Re: 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.

With what can i cover a polaroid flash


The Polaroid 600 doesn't have an automatic flash. To use the flash, insert the flash bar into the flash socket. To turn off the flash, remove the flash bar. Refer to the manual.
If you have a different camera, please reply to this post and give the model number.

I have a Pentax IQZoom 160 and it has error code U3 when I turn it on. The flash and zoom try to deploy several times but only the flash comes out.


If the 'U' disappears when the zoom lever is moved your camera is ready to use. It may be defective if it comes up often.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

How do I change the date? I don't have a manual.


1. With power off, press the MODE button to select the DATE mode.
2. Press the zoom out (three trees) button for more than two seconds to enter the date/time set mode.
3. Press the zoom out (three trees) button to select year, month, day, hour, or minute (selected number will flash).
4. Use the zoom in (one tree) button to advance the number.
5. Repeat steps 3. and 4. to set each value.
6. Press the zoom out (three trees) button until the colon (in the hours:minutes) is flashing. When the colon stops flashing, date and time setting is completed.
7. Press the MODE button and the power will switch off.

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.


The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.

Instructions


There are two conditions under which a blinking "H" will appear in the
LCD panel: (1) when the film has been loaded incorrectly or (2) when the
camera's self-test process detects an internal malfunction. If a
blinking "H" indication appears, perform the following operations in
attempt to resolve the situation:

1. Rewind and remove the film using the rewind button, then remove the
battery to clear the memory.

2. Clean the contacts at the base of the battery compartment with a
clean pencil eraser to ensure proper contact between the camera and
battery.

3. Replace the battery, power the camera back up1.gif and operate it as if
it had film loaded, pressing the shutter release.

Flashing H


I have the same problem. The problem is with the zoom. When you turn your camera on, before shooting a picture, zoom slightly (but do not return to the initiall zoom setting) and shoot your picture. It works.If you need to zoom more, don't worry, any zoom change will alow you to take as many pictures as you want.The camera displays H only if you shoot a picture after turning on your camera, without previously zooming in and out outside the automatic zoom setting.

Flashing HI


there is a flexible ribbon cable carrying signals from camera body to the lense assembly. Due to regular use it gets worn out, thus it gets broken and is not able to perform the task for which the camera has given the signal. in your camera also the same flex cable is broken. Get it changed at some good repairer
