Try another card in your camera but check the inside the card holder that you have not got a damaged connector in there. and format the card with the camera and not on pc. Hope that help you.

SOURCE: Pentax *ist DS digital SLR Autofocus problem

I had a similar problem with my istD until I finally managed to fix it.
Try this:
Take off the lens and gently lift the reflex mirror with you finger nail.
Very gently prise open the secondary mirror concealed underneath it to check that it moves freely.
Now take a pencil eraser and rub the electrical contacts around the lens mouth on the body.
Give them a good rub and blow out any resulting dust.
Pop the lens back on and take a few shots to confirm that autofocus now works perfectly (make sure you have fresh batteries)
Let me know if it works for you too.

SOURCE: AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached

I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

Have you tried another memory card? It might be a dirty contact on the card socket in your camera.

I try to take a photo and is makes the sound but nothing is displayed or saved to the card, any ideas?


This could possible be happening due to a fatly memory card, try using another memory card and see if it works.

CARD LOCKED


take out the memory card and move the switch located somewhere on the memory card usually on the side to the unlocked position. Then the memory card isn't locked this is so you don't accidentally delete important things
Thanks and enjoy,

Pentax istD won't take pictures


i found this which seems similar

http://www.pentaxuser.co.uk/forum/topic/ist-D--HELP-444/p-0#comm_2164

"I know this is late, but the issue sounds to me like the aperture ring is not on A. and if this is a manual lens then you have to set the mode to hyper-program mode and set it to work with "other than A" on aperture."

----
this was my issue, i never knew that has i bought the camera 2nd hand without a manual - your issue might be something else but it's worth posting just incase

Flash stopped working


No DIY fix for this. It will have to go back to Pentax or their agent. The likely cost of doing this could be well on the way to the price of a new camera.
