Having problems with your Pentax K100D Digital Camera ?

Dropped my pentax k100d. Lense is fine, Camera says card locked, will not delete or fire shutter. Sent for repair, was told circuit board was damaged and quoted £306 for repair. Is it possible to buy a new circuit board and have it fitted as I can not afford the quoted amount on repairs, Also this a great camera.


Answers :

Your best bet is to try a local camera shop and have them fix it. Cameras are dangerous to disassemble yourself because of extremely high voltage electronics that can kill you if you touch the wrong parts. I had a K100D and it's circuits were also fried at one point, so I can sympathize with you. Try taking it to a local shop and seeing if they can beat Pentax's price. Odds are good they will try, but do not attempt this yourself. Even if you could find the parts (which you likely can't) then you will end up better off having it professionally fixed.

I have a fairly new Canon Power Shot SD 1200 IS Digital Elph. I cannot find the manual, software or the cord to download them to my computer. Is is possible to download a manual and buy a new cord and software? I think it accidently was thrown away with the box. I can't download the 8 G card on my media reader either, so at this time I can't get my pictures loaded online. What can I do? Diane

Lens error I sent in the camera to a certified Nikon repair center that has quoted me a price of $225.00 to repair. It needs a new lens mechanism and some minor adjustments and cleaning. My dilemma is whether at that cost, to trash the camera and buy a new one, or shop around for a repair shop that can do yhe repair at less out of pocket cost.

I am interested in buying Nikon's new digital D60 camera what i need to know is if I can use all the Nikon lenses I have that fit my 35mm camers

Hi! just want to know if it is possible to change the sensor of a nikon D2H by the sensorof the nikon D2X to obtain 12.5 megapixels or more since i love my camera and can't afford to buy a new model my contact [email protected] thank you for your time

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?

I had my nikon coolpix s210 in my bag and I bumped against a wall, not that hard it seemed. I checked my camera and everything seemed fine but once I turned it on a big crack appeared on the screen. Is it worth the fix or should I just buy a new one? I checked the camera shortly before I placed it in my bag so I don't think the break came before the incident. But I'm heart broken and desperate for my camera. Please help if possible. Thank you.

Fixing yourself As long as you take it steady and have a box with compartments in for all the screws at different stages you should be all right. This model has the older style wires with different size plugs so you really can't go wrong. I think it is only the screen and possibly the keypad that have ribbon strips to worry about.

Blurry pictures I have had this camera for a couple years and have taken thousands of pictures with it. I have been very happy until recently most of the pictures are blurry and look like the camera is not focusing properly. I am wondering if it is possible (if not common) for grit to get in the lens mechanism restricting the lens from moving to the fully extended position. I am considering a professional cleaning but don't know the cost/benefit when weighed against just buying a new camera.
