Help please. I am sooo upset. I got my new pentax K100D in the mail 2 days ago on the 14th from Bh Photo. I have taken approx 540 photos with the camera, and maybe 1/2 of those used the flash. Today while taking pics the flash went out! Now auto doesn't work, only manual... and ofcourse my house is really dark... so no pics. HUbby and I tried everything to troubleshoot and the flash is indeed out. I attached my external (hotshoe) flash and it works just fine and auto works fine with the external flash hooked up. So this is going to be a warranty issue. So has anyone delt with Pentax Warranty before? Can I have them ship me a new camera using my credit card as "collateral" and then ship them back the defective camera when I get the working one? The reason is I just signed up for a class, its non-refunable and I need a working camera now. I can use this camera with the external flash until the new camera arrives, but if I have to send it back first (and wait weeks for replacment) then I am SOL on my class, not to mention without a camera for weeks while I just shelled out 600.00 for this thing! PLease tell me they aren't going to make me send this one back for repairs, i can't wait forever to have my BRAND NEW camera working.
