Flash on K20D won't pop up, help

I just start fiddeling with my new/used K20D but cant get it to pop up the flash.
In green mode I get the signal in viewfinder that flash is needed but it will not pop up.
Any sugestion would be appreciated.
Never had this problem with the K200D I had before.
Hope I didn't buy a piece of junk cam

Do you expect the flash to pop up automatically? I don't think any of the high end Pentax DSLRs (K10D, K20D, K7, K5) does. I personally like it that way.

There is a small button near the flash to pop it up. It's all mechanical.
