Question about Cameras
When I press the on/off button the screen lights uo and displays PENTAX, the lens zooms out but it gets to the end of it's travel and it sounds like a safety device is preventing damage by slipping the gears for a second then it zooms in again and shuts down. It seem like whatever limits lens travel is not set correctly. I've had a look inside but I cant see any stripped gears or broken/loose parts. Has anybody else experience of this ? I have the same problem, when I turn on my pentax 57 optic the lens extends but it beeps and then retracts and shuts off. Any solution pls.!!!
Hi drdaved It seems to be a battery cotact problem. The battery contact pins might have some rust. Try to clean them with a rubber and alcohol (after the rubber)
