Question about Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera

1 Answer

Same as mentioned by others

Does this camera need a recall? These cost alot of money. Two years of use is terrible for the kind of money I spent for this camera. New batteries flash as not registering. Can`t use this camera ever!

Unfortunately they can't be held responsible for the past money you have put into it. If they recalled and fixed the recall, their job is done. If that was the case,we wouldn't need parts stores cause everyone would be suing the auto

because the same sort of thing happens right across the board they are all making the machines with cheap parts not only should there be alot more recalls but the whole industry needs a big kick up the bum about the quality of the products its bad for the enviroment repairers charge so much to fix em its not worth so we buy a new one and we know who wins there then your old one gets dumped into the enviroment years before it should of.

My JVC hard disk camcorder tells me the lens cap is still on and it is not..! HELP. Is this worth fixing?? I spent alot of money on this 3 yrs ago. Where should i take it for repair. Best Buy wants 35.00...

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on .

I have had my 2001 x5 in the shop for a service engine light . First they replaced the thermostat, then the oxygen sensors now they are telling me both catalytic converters are bad. The vehicle has just...

Not enough info, but go to another garage and do not tell them what the other shop said.

The only thing that could usually make both converters fail at the same time would be if they were exposed to something bad, like antifreeze from a bad head gasket, burning oil, or some kind of fuel additive that harms converters and O2 Sensors..

It sounds like the bulb just simply burnt out. Before I spent any money on the camera, I would first reset the camera back to factory settings and try again. The cost of replacing the bulb might be more that the cost of a new camera!
