Pentax K-X Flash No Longer Works

I have owned the Pentax K-X for a little over two years. Just recently, the pop-up flash has stopped working. I took it to an authorized repair shop who gave me a quote of $249, but the tech did say I could purchase an external automatic flash cheaper and bypass the repair. I need some help finding a flash, nothing too complicated as I like ease of use and quickness when taking pix.

Thanks so much.

The Pentax AF360 flash is what I use. Works very well. Easy to use too.
