If possible, i'd return it for a refund. Anything's usually fixable, but a camera that age will probably cost more to repair than it's worth.

Inspect the AF coupler. Does it extend beyond the mount or is it hidden inside? Is there any visible damage? The spring that normally pushes it out could be broken.

Thanks GibbyThemole & Adam,
I remove the Len and look inside while I turn on the Camera,It has Loud Conking noise from camera Body.I did not see anything moving in there...
I bought from Our Member here in Marketplace.

By read his email this Nice pentax K-10 Will Not Repairable !!!.

The "conking" noise is probably because power on dust removal is enabled.

Excellent! The AF on shutter half-press may have been disabled in the menu settings.
