K7 Firmware update

Hi All.
Since updating my K7 firmware to 1.13 none of my lenses work.They all worked before the update.
I get Debug mode and when I tether to my PC I get PC debug mode.
Any ideas on what I need to do to fix this, I now have a useless camera.

What do you mean your lenses don't work? What lenses are you using?

Certain updates may reset your settings, so if you're using manual lenses you'll have to properly set the aperture ring custom function.

I'm using Sigma digital lenses, no analog.
The back screen view(after mounting a sigma lens) shows 100iso, the F_ _ _ flashes and no changes can be made to any of the settings.
None of the boxes on the screen are high-lighted.
No reaction from shutter button when pressed.
Debug mode appears.
All settings available(those that don't need to have lens mounted) can be altered when no lens is mounted OK.

I have a K-7 with firmware 1.3 and I have had zero problem. But I do not have Sigma lenses.

*Did you have any problem during the firmware installation?


*May I suggest that you reset your camera settings. Take out the battery. Charge it fully. Once fully charged, wait 24 h or 36 h. Then replace the battery, and set again your basic settings.

It might (or not) work.


*Check that "Using Aperture Ring" is ON.



Hope that the comments may help.

Never had any issue with my Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX on my K-7.
It's been a flawless camera since I bought it in October 2009

Good news is that it still turns on, so you can try again.
Fully charge the battery. Format the card and download the firmware again. Maybe the file was corrupted...

Run the firmware update again.
