Question about Pentax IQZoom EZY-R 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Loaded film, but won't work and a "3" is flashing.

My son is down in Peru with the camera. He wrote to me and said that the Pentax IQZoom EZY-R after loading film flashed a "3" and wouldn't work. Any ideas what might be causing this?

Re: Loaded film, but won't work and a "3" is flashing.

The IQ Zoom cameras are designed to display error codes (E0, E2, E9, E10, E1A, E37, E90, HL, H4, H5, etc.) when something goes wrong internally with one of the mechanisms or electronic components. These diagnostic displays help to determine where the problem is. When you see an error code, ask a qualified PENTAX repair technician to examine the camera. For information on a specific error code, call Pentax customer service department toll-free at 1-800-877-0155, Monday-Friday 7:30am-4:30pm, Mountain Standard Time.

What does HI or H1 mean?


This is a zoom error code - the flexible circuit going to the shutter in the barrel is probably worn out. It'll have to go to a repair shop.

U3 flashing


I wish i could help you, but Pentax's manual is poor and many people (over the net) face Pentax error message with no meaning... i would take it to your local camera repair shop. If they can't help you call ProCamera in harlottesvile VA. He collects pentax owns his own shop. He's been in business for 12yr's he is also a succesful photoghrapher. I''ve heard nothing but the best about this guy Bill Moretz. I have a pentax if anything happens to hit i know where i shipping it of too and pentax is the only camera i will own. His prices are right so the shipping cosr is worth it.
