Ever since I got my camera, I had noticed that there was quite a long pause between pressing the button to take a picture and the flash actually going off...
A few weeks ago, I bought my camera to a party, and the flash just stopped working completely. I am able to only take pictures without the flash on. When the flash is on, or the camera is on the auto mode, the camera will make the beeping sound to indicate that it is about to take a picture - but the flash will not go off and no picture will be taken!
has this happened to anyone else?
i'm going to have to bring my camera into a licensed pentax shop, but in the mean time I am camera-less and worried that this is going to be expensive to fix
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had the same problem with my s4i, and went through a 3 1/2 month fiasco with Pentax getting it fixed. See my rather long ranting post under the thread about Pentax warranties.
