    Same problem ie. tried to zoom. Once zoom went to maximum extension, a 'HI' message appeared, and cannot switch off or retract. Remove/replaciing battery doesnt help.

May be a bit of grit gas got in. Do not try to manually manipulate it- this will wreck the motor drive. A Vacuum clean suck way have some affect. Certainly contact Pentax Tech Support Team .

Digital zoom error on an A600, lenz will not retract either


Have you tried spraying a can of compressed air into the lens assembly? All it takes is small piece of debris like a grain of sand to jam up the assembly.

Hope this helps

How much is a Pentax esp10-140 worth?


I found the ESPIO-140M selling for as little as $30, and I found an ESPIO-140V in excellent used condition selling for $150. I also noted a 140V that failed to sell for $55 on eBay. I hope this information helps.

Here's a link to the high priced V model:

U7 error code when Pentax Espio 200 camera switched on. What does it mean? Can I rewind and remove film to develop?


Its actually a technician code which means that your Zoom system has malfunctioned. If you want to remove the film then you can simply click the reset button and then remove the film. If you want to get it repaired then it would be better if you throw it and look for a new SLR Camera

My pentax option A10 turned black on the screen and won't open


Since the screen went black BEFORE the lens retracted, it makes me think this is a main board problem. The only other possibility is that it is the lens assembly, but since it went black BEFORE the lens retracted, I don't think that is it. I can replace the main board for $40, or you can send it to pentax in Arizona, and they will do it for about $90.
The main board is NOT something that I would suggest anyone try to replace as a DIY project. There are too many small screws, and delicate connections to deal with.
You can contact me at: mrfixitmark at comast dot net

If you just want to sell the camera as-is, I also buy all pentax a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras, in any condition.

Lens won't retract


You could try to gently pull the lens straight. If it's leaning to the right then pull the lens to the left. Don't use brute force but it's possible to realign the lens this way. If it works you'll hear a click and the lens will look straight. Switch on and see if it retracts. I'd only use this as a last resort because you can cause additional damage if it's overdone. It has sood success rate also

Shutter permanently open and zoomed. will not close in even without battery. tried new batteries, no change


It needs factory repair - find another used camera or buy a new digital. That camera is not worth spending the money on to repair.
