Am I doing something wrong...?

...or is my new K-7 not shifting iso in any other mode beside Green? I've tried everything, but to no avail. Even in a dark room, the iso stays at 100, while the shutter speed gets longer and the aperture goes to max. I've checked to make sure iso is in auto mode, with a range of 100-1600, with the auto shift mode set to normal. Really could use some help. Thanks.

Did you really try all modes?
Auto-ISO does not work in M, Sv, B and X.

Set the camera to Av and try again.

this took me a while to figure out.

on the info screen where the ISO is displayed (as opposed to the screen with auto iso range shown) press the ISO button.

in the bottom right corner of the LCD you see a green dot surrounded by white and the word AUTO in green

Press the green button and auto ISO is enabled
