K100d issues

Hi everybody. I've had a k100d for about 3 years and it got destroyed by a 4 year old and some concrete I bought a new one on ebay that said it had been barely used and it's arrived, and I'm inclined to believe them, it's spotless, in the original packaging. However, when I turn it on, there's a very quick clunkclunk which definitely didn't happen with my old one. I can feel something move when I turn it on.

also, it seems slightly predisposed to make images have a quite severe blue tint. Have I got a dodgy one?

ah, managed to fix the blue issues, it was just a setting that needed changing. The noise is worrying me though.

Check and see if it is set to run dust removal on start-up. My K100DS does make a "clunk clunk" when I run the dust removal.

I thought the K100d didn't have dust removal or am I missing something

I would guess his replacement was the 'Super' version which added dust removal.
