No Manual Option

Dear all,

Just today my K-x has stopped displaying the Manual option when choosing on the eDial. I turn it to M and it shows as the No Flash option!! Working fine the previous night then this.... So I really have the No Flash Option twice

Has anyone else had this? Is there a way to do a hard reset apart from the one in the menu?

Please help as not having the Manual mode is driving me insane!!!

I have no idea whether these might work or not, but they could be worth a try:
1) Maybe removing the battery, for a minute or so, might re-set it.
2) Another option might be to try re-installing the firmware.

Do the other modes work properly? AV shows AV, TV shows TV?

Hi kcobain1992, Yes all the the other modes work correctly.........

I have just been fiddling with the eDial and when moved really slowly the Manual mode does show on the display so..... It looks like the 'bits' under the dial that engage the dial and keep it in place when a mode is chosen, looks to have slightly moved for the M one!!!

Looks like a small trip to my Photography shop is in order to line up the contacts.

Thanks for all the replies chaps
