Kx problem follow up
Mar 10, 2010

Well I can't believe it my Kx is working perfectly today at both 1/60 and where it was worst 1/125 yesterday when returned from service.

I'm beginning to wonder if what isteve said is right maybe the batteries are being jolted by the mirror and losing contact hence not holding SR in place?
Could be right and maybe because it is cold this morning contact is being made.
I will slightly bend up the contacts and see how it goes.

Anyway at the moment I am very happy and have passed this info onto Pentax Australia who have been very helpful CRK.

Just to proove its currently OK here's 3 SR off/on shots cropped from the following
I'm touching wood!

Because this is intermittent now I'm thinking electrical maybe?
We'll see how it goes.
