[SOLD] K10D for Parts or Repair Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
K10D for Parts or Repair

Asking Price
$110 USD + 3% Paypal Fee

Item Description

Photos can be found at -

For sale is a K10D for parts or repair. I think the shutter has died on the camera but do not know for sure. I've moved on to a K-7.

The camera fully functions, it turns on, focuses lenses, but will not fire when the shutter is pressed. Instead, it will just whirr for a second without raising the mirror or recording an image. Somehow the aperture lever is linked to this as aperture preview will not activate as well.

The camera has never been dropped and I have posted the story on how the Camera died on my blog which can be found here - Angelo Alaimo Blog Archive R.I.P. K10D – December 4, 2006 -> May 31, 2009

This camera was serviced twice by Pentax Canada. Once to fix the common chip-in-bottom-plate problem and a second time to fix a faulty sensor. The new sensor only has about 3500 clicks on it. Lens mount was replaced too.

USB connection is a bit flaky and im not sure if its the cord or camera but if you jiggle it, it will work.

- K10D Body
- DLI50 Battery
- Battery Charger and North American AC cord.
