Having problems with your Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera ?

My iST DL has stopped transfer of pictures to SD cards. Have tried many that work in other cameras. All I get is a black image. The recording light flickers as though it is actually transferring image to card.

The battery of my samsung s860 was recently dead so i though that was why the lens wouldnt go out all the way. I have tried two new sets of batteries and the camera is reacting the same way. The lense wont go out all the way, a blurry image is projected on the screen then the screen goes black, the green light flickers, it beeps rather obnoxiously three times and the lens retracks again as it turns off. can my camera be resuscitated!?

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black.

I have changed the battery, changed Compact Flash Cards and nothing corrects it. Even when I upload the picture to the computer, the image is only one about 1/4
