K-x LCD not working after firmware 1.02 upgrade

After upgraded my K-x from 1.01 to 1.02, my LCD now not showing anything sometimes. Sometimes the LCD is ok, but most of the time it broke down. I still can take photos, but just that I cannot see the LCD.

I wonder if anyone faced this problem? How can I revert back to v1.01?

Just to point out the obvious, you tried the info button right?

Have you tried removing the batteries? Sometimes that will reset it.

My K-x monitor will go blank after a period of usage. After resting it for a period of time, then the monitor display comes back. Could it be overheating? Big IF..

Or maybe is it because of humidity as I like to bring my K-x for jungle/outdoor. Could be the sweat from the body that caused the problem? (I hang on my neck all the way)

Failed solutions:
- Service centre replaced my monitor with a new one but seems that isn't the monitor problem.
- I downgraded my firmware from 1.02 to 1.01 and the the problem still persists.

"Bring to service centre". Yes that sounds easy. The problem is I can't replicate this problem to them. I'm not even sure in what condition the monitor will not display suddenly! They might be lucky to have the monitor displaying all the way thru their checkings, thus "looks fine" to them.

What do you guys think?
