K-1 Playback button / function has stopped working

K-1 Playback button / function stopped working

Suddenly my K-1 playback button / function has stopped working. It worked maybe 1 of 10 tries for an hour or so when I noticed today and now I think I can not playback anymore. It takes pictures fine. Last firmware 1.4 , I use san disk extreme pro cards. I have formatted cards, tried different cards, reset, different lenses. Nothing fixes it. Anything else I can try before sending it for repair? It has failed me just I need it the most traveling overseas.

today 3 days later my k-1 playback button is working normally again. The only difference I can say I have between the last weekend and now is that I was at 11,000 feet above sea level when it was not working and I am now at 600 feet above sea level when it is working today.. I am not saying this is the cause of this very strange behavior, just stating my observations.

I am pretty sure the only diffference is altitude and related temperature, humidity, ....

Very strange k-1 behavior

I'm having the same issue with mine. It started by not responding at times, and now it is not responding at all.
I would hate to send the camera to repair just for this. I would love if any other button could be re mapped to perform playback, but so far, no luck.
