X-5 Replacement LCD Screen

Hi guys,

I live in the states and a month after purchasing my brand new Pentax X-5, dropped it and broke the LCD screen!!!


I'm pretty good and self-repair but having a very hard time finding any information on the screen itself Ex: part # or where to purchase a replacement.


Putting out a big SOS here as I don't want to pay almost the price of the camera itself to have it repaired.

The US Pentax parts department is virtually nonexistent, but if you want, you can try shooting the support team an email via pentaximaging.com and see what they say.

The X-5 is now $226, so worst case that'll be the price.

Here is a similar thread in the Pentax Q forum. It lists phone # and who to call. Check it out. Did you break the cover glass( camera still shows image), or did you break the actual lcd monitor underneath?
Good luck

good luck with the Pentax parts dept. I have left at least 3 messages for Lynn over the past month or so and so far no response at all.
It's a good thing my lens release button isn't missing or something...oh wait, it is!
