SOURCE: Pentax K10D won't work with lens from Pentax K100 (film0

The lenses are probably manual focus lenses,  

  1. Make sure that the apature ring is set to 'A' or automatic, 
  2. if these are manual focus lenses then switch the focus switch on the left side of the camera body to MF 
  3. If this still doesn't work, or you are having trouble with the apature ring then press the menu button to go to the  menu then press the right arrow key untill you are in the  Custom Settings, scroll through the custom settings with the up and down arrow keys until about the 2nd from bottom there is an option called "using aperture ring" set this to 2 (Permitted) This will make the camera take a image when lens is on any f-stop manually. 
Try this and everything should work fine. If all this hasn't worked then try seting the mode dial on the camera to M manual mode. Cheers

SOURCE: i purchased an SDHC card for my pentax K100 and it

Unfortunately, with the current software onboard the k100d isn't compatible with a sdhc card. It looks like it's max capacity is 2gig.
There's some hope that there may be a firmware upgrade for the camera later, but for now it's limited to 2g cards.

SOURCE: How do you change the shutter speeds on an pentax

You can't.

In Auto Pict mode the camera selects the best of the pre-set Scene modes for the photograph which you're about to take. It's basically a variation of fully automatic mode, so the camera selects everything for you.

Auto Pict and Auto are designed to let anyone pick up your camera and take a fully automated snapshot without needing to worry about what settings to use.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

SOURCE: My Pentax K100 DSLR is

"AV" means apeture priority. This means that you set the apeture that the camera will use, and it decides the shutter speed. The flashing "av" means that you've picked an apeture that the camera can't pick a suitable shutter speed for at this light level. I would suggest picking a different apeture, or switch the camera to full automatic mode via the dial on the top left of the camera.

How do i change my resolution from 72 to 300 on my pentax k100 d?


You don't. Dots per inch (DPI) is irrelevant to the camera, and it sets it to 72 only because it needs to set it to something. DPI is only relevant when printing. You can set it indirectly by choosing the size of the print, or you can set it directly and let that control the size of the print. Either way, it's up to whatever program you use for printing, not the camera that shoots the picture.

Pentax K100 Super D clicks, but no pictures.


Hate to say it, but it's dead. My Pentax K100 D Super did the same thing. Took it to the local camera shop. They scratched their heads and sent the body to Pentax. The reply that came back was that the circuit board was completely fried and it would cost more to fix than it would to buy a new body.

I was out of luck because the warranty was out (had it a year and a half), but with yours being less than a year, you should be able to get a new body without having to shell out $$$.

Pentax K100 problem


Might be temporary lack of communication between lens and body - try cleaning the contacts on both gently with a lint-free cloth and a very little IPA.
