Having problems with your Pentax K100D Digital Camera ?

Pentax K100D will not power up

\015 When the K100D camera is turned on the battery icon continually flashes and thats it. Nothing works, no LCD screen and can not connect to the PC. Tried fresh batteries with the same issue. Please help\015

Answers :

First make sure you are using fresh lithium batteries. These cameras indicate low batteries quite early on. Rechargeables even when freshly charged are marginal.

\015\012If the problem persists remove the batteries. Set the camera switch to the off position. Set the focus switch to manual. Wait at least a minute. Then replace the batteries and switch on again.
\015\012
\015\012Operating with low batteries can confuse the firmware and it may be stuck in a low-battery loop. If this is the case this should reset the camera by allowing the electronics to power-down completely.

\015\012If this does not work you wiil have to contact pentax support.

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up. The battery is fully charged (as well as the backup battery) so that isn't the problem. Is there a "camera reset" procedure for this camera? Other ideas?

My Pentax Optio M4 suddenly started to shut down and power off after starting up. It starts up normally, then gives 3 short beeps, then shuts down as if I had just switched it off. I have recharged the battery but the problem still remains. I cannot reset the camera to factory defaults as it doesn't stay on long enough for me to access the memu options.

Camera locked Hi, I've got the blinking battery symbol when I switch on my K100D. I've tried switching to manual focus and leaving for a while with the batteries out, but still the same issue. It works ok with external power supply, so I uploaded ver 1.02 firmware to see if that would solve the issue but still the same fault. Is there anything else you can suggest I try? Thanks, Brian
