Changing power of on-board K20D Flash....

Hey guys. New to the Pentax world. On past cams you would just hold the flash (lightning bolt) button and be able to increase or decrease the power of the on-board flash. No I bought a used K20d, so I guess it's possible they changed what some of the buttons would do. But pressing that button on mine doesn't gove you the access to change flash power. Am I missing something? Thanks!

You can change the power by going to the FN menu and using the rear edial I believe.

Sorry, that was confusing on my part. I meant with other Canon or Nikon cams I had. Haven't found it on the K20D though. Thanks!

Thanks, I'll check that out. I think I might reset the camera too. I do believe some of the custom settings might be causing the problem. Thanks!
