K7 had weird issues.

Over the weekend I was shooting using the K7 with the Metz48 attached.
After a break, I picked up the camera and shot.... no flash went off. I looked at it and realised that i had switched off the flash (no big deal). As I looked at the k7 though the LCD was flickering a lot and was sort of semi translucent. It had a faint image of some menu screen showing through the info screen. If i switched to Play mode, the faint menu disappeared and the displayed image flickered a lot.

Switched it off and then on, same thing.

Switched it off for 10mins and everything came back to normal. It hasn't done it again.

Should I worry about it? I don't think it was a big deal but curious to see anyone else has had a similar thing happen.

Lol there's a poltergeist in your K-7.
