The LCD screen on my DS intermittently came up blank when I tried to use it on a trip in August. The screen was bright but no information, no images. the camera did however take pictures. I returned it under warranty and when it came back it seemed to work. Pentax gave no information on what they did to the camera, if anything.

Last week on another trip, same problem. Now that I am home it seems to work again. I could, and probably will, send it back for warranty repair again. However if it works when it gets there I doubt they will do anything to fix it.

Has anything like this happened to anyone else?

What lense(s) are you using when this problem occurs?
I know there is a Sigma lense that causes the screen to not work...

This is happening with the kit lens and a Tamron 28-200 that I use most. I do not own a sigma lens. Any other ideas?

hmm, very strange indeed.

Do the menu functions still work while it's blank?

ok I would go to the store where you bought it, and explain and show them the problem.

If it's still under warranty they might be able to contact Pentax directly to provide you with a new camera.
