HI everyone! i'm Renita from Indonesia. I've been using Pentax K-r for about 5 years, but right now the camera is having a little problem.
i've searched the problem on the internet and it's probably a mirror flopping but i'm not really sure.

the problem that occurs :
- the power button won't shut correctly (whenever i put it on off, it keeps on)
- mirror flop (capturing without pressing the shutter button)
- whenever i use my lens (tokina 70 - 200 mm) the image result is only a half.

does anyone here know how to fix it?

thank you so much!

Welcome Renita. I would suggest posting your question in the Troubleshooting or DSLR (Kr section) section of the forum, you will get a better response there. Beyond that you will find a plethora of Pentax knowledge here so enjoy.

Welcome to the forum, I've never had a K-r so I'd follow the good advice offered by KxBlaze.
