ISO 100 not displaying on K-7

Hi all, long time no post. My K-7 has recently encountered a pretty major problem where the ISO 100 is no longer available as an option, only ISO 200 and higher is displayed. It started about a week ago on the 1.03 firmware after having no issues for 1.5 years. I upgraded to the 1.11 firmware and no dice, though I wasn't really expecting that to help. I've toyed around in the menus a bit and there's really nothing I can find. Does anyone have any ideas?

Have you enabled the expanded iso range?

I just tried enabling and disabling expanded sensitivity (#3 on custom?). No luck.

That's exactly how my Kx works. Probably the same for the K7. That should fix your problem.

More definitely than probably. After enabling the shadow/highlight correction on my K7, ISO 100 is no longer an option. I haven't decided whether to keep it this way yet. Anyone with strong feelings one way or another?

Right- you'll want to disable the expanded dynamic range in the status screen and you should be golden!

Thank you, thank you all! I have no idea how that became enabled but you all know how these things go. I never use the status screen so I completely forgot about that.

I remember when I first got my Kx (about a year ago) I did a side by side of a photo with highlight correction on and off. I cannot find the photos but from what I remember I do not think there was enough of a difference to sacrifice the 100 ISO. But just to make sure I think I am going to do the test again, since it's been so long.
