My Pentax K200D takes shots without pushing the button

My Pentax K200D takes pictures without touching the button--same thing happens when I turn it off. It will click off a shot then too. What's going on?

I would guess that it's an electronics issue, something on the button or the board is failing. I don't think it would be something easily (or cheaply) fixed.

My K10D does a similar thing but it's with other buttons, not the shutter button. They simply trigger themselves when I'm reviewing a picture.

Thanks--I was afraid it was an electronics issue. It triggers when I turn it off too.

I have a question. Who holds the copywrite to this photographs? The Camera? Just thinking back to the questions on the selfie taken by the gorilla.
