[Guide] K-01 disassembly/LCD Screen replacement.

A while back I smashed the LCD screen on my K-01 (Well actually, American Airlines did, but anywho).

I found an LCD screen but couldn't figure out how to get the dang camera apart. Apparently Pentax hired some Chinese puzzle box designers to do the engineering on it :D

Anywho, after giving up on finding instructions anyhow I figured "Heck, it can't get any more broken" and just took it apart. I figured I'd write it up so that other people don't have to go through the trouble I did, so here it is:

Did you ever have any luck? I'm trying to replace my screen and have gotten the bottom off, from what I can tell the top panel comes off next but I haven't figured out how to get it off yet.

DA 20-40mm Ltd. By The Numbers?

Most of mine were at either 18mm or 50ish APS-C. Until I fell in love with my $5 28mm lens and got a DA70. Now they're all at 28mm or 70mm. I would still use the heck out of this lens if I had it, assuming it preforms anything like the other limiteds.

The camera forum with the drama of a middle school!

I kid, this is an awesome forum, but sometimes people get way to obsessed about being right on the internet (I've never done that, oh no....)

Trying to correct everyone that's wrong on the internet is an impossible battle. Could we go back to whining about FF now?

Too bad, 15-45 f/2.8 would have been really interesting as the limited zoom, assuming it would have been really small. It fits the range shown on the roadmap and everything.

On a completely unrelated subject, I finally saw a Q in the flesh; some Japanese tourists had one in my friends coffee shop. Seriously tiny, and felt really well built, it makes sense to me now. Anyone who's hatin' on it needs to actually hold one first.

Transplanting DA lens mount to DA L?

Transplant was successful, quite easy from the DA to the DA L however I wouldn't recommend trying to stick the DA L mount on a DA lens, I had to make a custom tiny metal piece to get the contacts to line up since they both ground on different pins internally.

In addition to the mount, you also need to change the internal aperture ring, the DA L ring fits fine in the DA mount, however the DA ring won't fit in the DA L mount. (once again only a problem if you try and stick the DA L mount on a DA lens.)

I took the quick shift clutch with also, it doesn't quite seem to work right though, it seems to get stuck or have a higher resistance then it should. I might take it out so I'm not tempted to use it, not sure whats happening there because they both seem to have identical gearing with the exception of the QS clutch.

Anyhow, I have a DA L lens with a metal mount and somewhat functioning Quick Shift.

I'd disclose it obviously, and as it would be a local sale the buyer would be able to see for themselves first.

Due to the complexities of the mount I'm not entirely sure that any old F zoom mount will fit straight onto the lens and have everything line up right.

Also, since it will be a local sale and there isn't really that much Pentax here (Basically me and a friend of mine and some random other guy who keeps buying up all the good old lenses on cragislist, darn you random stranger) selling the kit lens with the camera is pretty necessary.

Eh, I figured the mount would be closer between a DA L and DA version of the same lens. Also, I'm not gonna toss the V1 lens, I plan to stick the plastic mount on it and sell it with my K10D.

I have 2 18-55mm DA lenses, a version 1 and an L, and was wondering if anyone has ever transplanted the lens mount from one to another?

The DA L is in a lot better shape than the version 1 and in my short testing performs much better optically, but I change lenses a lot and wouldn't mind having the metal mount, if it's a simple switch.

Installed 1.04 on my K-01, nothing seems different. As far as I can tell it's just as Adam says, new flash and lens support.

Alrighty thanks, looks like I'll sell my version 1 DA and keep the DA L then. Although I can be kinda rough on lenses I can get another DA L and still come out ahead of the price of a DA II.
