K-7 broken? Erratic behavior.
Dec 27, 2010
I'm restarting this thread as I started one earlier with a poorly chosen Subject line. I'm curious if there is a more appropriate way to accomplish this.
When I posted my other thread I thought a Transcend card was the source of erratic behavior of my K-7. Now after trying some other cards as well as no card and having the problems persist I think its the camera.
Unfortunately the erratic behavior is intermittent making it hard to consistently attribute the malfunction to any one factor. Symptoms include:
1. upon power-on, rear and top LCDs would turn on but there would be no metering activity in general and no AF response from a half-press of the shutter button.
2. Sometimes when I turn it off the rear LCD turns off but the top LCD stays on. Removing battery of course solves this problem.
3. No response from front or rear dials but mode dial would cause mode changes.
Have any other K-7 users experienced these kinds of behavior and resolved them?
