Default pentax km problem

My km has developed a shutter/ flash problem. In good light, when it's not needed, the flash will pop up and the shutter will fire. When it is dark enough to require the flash the flash fires for a longish time and makes a buzzing noise but the shutter does not open. Can anyone help, can this be fixed or is it a terminal problem/

It sounds like you are in AFS mode and not in focus. Set the camera to AFC or MF and it should fire.

Thanks a lot for the advice. I have taken the camera back to its original default settings and this seeks to have cured it.
