The PZ switch on FA lenses are prone to failure, but if it's not broken, maybe you can just stick it back? Any pic?

just sent it out to Pentax Service Department in AZ, hopefully it's fixable.
the cover was broken before, it seems to me, and it doesn't seal tight, the attached components cut or has damaged the power circuit, i think.

That is bad...
If it is just the thingy that fell off, it simply needs a new one.
I had one replaced for free buy Pentax servicing in Holland (but they don't exist anymore) although they said the thingy had no use, except for the PZ1-P or something. Later on I lost tat thingy again and just taped it over and all works well.
You can simply click it on the lens.
