Having problems with your Pentax K100D Super Digital SLR Camera ?

I bought a PENTAX SLR K 100 D camera, loaded a new SD card, formatted it in the camera , inserted new batteries and tried to take a picture, No pictire, the shutter button seens to not be working. There is a f 689 in the view finder. I tried both MF and AF , both AUTO PICT and P ,The camera is set at defalt settings.I need help or must return it asap.


Answers :

Just curious if the new batteries are alkaline or rechargeables. If they're rechargeables, make sure they're fully charged, but since alkalines come with the camera, I would use those.
\015\012Couldn't find any information about the F689 in the view finder, but my advice would be to return the camera- it just sounds like there's something going on that would require servicing. It should at least be taking the pictures in AF mode.
You will need the owners manual to check its operations

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?


Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the s ... Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings? I can look at previous pictures taken, they look fine, I just can't figure out why I can't see anything through the view finder or LCD monitor in order to take new pics. i have been reading through the manual, tried new batteries (regular AA)--any suggestions?

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?


This ccan be an error in the lens settings that have changed the alignment or a possible shift of the lens before the CCD imager.\012This canot be retified wxternally asn I advice that you get help from Nikon, specially if under warranty for a ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

I was taking test photos around the house with my new camera and the flash won't fire properly (the flash pops up out of the camera but it makes little sparking sounds and flickering on and off). I've tried various modes including auto night etc but it won't stop flickering (just sparking sounds and a flickering flash like a light bulbs does just before it blows).also I have tried taking images using the basic auto mode in a low lit area and the flash pops up but does not fire.

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic


The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras

Also, after downloading pictures to save on my PC, I put the card back into the camera but when I want to view the photo's some of them state "not compatible" so in essence I've lost the picture.

Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.

When I try to view or delete photos, the camera keeps defaulting to the photo taking mode. It goes back and forth between the two functions. When I do manage to view a photo or delete one, it sounds like the camera is actually taking a photo. Could this be a problem with the memory stick? New batteries do not correct the problem.
