    I am having the same problem with my camera. I tired changing the battery because that's what I thought the problem was but it's still happening. The area I live in doesn't have a camera shop that I can take it to. I wish I knew a way to fix it.

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.

The LCD panel flashes an H when i turn it on


If a fault is detected, then the letter H appears on the LCD screen on top of the camera. The user manual for the ELPH 370Z says on the page that in such circumstances the user must remove the battery from the camera and wait for the H to disappear before replacing the battery. If this does not solve the problem, then the camera is actually junk. It is an APS film camera obsolete and spare parts are no longer available

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.

Is there a way to turn off the flash?


The flash is automatic, you cannot control the flash. But you can put some black tape over the flash if you really don't want flash. Remember though, if the camera meter decides flash is needed, then your pictures could turn out dark/underexposed by covering the flash.

The manual can be found here: http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/208_manuals.cfm?prodID=P_N1246352

The manual says use 100, 200 or 400 iso films.

Maybe try high iso film like 800 iso or 1600 iso, best to try this out ahead of time to make sure you are satisfied with the results. The high iso films need less light so should perform better without flash, but the camera may not be able to rate these films correctly, trial and error is definitely required.

My Canon AE-1 Program will not rewind. I shot the whole roll, rewound a little, and then accidentally opened the back cover. The counter reset to S, and the rewind crank just unscrews when I try to...


I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge.
You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel.
On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge.
If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.

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.

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film


It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem


Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.

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
