Regular readers may remember a couple of months ago we told you about service advisories from a range of companies, all identifying similar problems with certain of their digital camera models.
Japanese imaging company Pentax Imaging Co. has now followed suit with a service advisory on its global website that mirrors past advisories from Canon, Fujifilm, Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Ricoh, and Sony. Pentax's advisory describes the problem as follows:
"1. The LCD monitor may become dark and the image does not display. As with the other companies, Pentax says it will offer free repair of this problem for certain products, regardless of warranty status. Pentax's list of affected cameras is:
2. The image falls into disorder."
Further details can be found in Pentax's product service advisory.
We have added Pentax's information to our ongoing in depth article, "CCD Sensor Problems in Consumer Imaging Products", which compiles everything we currently know about this issue.
