Unfortunately, you can't order parts yourself, so to repair it, you would need to send it to a repair facility. This will be quite expensive, so it may actually make more financial sense to buy another (used) K-5.

I saw the following part listed on Amazon in case you are interested. I have also seen videos listed that deal with the SD slot repair/replacement.

Below is part listing I am referring to. : PhotoTrust Camera SD Memory Card Reader Slot Holder Replacement Metal Compatible with Pentax KX KR K5 K5IIs K3 K30 K7 Cameras : Camera & Photo?tag=pentaxforums-20&

Most likely it would be quite a task to repair it yourself, unless you are familiar with camera repair, so the options of either getting another K-5 or having yours repaired by a professional may be how it could possibly be dealt with.

I expect that if your camera needs that sort of work, it is beyond economical repair. The K5 was beset by so many problems out of the gate, many unrepairable, that I wouldn't be putting any money into one. The K5II or K3 are both excellent cameras that should be quite reasonably priced on the used market.
