K-70 LCD stops working

I have a new K-70 and after 2 weeks the LCD/monitor will not work. As well as this the auto focus on the shutter release button is not working. It is under warranty, but any simple solution would be greatly appreciated.

I would return that ASAP and have them send you a new one. That's not normal or acceptable.

I would first check that the screen review is not disabled via the menu, and that focus is set to the shutter button and not back button. *

* I am only assuming the camera has those capabilities - I never owned that body.

K-70 LCD stops working

Thank you for your reply. I have contacted my warranty people in Melbourne, Australia and await their reply. I have been using Pentax cameras since the 1970s and this is the first real problem I have ever had. My K-x is almost worn out and only now works in Tv shutter priority which I can still use to shoot Rugby Union football which I do a lot of most week-ends.

Thanks Special K, but as the LCD will not work for Menu, I am unable to check any settings.

You may have accidentally turned off the LCD screen. Press the Info button twice and a menu should come up allowing you to select the leftmost option with the 4-way controller arrow keys. Then hit the Info button again to lock it in. If you do not get a pop up screen with the Info button, then something is wrong with the camera.
