Problem with AF360FGZ on K20D

Hello everyone, I have a problem that just came up with my AF360FGZ Pentax flash on my K20D. I used this flash on my K20D before with no problems but for some reason I can't get the flash to go into A. Zoom mode, I've reread the manual for the flash and reset everything but the flash stays in the M.Zoom mode while in P-TTL. It was working fine before in P-TTL and A.Zoom but then I tried it out as a wireless slave unit and it worked fine in this mode but since then I have not been able to get the flash to go back to A.Zoom. Just for info, I'm using the kit lens with the K20D and flash. Any help or ideas? Thanks

OK guys, I figured it out and found the problem. I use the Sto-fen defuser on my flash and for some reason I had the Wide angle panel down and the flash won't go into A.Zoom with the panel down. So rised it up and now able to get in the A.Zoom mode. So no need to reply. Thanks

If you are using a diffuser you may not want to let the flash auto zoom. you may want it to be on its widest setting to help get max diffusion
