No image recorded

Anyone experienced this?

I take a picture and the card access lamp flashes as if it's doing something, press the Playback button and there is only a black screen displayed.

Also Live View does not function although the screen information is there, the same applies to Video mode.

In Playback mode all the images that were there previously are displayed and the screen displays all the relevant information prior to taking the photograph.

Any help or advice would be appreciated, though it looks like I'll be making the journey to the Pentax repair facility again, already been there twice, I'm beginning to think I should have bought a nikcanon.

Try using a different card, but if the problem persists, it's likely the camera. Also, is the lock button disabled on the card?
