Pentax ist ds - only black with a streak images

Was fine, now just dark images with a small grey partial streak on the right side.... Any ideas?

My *istDL did this except with a horizontal red line. I suspect it's the end, because when I sent it in to Ricoh they told me parts were unavailable. Perhaps yours is a different issue - loose wire or something - and can be repaired, but I would be prepared for the worst if I were you.

I'd try another memory card and a settings reset. If those don't help, it might be time to retire the camera. Perhaps there's a K-50 out there with your name on it Best of luck!
