Having problems with your Pentax K200D 10 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera With Shake Reduction 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6 Lens and 50-200M ?


\015 Hi my pentax k200d has stopped working... it just flashes the depleted battery sign in the lcd panel. it isn't the batteries (USING recommended batteries) and the contacts are clean, any suggestions?\015

Answers :

The battery charge indicator is temperature sensitive. If you switch off and on again, do you still get the low battery warning? Have you tried with a second set of batteries - either rechargeable, or lithium or alkaline. I would do this in a warm room, and try it with new alkaline cells. You lose some of the functions, but if the indicator say charged, and you can take a shot, then the body is OK.
Call me old-fashioned, but I use a multimeter on all NEW batteries to make sure they are functional - I bought a card of cheap LR44s and the first three were either dead or low on voltage.

Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

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?
