Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
I have tried other lens and new batteries - no luck.If I go to manual focus the appropriate symbol appears. When I change the button to AF, no symbols light and there is no indication of even trying to focus. The shutter can be released. I have checked the lens I most use and by turning the focus ring the drive scew at the lens base turns. I saw a suggested fix for a similar problem that involved reflashing the firmware, but there was no expanation of how to do this.
Try the Pentax tech support they may have an idea But if it is a board fault- will it be an economical repair proposition? They may also offer a 'swap out' option if it is an on going issue.
