Problems with D-BG4 grip for K-5/7?

Has anyone had any repair issues with their genuine Pentax D-BG4 grip for the K-5/7? Mine's shutter button just stopped working out of the blue and I have sent it off to CRIS.

The only time mine stopped working was when the switch was turned to off. Sometimes in the heat of the moment I forget about that, turn it 90 degrees and try to go for the shot but nothing happens until i switch it on.

This happened to me with the Pentax grip for my K10d. Really depressing until I realized what had happened.

The switch was tried many times, along with different batteries, combinations of which was on first, etc.

Mine works on and off, though I did purchase it at the same time as my k5 a few months after it came out and used it a lot. This with my k10 having the dreaded memory card error (even though that camera i have not dropped , k5 yes..) my confidence in pentax oem equipment has gone down a bit...
