Question about Pentax K100D Digital Camera

No pic framing on LCD display - playback is OK

My Pentax K100D LCD display will not frame a picture. I am forced to use the viewfinder instead. The picture is taken and the Instant Review will display the picture on the LCD display. Playback of past pictures works fine. I know the picture framing on the LCD used to work b/c I don't like using the viewfinder unless I'm outside in bright sun.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

This feature is called "Live View" and the K100D does not have it.

If you want this feature, you have to buy one of the more recent digital SLRs such as the Pentax K20D (NOTE: I don't think the K200D has this feature) or the newest Canon Digital Rebel, whatever model its up to.

Or . . .

You can simply take lots and lost of pictures and hope that one turns out that you are happy with.

That's what the old professionals used to do with their film cameras and no digital preview (before or after)! <grin>

Take care & Happy Imaging!

Picture is not displaying on sony dsc-hx1


Talking about two camera's my guess is you made a picture with a Pentax K100D and you put it on the memory card in a Sony dsc-hx1.
In the manual the Sony tells what sizes of pictures it can display. None of the 4 sizes the Pentax K100D makes, is in that list.
Perhaps you don't mean this, please let me know.

Why can't i see what i am taking a picture of by the lcd screen?


That feature is called "Live View". The K100D camera does not support that feature.

More specification information can be found here

I was just wondering if you can take a photo useing the lcd screen on the pentax k100d


No... that camera (same as mine) does not have that feature.
Practice viewing the picture as soon as you take it. You'll get used to it.

If you want to "test" the shot and not save the pic, then instead of pressing the shutter switch, move the on/off switch past the "ON" position (it is spring-loaded and will return to the "ON" position).

Camera takes pictures but display doesn't work.


Look for the little button that looks like a TV. It switches from screen to viewfinder.

Playback in viewfinder is flashing and only in top of frame


It is possible that your camera LCD is defective. Have you checked if you transfer the pictures on your computer if it looks ok?

Pentax K100D does not have Live View function. So you can't preview the image before taking the image.

The interface IC ( between the main CPU and the CCD sensor ) seems faulty . Camera should go to the Pentax agents unfortunately.
