Question about Pentax IQZoom 130M 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

I'm getting an HE 25 error.

When I try to take a picture, the camera will not take the picture, but is only flashing back and forth between "HE" and "25." Is this an error code? What can I do to fix the problem?

Canon prima flashing E


First reaction, when your camera acts strange, is to switch it off. Then when the memory access light stops burning, or flashing, you can remove the battery (Batteries) Give it a few seconds, and then reinsert the battery. Now the camera will start from scratch. So if the problem was caused by a software problem, it should be solved.
Only when after switching on, the error reoccurs, you have a bigger problem, that perhaps only can be solved in a photo store, or at the service centre, closest to you.

How do i use the mode setting to insure quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions


Something we have all been wrestling with over the years, LOL.
quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions ? I suggest using the flash as often as you can in those conditions, and get yourself a tripod.
When the skies turn grey, there's less light, so the camera keeps the shutter open longer, which means more likelihood of a blurred image due 2 camera movement. Flash use speeds up the shutter, but will use more battery power. Another issue: with 100 ASA film, the flash is only good for about 12 feet. Distance improves with higher ASA film, but quality suffers due to film grain.

Hi,

For the price of the repair from a camera shop, it would be cheaper to buy a new camera,

This camera is less that £100, so to get the problem looked at by a shop would cost more than it is worth,
This would be a false economy. and it could faulter again in 3 weeks time.

You could take the camera to a shop and they would be able to get the pictures off for you, for a fee.

Spending £50 to get the pic's back, seems sensible to me.

But to spend another £50 to £100 to get the camera repaired, in my eyes is wasting money.

You might aswel get the pictures off the camera, and buy a new camera.

This is the best solution, from my point of view.

Hope this helps you decide
Regards
Richard.

Won't take picture though I replaced battery.


Even though it was cushioned somewhat the camera took enough damage to jam something. The flashing symbols are a generic error code it could mean the shutter, zoom, film transport, flash, or some combination of these system are not working (sorry but without tearing the camera apart I can't narrow the problem any further)

Camera goes into Shut Down Mode & Flashes the Letter H


Hey sonax,
This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

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.

U4--what does this mean?


U1-U9: these are technician codes indicating that there is a malfunction in the zoom mechanism of your camera, most likely electronic in nature - a defective IC chip and/or bad circuit board. Repair cost would easily exceed the value of the camera. You should be aware that, just as with today's small digital cameras, both mechanics and electronics of smaller point-and-shoot 35mm cameras consist for the most part of light-duty plastic and fragile electronics. If they last a couple of years they're doing well.
