Pentax Camera Clunks After Repair!

June 11th, 2019
I've just had my Pentax K-50 returned to me after a warranty repair. It now clunks when rocked from side to side, as if there is something loose and unstable. I do not recall it doing this before I sent it away.

Repairer says it is the Stabilisation Unit and is normal.

Does your camera clunk when it rocked from side to side?? Should I accept their explanation??

I googled "Pentax K-5o clunk" and found several sites that said it is no big deal.

Heree's one: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/58-troubleshooting-beginner-help/94122-beginners-question-about-noise-clunk-pentax-dslr.html

I'm not a Pentax Person, that's all the help I can provide!

My Pentax K-3ii makes a very low clunking sound now and again when I tilt it. Can't remember noticing it on the K-5 or K-m...

@bankmann apparently it's the stabilising unit, and only thuds when it's not turned on!! Thank you for your interest. J
