k100d together with af360FZG suddenly fails.

Hello folks, I'm rather new to this forum thou I've fished some help from here earlier.

Anyway, I've had my k100d a couple of years now, some year ago I bought the af360FZG flash as a nice addition of lightning. It's a great flash and does all the tricks I want from it.

And now, suddenly, my camera doesn't allow me to use i properly. If I have the P-TTL setting on, as soon as I even touch the camera trigger, it switches to TTL and doesn't flash at all. And it doesn't matter if I click to change the mode, just jumps to SB or back to TTL. (and SB doesn't give any beam)

It have been working flawlessly until now.. And yesterday I gave the flash a try on a friends k100d just to see it wasn't the flash.. It worked properly on his camera.

I've switched between different lenses, different camera setting etc.. Nothing works.

Only way to get it to flash, is to (before I turn the camera on) force it in to A-mode, and then it doesn't allow me to change no settings like shutter-sync :/

So I wonder, anyone been through something similar? Cuz from what I can tell... either I'm missing something very simple... or I might need to get a new Pentax
(good chance to get a K-X thou ^^ but... not the right time)

Thanx alot! And sorry for the novel, just wanted to be clear ^^
