Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.
Remove the lens and fire off a few shots. Re-attach the lens and try again. That sometimes works. ... Pentax K10D Body Only Digital Camera

A/C adapter Just received my first digital camera,the 2020.Should it be fully funtional with the A/C adapter plugged in and no batteries or is it necessary that there be batteries in the camera and the A/C just takes over when it is plugged in.With just the A/C the viewfinder on top the camera shows some info but no other camera functions seem to work.Don't know if there's a problem or this is how it's supposed to be.
The camera should be fully functional with just the AC adapter. I hope you're using the Olympus adapter and not a substitute. Some substitutes will work ok but others can cause problems. The AC adapter output should be 6.5 volts at 2000 ma (2 amps). ... Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom Digital Camera

I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp.
