While trying to make setting changes in my kx it keep switching back to shoot screen by itself, i get about 2-10 sec. before it switches back. I'm a new pentax user so i maybe missing somthing. Any ideas. (camera purchased new yesterday fully charged batteries)

Is It

Is it Switching back by itself or are you accidentally pushing the ok button (does the Kx Have an OK button?)? In other words, can you just enter the menu, let the camera sit, and it'll just go back to the ready mode? I ask because I'm a bit fumble thumbed sometimes and this happens to me (on all my cameras).

you might also be touching the shutter button, even resting your finger on it it will switch back to shooting...

It will switch back on its own in about 60 seconds. If you touch the shutter or the AF button then it switches back, and touching the Menu button will switch back most of the time.

Thanks everybody, I solved the problem.

I upgraded the firmware to 1.01 and the problem went away.
