Try lithium batteries. If that does not solve your problem, then your camera system board has shorted out.

My asahi pentax camera has a serial #6320891. Could you tell me the year? Plus have a 50 mm lens, a 49 mm close -up lens #1,2 and 4, a 67mm lens with a 67mm hase -1 lens and a vivitar auto 215 flash. Any...


these days second hand photo camera's with film, are not worth much. Some younger persons (really only a few) would like to try these camera's for a while, but they don't pay much. Not knowing what lenses you have it is impossible to guess what their value can be. A 50 mm f 1,2 would bring more than a f 2 or even a 2,8.
Then before you could put it on ebay, you should at least shoot one film, to see if the camera still works.
Lately I bought a Nikon F90 and a F50 with a zoom lens and one was 30 dollar the one with the zoom was 20 dollar. both are in excellent condition, making fine photos with different lenses.
You could try checking on ebay, what they ask for a camera like yours, but perhaps you won;t even find one.

Can I use a Vivitar 2000 safely on a Pentax K100D camera?


NO!
Do not use this flash on your camera without something like this to protect the camera.

Please help. Want to buy a Pentax K7, will these lenses work. Pentax-F Fish-eye 1:3.5-4.5 17-28 TAMRON AF 70-300 1:4-5.6 LD Tele-Macro 1:2 Sigma APO 170-500 1:5-6.3 My exist camera is a Pentax MZ-50


yes they will, I have a 70-300 myself.

As a rule, ANY k-mount lens will work on any of the new pentax cameras to some extent.

At any rate you can shoot some very nice pic with even the oldest lenses. Manually ofcourse.

With an adapter you can even use m42 screw lenses too.

How long should a crv3 battery last?


I use crv3 batteries in my Pentax istD. Believe it or not, they last over a year! Keep in mind that the simple act of testing the voltage of a crv3 will shorten its life. Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Sometimes, an invisible film on the contacts forms and gives a false reading of battery life.

How can I rewind film in a Pentax Zoom 60-X camera


I used to use point and shoot film cameras. My guess is that there is a button underneath which when you depress will automatically rewind the film. Sometimes the button is very small that you may need a ballpen point to press it. Hope this helps cuz i have no idea what the Pentax Zoom looks like. I am guess it is a point an shoot type and not an SLR. If it is a point and shoot type, you must be sure the battery has power or else it won't rewind.

External Flash for 3000Z


I have tried a couple of external flashes on the 3000Z. It is my understanding from reading various Internet posts (and I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong) that, other than triggering the flash to go off, there is no communication between the external flash in the hot shoe of the 3000Z and the 3000Z itself. Settings need to be made manually in the manual mode to set the f-stop and the aperture to get good exposures. The Metz flashes are expensive. Most have opted to use less expensive flashes such as the Vivitar 283/383, or a Sunpak, or even a "Wal-mart" flash. I chose an inexpensive bounce flash with a secondary "fill-in" flash to get rid of the shadows sometimes seen with indoor bounce flash pics. I purchased the Phoenix 82ZBDA Multi-dedicated twin flash from Porter's Photo Catalogue for $37.95. This flash works fine, but is not that powerful (GN 79 ). If you need a more powerful flash, you might consider the Vivitar 383.
