Many people have solved this problem by replacing their battery - either a new LiON battery or purchasing the adapter and using Sanyo eneloop AA batteries. If this doesn't solve your problem we need more information, or you need to send the camera in for service.

Dear Guruh, welcome to the forum, I'm also from Indonesia and also experiencing the same problem with my Kr. The mirror flop twice if I press the shutter button once, but still able to take pictures. This problem can be solved by using AA batteries (eneloops) and in my case it works...... Try this solution, maybe that will work for your problem. If the problems still persist, as already mentioned by jim johnson, give us more info or go to the nearest service center.....
