I called Pentax and they said it's a known problem and the lens needs to be re-synchronized. They said this is usually caused by dust in the lens.
I have to send the camera to : -
Pentax U.K. Limited
It's a free repair if you bought the camera less than a year ago o/w they will send you a quote for the repair.

SOURCE: Camera shuts off after one shot
Set the camera to clean ccd mode and carefully remove the lens. If you can't see the ccd but only the shutter then the shutter is sticking. I have this problem when not using the camera regularly. My solution to free the shutter was just to set the camera to long exposure and just keep restarting the camera and taking a photo until the shutter moves. This problem happened from the very first time I had the camera run low on batteries at a few months old but at the time I never checked the shutter and the camera just restarted once and it worked.

this generally happens if you have dropped it. when the message comes. try tapping the camera. if it works then you are lucky. if not then you have to change the lens array. it costs about 60$

i had a problem with my psp. i turn it on and it would shut off.till i tried turning it on and put it on hold and it stood on. so i figured that if you have this problem when you turn it on just slightly put it on hold and answer solved. since then it works normal but i don't trust it so i always do this method. ps my psp is a 1000 it might work with the others try it out. remember try it on hold when you turn it on its worth a shoot before you waste money on aother one.pss i try all these solution on this page before i realized my problem
