Having problems with your Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera ?

Picture mode Only half of the picture modes are available. Neither tv or av are avilable only p and m On the other side of the dial only macro sport flash off and auto are availabl So when I put the dial on tv it will say program exposure. Is this a software problem or a problem with the dial


Answers :

You also need to make sure the lens apature ring is in the right position, turned all the way to the right and set on the A locked position. also go thru all the menus and make sure all the custom settings are set back to factory and start over with the settings
This is most likely a problem with the dial itself. Generally speaking the software within the camera does not fail unless something breaks within the camera. To make absolutely sure - contact the manufacturer and find out if there is an active recall for this product. If it is a manufacturing or software fault they will recall it. Otherwise it will have to be professionally repaired.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair

Hi I have a Canon PowerShot 460 Digital Camera and it works great when I want to take pictures or make movies. The problem is that when I try to connect it to my computer to retrieve the pictures on the camera, my computer says that my camera isn't detected. I don't understand why that is because the camera's software works fine. I thought it was a problem with the USB cord, but it works fine with other electronic devices.

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?

My problem was in transferring from camera to PC without "picture power". Nikon installed the new software by phone. I believe the pictures transferred OK but I can't see or find them to do anything with them.
