K5 Auto focus stopped.

Has anyone had a problem with autofocus not working. I tried 2 lenses and both won't focus unless in Auto (green button) or User. Is there a setting I'm missing?
Any help appreciated!

You're not an idiot, you are just suffering from the Hereafter syndrome - you know, when you get to the kitchen and say to yourself, "Now what the heck did I come here after?"
