K-30 light measuring problems

Hello and thanks very much for your time and answers
I tried as a test to take a picture of my room (enough light) with:M mode---F4---1/40---ISO 12800 and all i got was a dark photo (completely dark).When i lowered the speed to 1/5, i got a very underexposed picture.
Probably the problem doesn't have to do with exposure meter.

(i just hope pentax doesn't rip me off cuz i can't find the warranty :P )

Hello fellow photographers.
I'm a noob photographer and K-30 owner (very satisfied with her).
Recently, while shooting a concert, the shots became very dark.
After doing a reset to default settings the issue was still there.
When shooting in video mode everything is fine and the picture is normal. When shooting in every other mode, the pictures become dark as if the light sensor gives wrong information to the camera. (when i raise the iso and lower speed, i can achieve a normal result but not with normal settings). Lens and body are fine (no chrushing :) )

I don't have much experience with troubleshooting (this is my first DSLR) and i would like to ask for advice. Are ther known problems with light sensor at these cameras? Will reinstalling the firmware fix this or should i contact pentax?
Thanks in advance
