I am in a bit of a panic. Took the camera (K10d) out last night and had major problems with the focus. Light was rather iffy so left it till this morning (bright sunlight).
Try as I will, the AF just continues to wander from extent to extent and won't settle on anything. Mf can be used, but no signal or beep.
Have checked all settings ( Auto,Sel,and centre with no success.) Tried Beep switched on and off. Af button on and off. Tried half press on release button. Tried AF button. Nothing changes.
Tried with 3 different lenses
Pentax DA 50-200
Pentax FAJ 75-300
with no change to situation.
Battery fully charged.
Seems I have a major problem. But maybe I'm missing something. Any thoughts out there that may help?
Or do I continue to pack it up to send away for attention. At least it is stilll under warranty, which is one redeeming feature.
Thanks a lot for any thoughts.

One problem with computers (which any electronic camera is) is that there is a lot that can go wrong. I will support what Beth said, it may just be that it needs a full system reboot. It's amazing the difference that can make. If it doesn't work there is good news, as Richard said... there will be emotional support here at Pentax World Headquarters (we are the world headquarters, aren't we?). I also know from lots of experience (I used to be a Pentax merchant) that they have an excellent customer service department and good service turn around.
