter and do adjustments only.

Hope you could help me

You can get the camera to remember the ISO by checking the "sensitivity" checkbox in the memory menu. Also, USER modes can be programmed to remember specific exposure settings. I don't believe the K-5 will remember the last-used shutter speed or aperture, however (note that some cameras from other brands do behave differently and remember your settings).

I think it does it on the Memory option

Thanks for your answer Adam
