Hi,

after having been very happy with my Pentax Optio S4 for 9 months now, the weirdest thing happened:
The camera seems to have imploded / exploded or something.
What happened was that the camera lay on the table, switched off. Out of the blue, a little bang was audible, accompanied by a little sparkle in the air. After that, I have not been able to switch the camera on again. Has something like this happened to anyone before?
I just hope that Pentax will repair / exchange the camera, because from what I've read in thios forum, they don't seem to be very cooperative.

So long

How bizarre! If you have the normal 12 month Pentax warranty they should repair or replace it.

Now that my camera has been at Pentax for over 2 months now, I am getting a little annoyed...

Pentax told me they had "Problems with the delivery of replacement parts"

I don't think there's much to repair, since the flash that came from inside the camera looked pretty big...
