Having problems with your Pentax K100D Digital Camera ?

Pentax K100 Super D clicks, but no pictures.

\015 Full battery, empty memory, all set to go! I turn on the camera and everything is ok. As soon as I go to take a shot, not only does it not take a picture, but it makes a light, and fast repeating clicking noise. In the eye view, nothing shows either; no light meter, or\302\240aperture\302\240readings.\302\240\015\012\015\012The camera is new so I'm heartbroken if it's broken.\015

Hate to say it, but it's dead. My Pentax K100 D Super did the same thing. Took it to the local camera shop. They scratched their heads and sent the body to Pentax. The reply that came back was that the circuit board was completely fried and it would cost more to fix than it would to buy a new body.

I was out of luck because the warranty was out (had it a year and a half), but with yours being less than a year, you should be able to get a new body without having to shell out $$$.

I have a pentax optio 8.1 megapixel camera. I have a 1gb scandisk. The memory is full. I want to delete some of the pictures. When I go to a picture, I push the trash can button. The response is the trash can followed by All images/sounds. I don't want to delete all the pictures, just the one I am looking at. If I click OK will all the images be deleted or just the one I am looking at? Bottom line, how do I delete one image at a time?

When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing.
