Pentax K5 VERY low playback volume

So I got my Pentax K5 today and everything works fine except the playback volume for the videos is VERY low. It's there, but very low and yes, my volume is maxed out. It gets to the point where I have to put my ears by the two speaker holes to hear anything at all.

Any ideas on what's wrong?

The speaker on it is SMALL, play it back on a computer to hear it better.(Think the speaker might actually even be the Mic with the polarities swapped)

Mine is the same. I tested the video for the first time with my child speaking directly in front of the camera and the playback on my computer was nearly inaudible. Arghh!
