K-7 & Battery Grip

I have the Pentax battery grip and just noticed that the buttons don't work on it. Is there a setting in the K-7 to get them to work?
I can't take a picture or anything with it. The battery works fine.

Thanks
Jack

What for firmware is on your K-7?
Load the current firmware,the early one had problems with the grip sometimes.
And the next step is,remove the grip and attach him new.look that he is in correct position.
you can fix the bg in wrong position too!
Best regards,Andy

Loosen up the wheel and wiggle the grip, re tighten. That may help.
And like was mentioned, make sure the grip on/off switch is on.

Thanks Guys!!! I didn't know the Firmware had a fix for the grip. I always hate firmware updates since they usually screw up other stuff went they fix a few things.
