Water in camera


Remove the batteries and let it dry for good. To be sure all the damp on electronics evaporated. Put the camera on warm place (not to hot). You need to open all doors (SD card, battery etc..) even back cover to let the damp go out. Blowing dry air may accelerate the drying process.
Install batteries when you sure all the water trapped inside has evaporated completely.

Normally when camera gets wet, first remove battery, use dry facial quality tissue to wipe water, keep camera in a/c so that whatsoever moisture inside camera evaporates due to low humidity in AC room for 24 hours . Take hair drier set in low heat mode holding minimum 6 inches away from camera blow warm air in battery compartment, mirror compartment, memory card slot for 2minutes each. Wait for cooling down to room temperature. Put battery switch on. It should work. Wet camera if you switching on main board get short due to flash voltage in side camera.

How do you troubleshoot a pentax camera? My camera


A wet camera should not be turned on. Remove as much water from the battery and card compartment as possible. Bury the camera in a bowl of rice for a week before trying it.

Memory card error when I turn on camera


oops.. looks like many card errors, as just now i gave reply to 2

Test the memory cards using external card readers connected to computer/laptop and see if it works.
If it doesn't, then it can be formatted from computer and tested on Pentax again.

If still it doesn't work on Pentax then it can also be a small issue of contacts inside attracted dust. You can try using blower to clean dust if any in the place you insert the memory card and try again.

If it doesn't work then it it needs visit to some experienced person/technician/mechanic.
