K-7 dust in LCD Screen??

hi, guys,

i just found a LOT of visible dust under my LCD screen cover, is there a good way to get it out? I just bought the camera for less than a month, and the camera has been very well taken care of... I assume it's not a common problem, am i right?

Actually I bought 2 K-7's, one was already returned because of the in-LCD dust problem, I didn't imagine that the one i kept suffers from the same problem now.

shall I send the camera to pentax service?(I can return it, but I am not inclined to doing that because it already had around 1400 shutter counts)

thanks a lot!

Dust under the LCD screen cover? don't understand, can you elaborate? I thought the common problem is in the viewfinder....

Well, I had one K10 looking like this, but it was after a return trip to service where they opened it up, so I guess some grit went it at the time...

Maybe your dealer gave you two K7 coming back from service...

Where is the Manufacture date located? I just recieved a K7 kit, and I would like to know the manufacture date before I power it up. Or do I have to power and read it via software

Thanks
Mike
