I just bought a K100D and experienced a similar problem when trying to use it with alkaline AA cells (checked battery voltage, not particularly low - 1.49 v.). I switched to lithium CR-V3 battery packs and it now shows full charge and seems to work reliably. This reflects recommendations in the user's manual.

Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol.

2008 electra glide battery draw, test light pulses, now bike wont crank over


The pulsing could be the alarm module. When bike is turned of, you will get small draw for a minute or so and then it should go very low, below a miliamp or so. This is the alarm module setting itself. Check for this. Is battery gone flat while checks were being made? Make sure ignition switch is on when disconnecting battery if alarm (Stock HD) is fitted. If not, alarm module gets confused and can cause problems. The corrct procedure for disconnecting a battery from an alarm fitted HS is - alarm off, ignition switch on, pull main fuse (Maxi Fuse), disconnect battery. To fit, ignition stitch off, connect battery then install main fuse.

K100d wont format memory card


Make sure your new memory card is an SD card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, an SDHC card will not work in devices designed only for SD cards.

I have Pentax 100D and using Ni-MH battery. But battery is going empty very quickly after few photos


Sounds like, due to age, the batteries aren't able to hold their charge well anymore. I'd suggest picking up a new set of Ni-MH batteries.

I have just fitted new battery to my pride sonic but will only move very slowly even at maximum speed adjustment


Hi. Did you fit one battery or two new ones. It never pays to fit only one battery.
Have you checked for a high/low switch, sometimes called indoor/outdoor switch.
Check motor and battery connectors.
Check motor current ( amps ) with an amp meter to see if the motor is faulty.
Check brake unit is not causing drag on the machine.
Good luck. Neil.

Camera locked


Put in new batteries. If you're using rechargeable batteries, they already have a lower voltage than regular batteries. If you don't have enough milliamps in the battery, it will show as low, no matter what the voltage is.

Pentax K100D will not power up


First make sure you are using fresh lithium batteries. These cameras indicate low batteries quite early on. Rechargeables even when freshly charged are marginal.

If the problem persists remove the batteries. Set the camera switch to the off position. Set the focus switch to manual. Wait at least a minute. Then replace the batteries and switch on again.

Operating with low batteries can confuse the firmware and it may be stuck in a low-battery loop. If this is the case this should reset the camera by allowing the electronics to power-down completely.

If this does not work you wiil have to contact pentax support.
