Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
Have had my istD for just over 12 months ...it has suddenly developed a problem in that when switching the mode dial to the arrow (between ISO and White Balance [WB] the recorded pixel display doesn't activate. Iinstead it continues to select White Balance settings. I can't access the recorded pixel settings at all...... maybe a mechanical problem with the mode dial but it actually selects all other options correctly and it does click into place at the arrow .... but doesn't function. Any one else seen this problem ??? Hoping that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to rectify.

I'm not sure what could cause this, in fact I don't even own the D but..... Approcahing this from a Network Analyst's poiunt of view, it's either hardware or software. The fact that all other modes are OK would indicate that the hardware may be ok. Assuming that it's a software glitch have you tried installing the latest firmware ? It may be worth a try if your problem is a result of some corruption your exisiting fw. It'll cost you nothing to try it anyway.
