Wow, XS is really tiny. Are you in green mode by any chance? Try changing the camera to P mode and see if that unlocks the setting. Or, you can try changing it from the control panel (info button).

Just tested this on my K-S1 and I can't reproduce what you're seeing. Auto or green mode has no effect. Neither does being in raw or raw+ mode, dng or pef. Whether it's in the menu or from the info button, I can always select and change the jpeg recorded pixels value.

Have you tried resetting to defaults? Tools menu, page 3, reset.

The only place I could think of where you'd see XS and not be able to change it is on the review page from a photo you've already taken in with XS selected. There, it's just showing information about the camera settings in place at the time the photo was taken.

If its like the k-s2 in menu: camera 1, image capture settings you have xs to large. In this menu are all but xs greyed out?
