Pentax k5 emergency
Feb 18, 2012

Anyone had a problem with Pentax K5 all of the sudden not function?

I am overseas right now (tokyo for now) and it all of the sudden died last night after a good day of casual shooting on my rare off day while I am here.

Let me describe it to see if anyone can help. It turns on, I can hold the camera and focus and it peeps to indicate the focus. However when I press the shutter button, it hums and it does not release the shutter. Then it gives me the screen to say that the battery is depleted and it turns off itself. But the battery is fully charged.

I am extremely disappointed that this camera sort of decided to go on strike. Anyone with any idea or had any issues like this?
