Just look for the post by 'airshod'. He has even put up a couple of links to pdf files with photos of the whole procedure. I used them and got mine fixed. Exactly the same problem as yours.
Be careful, though: Jackstar's (aka airshod) instructions leave this out, which you will discover after putting the whole camera back together (which is a pain): the ViewFinder (VF) will go dead, plus the picture in the LCD will not reverse when you reverse the LCD panel (which means that when you flip the panel to watch yourself while you video yourself, the picture will be upside-down, although you don't need to worry about it being recorded properly, of course. It's just a pain to aim the correctly when it's not showing the right way up!). Airshod had the same happen to him.
If you need further info on the VF dying after re-assembly, look at this link:
Unfortunately I won't have time to try the suggestion for a while, so I won't be of much help. I guess a camera is more useful with a broken VF and a working LCD panel, than the other way around.
Sony really ought to have addressed this issue by now. It's not reasonable to expect the camera to loose its LCD after only a year or two!
Brush off any lose dirt from both the lens and bayonet mount and the autofocus drive shaft . If you are still not getting camera to auto focus your lenses have an expert look at the body : this is not an expensive problem to repair on these Pentaxes either a small mechanical problem or the connection to the pc board is bad. In either case only the front of the camera has to be dismantled ( +- 1 hour of labour to do the whole job ).
no ideas on how you can get it working.
There is I should think a connection adrift.

But be prepared for a zilch answer- I don't think a 'repair' will come into the equation
