    My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn’t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn’t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something.
    I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, cleaning the lens contacts, even a different SD card, but nothing makes any difference. The people at the local camera shop couldn’t do anything either. They just said I would have to take it to a camera repair shop.
    Is there anything else I can do?
    I’m not very impressed that an expensive camera bought in only August 2006 should give problems so soon.
