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.

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

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.

Also check that your diaphragm ring on the Zoom lens is set to the "A" position.

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

Unable to use SD card higher than 2 GB capacity


If you're using a card larger than 2GB then it's an SDHC card, not an SD card. The *ist DL works with SD cards, which top out at 2GB. Even though higher-capacity SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work with this camera.

I have a trouble with my digital camera. When I put a lens on the camera I cannot get the shutter to open. I am using some older lens that I had for my manual pentax. Could this be the problem. When I have...


Hi Noodle
One of Pentax's strengths is that that you can use lenses from the late 1960s on them (via an adaptor). However, I'm assuming that you have a bayonet fitting lens - but as you say 'my manual pentax' could it be that they are not autofocus lenses?
If autofocus is switched on and you have a manual focus lens, you have to have something in focus in order for the shutter to fire. (with no lens fitted it doesn't seem to matter). Switch the camera to manual focus (where you can shoot out-of-focus stuff) and see if the problem is still there.
If it is then it spounds as though there is something amiss with the camera to lens coupling.

Check your lens there is often a AF/MF auto/manual focus switch

Other than that it could be a problem with the camera take it to your dealer

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.
