K-01 dial (shutter, aper. zoom) stopped working

K-01 e-dial stopped working

While zooming in with the dial (shutter speed & aperture) it stopped
It seems normal from outside but do not respond anymore


I send normal service here in Turkey. He opened inside and shows me , Dial plastic part broken. He said "no K-01 part here in Turkey. If you can bring parts i can put in it." Which is newer imported. I bought with friend B&H America 3 or 4 years ago. I write outside Pentax Ricoh but they dont help me.

What can i do?

When you say 'zooming in,' do you mean when you're looking at pictures in playback mode?

Maybe you can go on ebay and buy a cheap, broken K-01, then take its e-dial. But are you sure it is broken to pieces, not just dirty or disconnected? Make sure there is no dust, particles in there, that the dial is glued/connected.
Pentax no longer sells parts directly to people, but if you go to official dealer, they should be able to order one. But it might be relatively expensive

And another thread, but this one is about the mode dial: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/138-pentax-k-01/215611-k-01-mode-dial-problem.html

I would try contacting Pro Camera Repair in San Diego (http://www.procamerarepair.com/), maybe they can provide the parts to you. I bet it would be cheaper than buying a non-functional K-01 on eBay. In fact, I've looked for non-functional units for sale and never seen any.
