Display Data doesn't shuts down

Using my Pentax K10d & have noticed that after relatively short term use...perhaps 20 minutes or so of continual use, the settings data no longer appears in my viewfinder border, nor does it show on the display by the shutter. Its just blank.

I shut the camera down & turn it back on & the display returns, but the same thing happens again. Its a consistent problem...

I'm curious why this might be happening, & if you think any of my other functions might be affected by this...Finally, I'm curious where other Pentax owners send their equipment for repair...the Pentax repair centers in Chandler, AZ is quite backed up (I've been waiting for my 540 flash unit for almost 6 weeks now).

Thanks in advance...any suggestions or ideas much appreciated.

Will it come back on if you half press the shutter button?
Do you have a short setting for sleep mode?

No...a half press doesn't bring it back, & my sleep mode is as long as possible...& all other functions appear to be working, its just I can't see my settings...
