Pentax K-m LCD problem


Two days ago my km lcd stops working. Any time I power on the camera the lcd remains black, and if a lens is mounted on the camera and
The body was in autofocus mode the camera start focus automatically without any action from me, a bit like if I'm pressing the shutter button
halfway. I can change and choose diferent program modes and the viewfinder show the modifications made on theshutter speed or aperture correctly.

When power on the camera if press menu button lcd works and show me the current firmware version. Also I already downgrade and upgrade the firmware several times, playing with versions 1.10 and 1.11.

Here in the forum and in other web sources I can find very similar problems like mine not only with km but also with the sister machine kx, but in anyone are a conclusive end saying the cause for the problem and if it worth a repair.

I also try connect the machine to a tv set to try if I can reach the menu, but no luck ... The onlyboutput is the one related to the firmware ...

The machine have only 15000 shots and are in very good condition and I' in trouble to accept that is it end ...

Any ideas ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Merry Xmas
