thanks,

yes i have firmware 1.03, which i re-installed 2 days ago in order to test whether this was the problem.

But nothing changed.

What i will do as next steps:
- try to find a small screw in order to put at the missing screw place in the battery compartment.
- put some contact cleaner
- change battery selections in menu
- buy some other batteries in the market

Then if nothing changes, take it for repair in a Canon shop - i called them and said they would be happy to check it for me.
Then depending on cost, would need to start searching for a new camera!

Thanks

Thanks, so you mean other brands have such problems as well? I don't know many details since this is my first DSLR.

My main problem now is that in Cyprus were i live, we do not have a Pentax service shop - thus the camera needs to be sent abroad etc. But we have a canon repair shop...

Anyway i will try to solve the problem, otherwise in the next week i will start the search for a new camera! I have no idea what is going in the market, or what new models does Pentax have. I just did a search back then for a beginner's DSLR and purchased the K-X.

Just a question about something i noticed today, as you can see from the attachment (the photo is not from my camera) one of the small black screws is missing from my battery compartment - more specific the top left small black screw is missing. Would you think that this might cause the wrong battery indication?

To be honest I am thinking of going to a Canon, I am not sure if I will buy a Pentax... for sure NOT another k-X, very unhappy with it.
I just dont accept the fact that after just 4 years such an important feature is broken... Plus the fact that lately it is not showing correctly the battery indicator...

Thank you for all replies and help

- The motor does not make any sound
- when i change position of the button, i can see the small extension moving, but no change in software...
- unfortunately this period of time (having twins of 13 months old) we need to have AF.. Not just for taking photos of fast moving kids, but to be able to give the camera to someone else to grab us a photo. With MF, how can you give a DSLR to someone and tell him to focus, and especially the K-X that does not have focus indicator...

I will try the spray and revert!

Hello,

i have the camera for about 4,5 years, and now the autofocus is not working.

Is started slowly since for about a week the autofocus was coming and going. But now i dont have at all, i tried to clean whatever i could, tried with two lenses, tried wiithout a lens, but when i turn on the button of AF on the screen it still indicates MF.

So i suppose is something that i cannot solve. I even re-updated the 1.03 update, but with no result.

Would you have any suggestions?

Thanks
