K5-II: power/preview switch a bit sticky - what to do?
8 months ago

The power on switch / preview lever on my K5-II has gotten a bit sticky. Beats me why, I never was in any challenging environment AFAIK. And I never had this problem on my other K bodies before; construction of that switch seems to be more or less the same on all of them.

But reasons for the stickiness aside: Does anyone know a method to clean up that switch without disassembling it? Wouldn't do the latter, rather send it it in to service if the problem gets worse ...

Thanks for any help on this!

Phil
