Odd problem

I turned my K-5 on earlier. It normally makes the little start-up click of the aperture arm cycling, but it didn't do that this time. I half-pressed the shutter button and released, and the rear LCD was all streaky, barely showing all the shooting settings.

I powered off the camera and back on again and all was fine.

Freak incident or a sign of something bigger to come?

Keep an eye on it; if it happens again, you have reason to be concerned.
