Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
One day I tried to take a picture but was unable to because the flash had malfunctioned. The flash never charges, and since I have it set not to take a picture while the flash is charging, nothing happens. I emailed Pentax and they think my flash shorted. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this?
No DIY fix for this. It will have to go back to Pentax or their agent. The likely cost of doing this could be well on the way to the price of a new camera.

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
