K10D shutter stuck / error 222

Having odd problems with my k10D that I have never encountered before. When I turn it on, the screen blinks with error 222 and it won't fire.. I recently put on a new lens on it, used it few times, and this morning it started giving me this hassle.

Has anyone else encountered this? Could the lens be causing it? I tried different settings, removing the lens, battery, card etc. but no help.

Sad.

Could try to re-install latest(or current) version of firmware, should initiate reset.
beyond that, repair facility. Might search Pentax corporate for error code.
Have you looked towards back of manual for error code index.

pentax canada has all the firmware posted

Pentax Canada - K10D

you can also get the manual there as well, though it doesn't mention this error code

also the service manual is available at this site but you need to be a member (don't know if there is a fee?)

User error

Check the menu option 'Use Aperture Ring' and see if 'Prohibited' is checked. If you want to use the aperture ring on the lens, check the "Permitted" option. When using Permitted, you won't be able to control the aperture automatically. This is what is throwing the error at you...

When using 'Prohibited', the aperture is set by rolling the rear wheel on the body, but the lens must be set to "A" on the aperture ring.

I don't have my K10 with me to check it but I don't get an error like that on my K7 I just get a flashing F---

That won't throw an error message. The camera simply won't take a photo and IIRC, the F-- does flash when the camera cannot see aperture information (and Use Aperture Ring = Prohibited (or whatever it said on the K10d)).
