Could you let us know if it was the orignal Pentax battery?

I tried two batteries. One was a Pentax, the other a Lenmar.

Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, There is no quick fix.

Your shutter is failing , The camera needs service so will require returning to Pentax.

I shipped it to Pentax yesterday.

If your desperate to get the shot and the camera is less important then remove the lens and flick the mirror a few times. This may/hould unlock the shutter but may ultimately destroy the camera.

I tried that, but it did not help.

I do like the idea of getting the shot being more important than the camera.
