If it is white-coloured, yes. As far as I can tell it was more in Europe that they already tested the green solenoids in the flash with the K-m
k-x etc. but not USA.

You can install the green solenoid into the flash-circuit of your k-m/2000.
Good point with the green sol

Shucks my solenoid started working again on my K30 (K50 firmware) and AV mode does not stop down a non "A" lens. I guess I'll have to use the green button again. It still seems to be an intermittent problem and that for me is a worst case, I never know what to expect from my K30. It was a good excuse for getting my new KP but letting the K30 rest while playing with the kp seems to enable the solenoid to start working again. For a while anyway. Maybe on a rainy or snowy day I will open my KM and K30 and swap solenoids.
