Hi
it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.

That is lens error.

Try first removing the battery to reset the camera, and ensure that batteries are alkaline, are fresh and fully charged.
Restart camera with no memory card inside.

If you still get an error then lens are stuck, and the camera must be disassembled at a repair point to fix the problem.

Pentax Z10 won't turn on.


Press and hold the playback button for 2 seconds. The camera should turn on and be in playback mode. Switch to Camera Mode by opening the from slider cover. Hope that fixes it. See Pentax Z10 Manual Page 34.
