Pentax K-70 stuck in Aperture Priority mode

After recently updating to v.1.11, the mode dial wont let me change to anything else but users 1,2, and 3, as well as bulb exposure. Whenever I turn the dial to a mode other than those, it switches to Aperture Priority mode, and only that mode. Any ideas?

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

A few quick questions:

1. Does your camera allow you to go into M mode?
2. What lens is mounted?

I'll admit, I do feel a little dumb for not seeing if it went away when I actually attached the lens. Thanks for the tip!

Yay! Recent Pentax dSLRs behave differently when a lens having a conductive base is not detected. I'm glad I asked the right questions.
