Mirror flop: any solution other than sending it to C.R.I.S?
Feb 18, 2013

My K-5 occasionally has the "mirror-flop" problem. I was advised by a poster at Pentax Forums that it will not go away on its own, and that I have to send the camera for repair. That person has a lot of credibility, and I trust what he says, but the camera has already been to CRIS twice since November, and I am reluctant to send it again. Has anyone found a solution to this problem? Once it starts, does it always continue/get worse?
