Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
Camera has functioned perfectly for approx. 6 months since new. Yesterday, on test prior to job, all functions on camera body indicated normal, but shutter release button would not operate. Changed batteries, followed book re static elec, etc., but shutter release still would not work (all functions/indications on body normal). Removed lens and camera indications normal, sensor worked, image captured...replaced lens, but camera release inop. Replaced lens with another Pentax FA (28.200) lens....release still inop. I'm getting ready to send to Pentax for repair as it appears to be a body malfunction. However, before I call FEDEX, I would appreciate any comments from any of our capable group which might indicate a fix, or if the problem is only the nut behind the lens.
I've had similar problems with my Pentax Super-A on an intermittent basis. If you haven't replaced the batteries I suggest you try that first. Not sure why, but that has sorted my problem out quite a few times (even when the existing batteries still have a fair amount of juice left in them).
