Wish I would have known this about the wireless remote, I just bought the wired remote CS-205 and and plugged it in but it will not trigger the shutter release only focus. I do not have access to my manual for another 9 hours anyone know if this is an issue with the cable release or I'm just missing something.

Hi Dan,
I just reproduced your problem on my K-5 (my 645D is in for warranty service :-( ) by pulling the jack a wee bit out in the socket.
Make sure the jack is inserted all the way. The last few mm requires a little more power to push past, and there's a little click when the jack goes all the way in.

Hope that's all it takes... :-)

Best,
Jostein

I've been using my infrared "F" remote on my Pentax 654D; works like a charm...

You can find them on ebay, as well as the newer water-proof IR remotes...

Good luck,

Tim!

Sorry to hear, Dan.

Makes it more likely that the cable release is faulty, I think.
