Re: af540gz flash stuck to k-20 : How can I remove it?

Like was noted earlier, this problem was reported on many many times about 2 years ago. I was so afraid of mounting my new 540 on my K10 that before it went on for the first time, I performed a pinectomy. I think that the best approach that I have seen is to fill the hole in the camera. That way everthing can be put back to original condition should warranty work need be done. I would suggest shaving down a round tooth pick and filling the hole with that. If the need arises, just fish it out with a needle. The secret would be to make it a tightish but not very tight fit. This would be simplier than taking the flash apart plus you wouldn't be voiding a warranty.

Two places I'd rather be ... on the road with my kit and my lady, or in my favorite store trying to satisfy my LBA.
