K-x screen not working!! help please

so ive been using a film pentax for ages and only just got the K-x 1month ago after saving and wishing for aaaages

but i lent my baby to my mum for a family event (after alot of begging and pleading and promising she would look after it)..
she flew over with the camera has hand luggage (not sure if the cabin pressure would affect it??)

she said that it has'nt been banged or had any shock at all and no water has got to it, but she only turned on the camera when she got to the church 1 day after the flight, the LCD screen has been completely black from then on, every time it has been turned on

i have tried all the butttons inc. the live view, changing memory cards and batteries.
the info bar in the view finder is still working so i can use the camera but not as well.
when i connect the camera to the computer, all the pictures are veiwable that have been taken without use of the screen.


does anyone know why this has happened, how i can fix it ??
or should i keep trying to get through to pentax help line?

Check the display time/review settings. It may be turned to Off.

Turn on the camera and then press the info button a few times. I think on the third press, this turns off the display till you cycle through again.

I'm having the same problem(googling it is how I found the forums). My camera is still under warranty(for the next 3wks) but CS says I need to pay shipping to and from and repair isn't garaunteed if they find evidence of falling. I don't recall any major drops but I leary of paying to ship it, shipping company tossing it around, then they say it was dropped and not repairing it.

Sorry, I don't think my info will help. Even with display off, you still should see a picture on display when shot or LV.

Rule #1:

Never lend your camera to anyone.
