repair for K5


Link Posted 03/06/2018 - 11:41
Hi guys, I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem with their K5, or other SLR...

I have a K5 and the lens interchange button on the body has popped off and is now lost. To change a lens I have to insert something to depress the release so I can change the lens. So at least the mechanism is still working.

Has anyone had theirs repaired or managed a diy home fix ?

Any idea who could do a repair and likely turnaround time ?

Failing that I might persuade myself to be in the market for a used K3 !

I think it was a common fault. Try a search on the US forum.

Half Man... Half Pentax ... Half Cucumber

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff

I had the same problem, luckily I found it and glued it back on with superglue and it's been on ever since (two years) Sorry I can't help unless you can find one somewhere and glue it on
