New Pentax K200D -- the beep does not sound

Just purchased a new Pentax K200D. The camera is adjusted per all of the instructions in the manual. However, even though the in-focus symbol shows in the viewfinder, the thing does not BEEP! Why it will not beep is driving me nuts!! Takes good pictures, though.

What the heck am I doing wrong?

    The settings are on. There is no l.e.d. light for the speaker, no reference in any manual to the fact that the camera contains a speaker??

  • dmaize Jan 02, 2009

    This clip provides no more help than the manual. It is SET to BEEP! When it focuses, it finds its center point, then a white rectangle appears in the viewfinder. The pictures are fine, just no green lights, or beep, or, or, or. I have contacted the dealer, but this just makes no sense at all.

  • dmaize Jan 03, 2009

    Still no luck. This is a stupid question, but when the rectangle in the Pentax K200D illuminates, it is white. Anyone with one of these monsters--should this be white or green?

    Thanks

  • dmaize Jan 03, 2009

    Nope. It is totally "beepless"!

  • dmaize Jan 03, 2009

    The problem is SOLVED!! I had tried everything I could think of, then on a chance, was messing with the dioptic adjustment and lo and behold, depending on where I set it to, the beep sounds! I have no idea what one has to do with the other, but the beeper is back in business.

    Thanks to all.

There should be a speaker on/off light that comes on when the speaker is on. Go to settings menu and choose format turn on the speaker there if the L.E.D. light does not turn on then you will have to get the camera checked at a repair shop.

You need to set the beep as preference using the camera setting menu.

The whole operation is descripted on service manual, I think you must access the setting menu to manage the beep on and off.

    There is a speaker ON/OFF setting that you need to check. You find - format,beep , date adjust, language, guide display options under setup menu.

    If this does not fix it, then there may be an internal fault, in this case take the camera to the shop and have it checked.

How do I use my old manual lense with a K200D?


Move the automatic/manual focus switch (on the lower right of the lens mount as you look into the lens) to manual. Focus manually by turning the focus adjustment on the lens itself - align the split image as you would with your old camera and take the picture.
(Use a handheld light meter and set the f/stop and shutter speed appropriately - the K200D doesn't have a visible meter. I would recommend bracketing your exposures -up a stop and down a stop from the 'appropriate' stop.)

I've purchased a second hand asanuma autozoom 70-220 which fits ok but wont take a picture and has an "F" on the screen. I have a new Pentax k2000DSLR


Assuming that you have an Asanuma lens with a Pentax K-mount, does it have an A setting on the aperture scale?
- If it does, you will have to adjust the exposure with the thumbwheel and perhaps the Av button pressed.
- If it does not, then you have to go into the menus [custom setting] and set [uses aperture ring] to [Permitted] and then play with Manual mode.

If you have a screw-mount lens and an adapter, the procedure gets more complicated - and if the lens does not have an Auto/Manual switch then you are stuck with full aperture.

Pentax k200d BATTERY PROBLEM


The battery charge indicator is temperature sensitive. If you switch off and on again, do you still get the low battery warning? Have you tried with a second set of batteries - either rechargeable, or lithium or alkaline. I would do this in a warm room, and try it with new alkaline cells. You lose some of the functions, but if the indicator say charged, and you can take a shot, then the body is OK.
Call me old-fashioned, but I use a multimeter on all NEW batteries to make sure they are functional - I bought a card of cheap LR44s and the first three were either dead or low on voltage.

Washed out pictures using a Bower 724 AFPX flash


This is probably not the camera settings. Pentax k200D wilt only give auto-flash with just three of their own units. Sounds like you have the Bower set on Auto. Set the flash to Manual, and adjust exposure on the aperture setting with the body set to manual as well.
Note that several people have reported problems with Bower units on digital cameras (and not just on Pentax)

Camera will not accept the new batteries.


I called pentax and they told me only use Energizer batteries. I did not think it would make a differance but the "cheap" batteries do not deliver steady power even that there new the power flux is enough to throw these new cameras off. there that sinistive. Energizer's deliver a very even power and that is the only battery that pentax recamends. All outhers even dualcell delivers uneven power and that will cause the camera to think the batteries are dead.
