K5 top display problem

Has anyone else experienced a problem with the K5 top display? Some of it's segments don't appear as they should. Light finger preassure helps, but then they disappear again..

You are the first one that I have heard of. Looks like a trip to a service center is needed.
My Fluke 87 multimeter has acted like that couple times in the past, it was caused by high resistance in the display panel contacts. It was easy enough to fix by cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser.

So the display has been replaced in the authorised service centre, under warranty.

Same here

Well, I have the same problem. When shooting outdoors and there is like 10 degrees or less, some of those block simply disappear, but pushing on the thumb grip below solves the problem in almost every temperature, so it seems to be caused by the signal-transfer rubber underneath the lcd. My K-5 is no more under warranty but I would really love to have this fixed. Any idea how much should this cost?
