yep... sucks that this issues happen sometimes. i wonder if a good technician who knows DSLR electronics could fix it... my camera no longer has warranty and there is no Pentax center in my town, the closest one is too far away...

The repair sheet didn't specify what exactly they found wrong. However, there are references on the web about wire or solder joint breakage between the lens' data ball socket contact and the attendant circuit under the lens mounting ring on the camera body. It does not appear to be a model related issue, reports of similar problems on cameras other than the Kx have been reported. My son's Kx has about 20K shutter activations.
