Dear friend, take your lens off, turn your camera to M for manual, rotate the main comand dial till you see the word BULB, press down the shutter button and keep holding it down, use a hand puffer, not canned air and gently puff some air into the camera. Very important, the lens opening must be facing down so any little debris will fall directly out. Let go of the shutter button when finished and replace the lens, repete if needed. You can buy those little hand blowers or puffers at any camera store. Hope that helps, Barry fossils@rapidnet.com

Yes, with limitations. The lenses will fit on any Pentax (now Ricoh) digital SLR. You may lose autofocus and/or auto exposure metering.

No picture in the view finder it's just black.


After you took a picture you have to press the > button, to view the picture. I can't find any setting so the camera will show each picture after you took it.
There is a short version of the manual online.

I have a pentax slr film camera and i want to know ii the lens will work on a Nikon dlsr digital camera


No. Nikon has been using the same lens mount since about 1959. Pentax has changed their mount once since then, but not to the same thing.

Overexposed photos??


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes to the viewfinder and you can compose the picture. When you press the shutter release, the mirror comes up, and light goes to the sensor. In a film SLR, there was a shutter just in front of the film that controlled the amount of light that hit the film. In your D80, it's a combination of the mirror and the electronics that set "shutter speed".

What is happening when you get these white pictures is that somehow your settings are holding the mirror open far longer than it should be open. When you turn off the camera, it drops the mirror automatically. If you are in S or M, it's because you've set your shutter speed improperly. If it's doing this in Auto mode, then there may be a problem with the exposure meter or the lens.

If you describe more about when it happens (shutter speed settings, Auto or manual mode) I can probably tell you if it's your settings or the camera/lens.

THE PICTURE WHEN I SHOOT DONT APPER IN THE SCREEN BACK CAMERAL THAR I PURCHASE AND RECEIVE TODAY WHEN I WAT TO SEE PIC BEFAORE TAKE A PHOTO I CAN T SEE THE REAL PIC IN THE SCREEN BEFORE TAKE PICTURE WHATS...


The Pentax 200d does not preview the picture on the LCD. You compose the picture in the view finder. After the picture is taken you can look at the picture only when you push the bottom left hand button. I would contact Pentax Inc. USA at 600 12th. St., Golden, Colorado 80401, for a French manual or info on how to get one.

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.

No view through view finder or screen but it records just black


If this a digital SLR- the shutter mirror is locked up. This happens in regular film cameras too. You might be able to fix it by simply removing the lens and putting it back on. Otherwise just take it to the nearest camera store (one that only sells cameras) and they may be able to fix it for you. No more info is available until I know the make and model of your camera.

Can't get image in viewfinder


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations.

Pentax K100D DSLR


The interface IC ( between the main CPU and the CCD sensor ) seems faulty . Camera should go to the Pentax agents unfortunately.
