Lost my beep

All of a sudden, my K-x is unable to come up with the "beep" when it achieves focus. It focuses OK, I get the confirmation light in the viewfinder and the shots are in focus, it just doesn't beep. Also doesn't beep during the countdown for a self-timed shot, or any of the other accomplishments it's supposed to beep for. I checked the menu to make sure I hadn't inadvertently changed a setting, changed the batteries, tried a different lens - nothing. It was working yesterday but not today. Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious - ? Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions?

Yes it is. There are actually five functions in that one setting that the beep can be set for. I even tried unchecking, then re-checking, those choices. Still no beep.

Try recording video. If you get no sound during playback, the speaker is broken.

Ask someone else if they're hearing a beep. If you've checked everything and can't find a reason why it shouldn't be beeping...it might not be the camera. It might be you.

DragonLord - Thanks for your suggestion. Sure enough, no audio on the video. Now I have to decide how much I care about this -- I still have the green hexagon in the VF, and I don't think the beep matters that much to me for the other functions.

Thanks for your help.

For what it's worth, the in-focus beep was the first thing I deactivated when I got my K-x.

..."little bo sheep has lost her beep"...

Agree with kcobain1992 - first thing I do is deactivate the beeping noise!
