K100d wont format memory card

Make sure your new memory card is an SD card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, an SDHC card will not work in devices designed only for SD cards.

I bought a 4G SD card for my K100D and it gives me a card error message, the card works fine in my wife's Canon compact.

The K100D works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into SD slots, they will not work in devices not designed for SDHC. Apparently your wife's Canon is newer and SDHC-compatible.
The K100D is limited to SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

Pentax K100 Super D clicks, but no pictures.

Hate to say it, but it's dead. My Pentax K100 D Super did the same thing. Took it to the local camera shop. They scratched their heads and sent the body to Pentax. The reply that came back was that the circuit board was completely fried and it would cost more to fix than it would to buy a new body.

I was out of luck because the warranty was out (had it a year and a half), but with yours being less than a year, you should be able to get a new body without having to shell out $$$.

Shutter on k100d

Maybe you can try sensor cleaning mode;
Go to Menu>Set-up>Sensor cleaning, press right than choose "Mirror Up", wait a moment than power off the camera. Maybe this can help.

K100D flash doesn´t work

My camera with the dodgy flash is holidaying in Japan as they sent it to be fixed - not sure how old your camera is but I am trying to see if this is an issue that occurs with the camera model.... given that there are only two of us to date I am thinking that we may have just struck the jackpot :(
