I don't usually use flash but my wife wanted some pics of the christmas decorations and I heard a POP and the flash died,I have a sn 221xxxx and i'm really bummed It also took out some of my mode functions when set on AF.s something must have gotten a surge.I guess i'll wait till jan 2 untill I can talk to pentax service. I hope it will be fixed or replaced soon because I was really enjoying getting back into photography after a long hiatus.I just won a new lens on ebay too! I guess i'll have to break out the trusty k1000
I didn't wait until Jan 2 for Pentax Imaging to reopen. After reading the threads on speaking with the poor souls in Colorado who had to work during the holidays, I sent it in. My hope was that it would be one of the first to be attended to when they return from break.

My big concern, one that I'll call on the 2nd to ask about, is if they have the replacement part(s) and if not will they replace the camera or make me wait until they get parts.
