Got through to Austalian Pentax service dept. this morning.

They seemed to have little concern and didn't know much about the internals of the ist-DL. I'm not sure I'd even want them to touch it after that phone call.

I went into the battery compartment with the back end of a pen to see if any terminals were even slightly loose. I didn't try to flex them, I was extreamely gentle. They are firm and tight.

Well now the camera works again.

I breathe a sigh of relief, but I only hope it doesn't happen again.

Thanks to all for your input.

Chromo.

That will sometimes happen with newer models, such as the K10. Every once in a while, you will hear about a K10 that has gone crackhead and the only fix is to leave the battery out over night. I don't see why it couldn't happen to a DL.

Ah! like a reset?. I will remember that if it happens again.

Thanks
