Question about Cameras
The camera has tiny motors that drive most mechanics such as the functions of the lens, shutter, and other items. Each one runs off a separate capacitor which stores the correct voltage needed to run these motors. If one of these capacitors gets a hairline crack in the side the voltage leaks away. In other words not enough voltage can be stored in it to be a useful capacitor.You can check for an estimate for repairs through keh.com in Georgia which is a highly rated camera shop

It sounds like the shutter is stuck. This is along the lines of a lens error, and the following web blog describes things you can try to fix the problem:
Check that all your settings are set to an automatic mode, also.
The first thing to try is to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, while it's extended ($4 at Walmart). Second thing to try to to gently "bump" the camera on the palm of one hand, in the hope of freeing it up.
If none of these suggestions works, contact Pentax to see what it would cost to fix it. Here's their site:
You could also run it into a local camera repair shop, after seeing how much Pentax wants for servicing, and see what they would do it for. Second opinions never hurt.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
