Hello I am hoping someone can help me, I am currently in malaysia and my Pentax *ist DS has stopped working.
Problem - flash popup, +- AV button and shutter release button do not work.

when pushed a soft rapid 'clicking' noise can be heard on each button.

all other functions - menu, mode dial function

if someone can offer help asap it would be fantastic.

many thanks




Trent

trent, i'm sure you've tried everything. sounds like you have serious problems. just on a whim??? if you can access the menu, try locking up your mirror and see if that will unfreeze it.

Just one suggestion before you send it off for servicing, have you removed the batteries and left them out for about 15 minutes, then reinstalled them and tried starting the camera up. Sometimes electronic glitches occur that can be cleared by completely removing power for a long enough period to completely remove any residual energy that may be in the chips.

The nice thing about this suggestion is that, it may not help but it definitely won't hurt.

My thought exactly Ira, and also check that your batteries (or just one) have not gone belly up on you by using a second set.
