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 .

My Kodak does the same way the kids got there sticky fingers on it.

I would suggest trying to clean it with some 98-99% Isopropyl Alcohol since the alcohol evaporates completely. Make sure to remove the batteries before doing it. Also use some compressed air to try to dislodge any dirt, dust, or debris that may be stopping the movement.

If it still doesn't close once you've cleaned it then there may be something physicaly wrong or broken inside the camera. You can attempt dissasembly but it could be quite fragile and tricky to take apart and even more so to put back together.

Otherwise, always keep a good clean micro-fiber cleaning cloth with you and clean the lens frequently.

The camera has a faulty capacitor inside the circuit board. Having it repaired generally cost more than purchasing a replacement camera. Capacitors store the power needed to operate motor drives when needed. If they get a hairline crack on the outer shell they will lose there ability to operate correctly such as yours is doing

SOURCE: U7 error code when Pentax Espio 200 camera

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

I was given a 35mm pentax espio 70 zoom camera recently but I have no instruction leaflet with it. Is it possible still to get one.


Most documentation is available online. Use the search engine of your choosing to look for:
Camera manufacturer + model + manual
I believe you can find it here:

Camera suddenly stopped responding, maked grating noise and shows HI in window. wil not turn off.


If the 'H' disappears when the zoom lever is moved the camera is ready for use. If the 'H' appears often, it should be taken to the service.

On the lcd it shows "E" "E 9" and I do not know what this means and the camera will not work. What needs to be done


This question has been answered repeatedly. Pentax error codes are mostly for camera repair technician diagnosis and most of the time mean the camera is broken and needs professional servicing. Some Pentax Error Codes:
E: "E" often indicates a film jam. This code can appear when the film is inserted incorrectly, when the batteries are changed in the middle of a roll of film, if you are using defective film, etc. If "E" appears in your camera's information display, try to rewind your film manually (see your user's guide for instructions on how to activate your mid-roll rewind function), and try a different roll. If this problem keeps occurring, you might need to send the camera to us for repair.
E3, E7, E37: These codes often signal a problem with your shutter mechanism.
E9, E93-E97: These codes may indicate a problem with your zoom lens.
H0-H9: These H codes can also identify a problem with your camera's shutter.
U1-U9: These U codes may also indicate a problem with your camera's zoom lens.

These codes are standard for both Digital and film cameras.

Please rate our helpfulness to keep the service viable++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.

Pentax espio 140


subaru662,
can you see the lens in the finder move when you zoom out? if not ,the finder lens is stuck.
if it does move when zooming, see if you have a diopter adjustment wheel or sliding knob near the front lens of the finder. if so adjust the lens to your eye.
