Pentax K-x Firmware 1.3

20 Sep 2015 10:42AM
I have had a Pentax K-x camera for at least 6 years and it has given me an immense amount of pleasure from the photographs I have taken. One day I noticed that the IR remote had stopped working and I thought it was the cheap remote had stopped functioning, so bought a replacement. After replacement I still had no joy, so I emailed Ricoh for guidance, and their technicians decided it needed a repair.At the time of noticing the fault I decided that as I did not use that function very often, I would ignore it. Recently however, it occurred to me that it went defective after I had updated the firmware to 1.2. I decided to return the software to 1.1 and see if that cured the fault. During my research I found a reference to Firmware 1.3, but there was no download at the UK site. After more research I found it on the Japan website, which was in English by the way, so easy to navigate and here is the link. Now my camera is functioning fine with the wireless remote I bought years ago and also via the remote from my Sony Blu Ray player. I thought I would just spread the word.

I don't have Pentax but I am sure many will find this most helpful
