No replacement but it's back after just 7 days and in perfect working order (I hope - seems that way) !

The shop didn't know what the issue was as Pentax didn't say ... just that it was a simple fix.

Hi Kevin,

Nice! It's good to hear that it was something easy to fix, and that was a nice fast turnaround. Was there any evidence of resetting of your custom settings or such?

Scott

Thanks Scott, Harriet, Mole & AS !

The camera's settings were all reset and the firmware returned to 1.01.

Yep all covered under warranty. Only get one year in China though ..... oops
