not taking photos

My problem is that my Pentax istd will not take photos. It will however take sometimes if I shut the flash off. I have put in new batteries and reset it to factory settings all to no avail. Not sure what else to try. Thanks for the help

I did the no batteries and it didn't change anything. Any other ideas?
