Why isn't my K100D Flash not working?
please ensure that you've not used the camera for more than the advised amount of time by the manufacturer. Also, you can attempt to use the same brand/type of batteries as was including with your camera when you got it. Some manufacturers put internal fimware/software restrictions on their devices. For printers, this would be done for cartridges and in the case of your camera, it would be for batteries.
Lastly, I would check that your sd card isn't full before calling Pentax to refer you to a repair shop.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

will do the job.If you want to edit your photos, photo editing programs don't care where the photos came from. You can use any photo editing program, such as PhotoShop
or the GIMP

PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10
Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.
If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?
