Got my KP back from repair

Got my KP back and it's in record time for any Pentax or Nikon i have ever had to send in.

Repair order "LC03 changed" . I don't have a KP schematic but i am more than a little curious what and where that part is in the camera.
I hoard knowledge.

There is no longer any overlayed noise in the images and the rest looks the same. I'm pleased and to know there is a repair shop in Canada, however Pentax needs to update it's website to keep people in the loop.

Adendum: Apparently LC03 is a power connector which makes sense but silly none the less. However not really surprised by it these days.

Decided to keep the KP for a while as a backup since my other rentals time has run out.

Pentax, now would be a good time to show that K-3 mark iii.

My guess is it's better in Canada because Sun Photo hired 2 of the 6 Pentax repair techs when they took over the contract for warranty repairs. They actually have a couple of guys familiar with everything Pentax. I still miss chatting up the lady Pentax employed as a receptionist at the front desk, but you can't have everything.
