Notice: Power-Off Issue with the PENTAX K-3 II Digital SLR Camera

Thank you for your patronage of RICOH IMAGING products.

Recently, we have discovered that some PENTAX K-3 II cameras will not turn off, even after the user moves the power lever to the OFF position.

We sincerely apologize for any trouble and inconvenience this problem may have caused.
