Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
My camera won't take a picture, I tried to take photos and it flashes AV - - on the top display. No mode will work to take pictures.
I have recently had a similar problem and had tried everything I could until I realised the camera will not trigger if you have it set to manual focus and a manual lens.

I found this which seems similar
"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
