k-s2 won't take photos when the screen is fully folded out & reversed

Hi! Since some time I own a K-s2. When i open up the screen completely (let's see in selfie mode, though it's for other purposes), it won't take pictures anymore. It will still take pictures when i almost completely fold it to open, but only when i open itsay 80% and not when i open it 100 %. This can't have been the idea Does anyone know how I can take photo's when the screen is reversed 100%?

Just tried it with my K-S2, You have to use the "WIFI" button, which becomes the selfie button when fully open.

I just learned something too!

The lens is reversed and put it back and press the live view, then you can take still photo.
If the lens is in selfie mode, the regular still shutter is off, use button that is lighted green.

I do believe there's a menu option to turn the selfie mode behavior off, but otherwise yes, you have to press the wi-fi button instead of the shutter button.

What Adam said. When the screen is facing forward like in your photo the shutter release is moved to the Wi-Fi button

The shutter will not fire in AF mode unless focus confirmation/lock is achieved. If you are holding the camera too close for the lens to focus it will not release the shutter either.
