LCD Panel Issue


I got my K-5 replaced due to stain sensor issue. Now in this new camera top LCD panel is not working properly. Digits are not getting displayed entirely.

Did any one experience such issue? Please let me know how can I fix this.

Thank you!!

I Hate to suggest being without the camera again, and I know it might leave a sour taste in your mouth... but... I'd get it repaired again.

Missing components of digits on the top-LCD, given its character driven (well - on K20D's - I assume on K5's as well...), means a loose/dodgy connector.

It might 'come good' with a bit of a shake.. but it'll just occur again at a later point... Best to get it fixed properly...

Quality control!!!! I had the sensor stain- they replaced with a new camera that had a loose connection on the back screen. Sent it back and they repaired it. Send it back.

Thank you so much for suggestion!!
Actually this started happening after I tried star trail shoot but It was not that much cold outside. I will send back with the hope that new / repaired camera will not have any issues. Its very disappointing after investing my saving in such product which is creating issue frequently. Thank you again for your help.
