AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached

My sister in law bought my Pentax ist Dl from me and can't get the Quantaray zoom lens to work when it is attached to the body.  The camera is flashing AV in the "lcd" area when I attach my Quantaray zoom lens to my Pentax ist DL.  It doesn't want to take pictures/work.  I have never had this problem when attaching the zoom before....which I had the lens for 3 years.  The camera works just fine with the standard lens that came with it when it is attached.  I don't know why it is doing this all of a sudden....am I missing something?  I would help her but I am 2 states away from her & need to physically holding the camera to see what she might be doing wrong.  Any pros out there that can help me out with this AV flashing????

I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Re-attach the lens and make sure the ring (if you have one) is set to "A".

The problem is with waking a sleeping Pentax ist dl: touching the shutter button doesn't reawaken it. To enable the ist dl to shoot requires turning off the camera and of course switching it on again.


This is a common problem with all the ist's. Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Use "exposure compensation" (the button with a plus/minus symbol). It allows you to lighten (toward the + side) or darken (toward the - side).

Does a Quantaray Tech-10 75-300 lens fit a Pentax *ist DL digital camera?


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Pentax mount then it will fit onto your camera. If it has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not.

Pentax Ist DL auto focus not working anymore after using Quantaray AF LD 70-300MM Lens


It seems to be a connection issue between the Lens and the Camera body. Perhaps the mount is not true to the body Ask Pentax about this their Technical Support Team

Flash on ist DL


Looks like its true... Another major disadvantage. Removing TTL means removing one more hardware piece - TTL sensor. Pentax removed almost every nice feature, which needs some aditional or more expensive hardware: no TTL flash, less AF points, pentamirror... Seems like I bought Ds right in time.
