K-5 rear display stopped working

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately the display still isn't working. When I hook the camera up to the TV, I can see everything that should be on the camera's display, but unfortunately lugging around a TV kinda defeats the purpose of such a nice small DSLR body. LOL

I already sent my K-5 away for repairs 3 times for a total of 11 weeks during the 2 year warranty period, and I'm now about 5 months past the warranty period and am dreading the thought of having to send it in again. I can't afford another camera body or a hefty repair bill, so I might have to try and attempt a DYI repair.

K-5 rear display stopped working

The rear display quit working today while using my K-5. I can't see menus or info, can't review photos, can't use LV, etc. I have tried removing the battery, changed batteries, changed lenses, etc..but I can't get the display to work. I really don't want to jump to the conclusion that the display has died, so I have been searching to see if anyone else has had similar issues. Has anyone else had an issue like this? Is there a quick and easy fix or any suggestions that anyone might have?

Thanks.

I had one of these and sold it a few months ago so that I could get a Sigma 150-500. While I like the Sigma, I really regret that I had to sell my A* 300/4. This lens is easily light enough to carry around during reasonable hikes, and I got quite a few really good shots with that lens using it handheld with the focus trap method. I wish I could afford to buy it.

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 50mm f2.8 macro

Asking Price
$250 (firm) plus shipping

Item Location
Edmonton (Canada)

Item Description
Pentax FA 50/2.8 macro lens in good condition. The body shows some light scratches from use, and there are some letters etched into the mount from the previous owner. The glass is in very good shape with no haze, fungus or scratches. There may be a few tiny specs of dust inside, but that wouldn't affect picture quality at all.

I bought this lens about a year and a half ago but have never really used it very much. I haven't had time to get into macro photography, and most of what I use my camera for generally requires a zoom or a long telephoto lens. I need to downsize my lens collection and this lens doesn't get used enough to justify me keeping it.

Overall, I feel this lens is in pretty good shape. The lens includes front and rear caps. Please check the pictures and feel free to ask questions. I can send you pictures that I have taken with this lens on request.

If you are interested in trading, I might be persuaded to trade for a Sigma 10-20mm lens or something similar.

If you are unfamiliar with how good this lens is, please read the reviews here.

I will only ship this lens within Canada and the US, and I will provide quotes for actual shipping charges on request.

Thanks for the positive comments. I found it worked quite nicely with the SR and focus trap of my K-5, and I got quite a few decent shots with it. I just haven't been using it much lately since I got a Sigma 150-500. I found the focus ring a bit stiff compared to the A*300/4 lens that I had, but I've never tried another one of these lenses and therefore don't know if that is just a characteristic of these lenses. It didn't take me long to get used to the focusing, and I ended up quite liking it.

Yes, auto focus, aperture, etc. should all work fine on the newer Pentax DSLR cameras. I have tried them all out on my K-5.
