Annoying problem with the K20D - diopter - HELP!!!

Hi Folks,

Well I may have bumped it a bit, nothing out of the ordinary but suddenly the viewfinder was all mushy and after fiddling with it for a while I realised what it was - the diopter adjustment on the viewfinder is out of whack.

When I focus it does sort of come into focus and there is a focusing confirmation beep/light/dot but the image in the viewfinder is blurry and when I slide the diopter adjustment there are no changes at all.

Any ideas what to do??

Any advice would be appreciated - we are going overseas in just over a week and the camera has to be working.

Sounds like time to make an appointment with the Pentax Doctor.
