Pentax Canada or Pentax USA

I have a K20D that has a couple of spots (I believe on the sensor). I have tired to clean it myselft with various tools , including the rocket blower, wet cleaning with VisibleDust UltraMXD-Vswab 1.0x Sensor Cleaning Swabs Green Series and swaps and finally the sticky pad of a Pentax cleaning kit. I have also brought it to the 'shop' for a 'professional cleaning' all to no avail.

It can of course be 'fixed' in pp but I don't want to have to touch evey shot I take, so I am inclined to send it back to Pentax and at least see if they can fix it and if it is cost effective given the decling price on the body.

I have read several posts on Pentax Canada may not be the best place to send it. I think I have read other Canadians have delt with Pentax USA directly.

What would be the suggestion ? Should I contact both and see ? I would deal directly with Pentax USA , if Pentax Canada I will go through McBains as they have said they will credit my cleaning charge to the repair (if it can indeed be repaired).
