Question about Ricoh KR-30SP 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Lens After 20 years, I have decided to upgrade my lens. I was wanting to go to a 70-200, but have found out that I have a dinosaur camera. Am being told I will not be able to find a lens to fit. Currently I have a Sigma 28-84 on this camera. I am not sure what to look for on the internet because I am unsure of what kind of mount fits this camera. I love my old manual, but my twins are playing football and basketball and I need a lens with more distance. Would also like to find a power grip for it too as the old one gave out several years ago. Where do I start?? Thanks, Cheryl

You didn't state whatbrand of camera you have. Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Minolta all make digital cameras that take their old lenses. In the case of Minolta, Sony took over the production. The only things that may not work are the old flashes. The new digital cameras may need upgraded models of the flashes. Never use an old flash on a newer digital model without checking if it could damage the camera. You need not buy a 12 mega pixel to print 4X6 prints. Their older and less expensive models will work just fine.

E16 error code


Following information is not mine but from another site. This is a cut and paste since i didn't want to give you the bad news. Now the news;

I e-mailed Canon tech support, and received a suggestion to remove, wait for 20 minutes, then reinstall the batteries. I confirmed that they were fully charged, and restarted the camera. The lens extended, but the LCD display is sometimes shot through with horizontal lines resembling static, which are recorded in photos taken afterwards (examples attached.). The camera now starts up randomly, and the lines come and go randomly. The only offer Canon has made after this was to offer an "upgrade" to a refurbished S2 IS for $299. That's about the price of a new one online! I have decided not to buy any Canon digital camera again. I would, however, like to try to get this one running with a degree of reliability. user_offline.gif quote.gif Canon S1 won turn on E16 error HELP Canon Digital Photography Forums
This is all the info i found. Hope this helps. also sorry about the camera.

I have the same problem and found someone on Amazon with this suggestion... "What I discovered is that the mechanical lens zoom assembly is binding and the lens zoom was not stopping where the software expected it to. A slight twist of the lens assembly would unfreeze the camera."

I twisted my lens assembly when this happened, and it worked. I was able to continue to zoom and take a picture. It's still not ideal and I want it fixed, but it works temporarily.

My JVC camera is less than an year old and the lens shutter will not open


The lens cover mechanism in these cameras is susceptible to debris and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

The lens needs replaced (usually very expensive). You want to try it yourself? First, Google the words...disassemble a digital camera. Then decide if you want to tackle the problem.

When I turn my camera on, it will than read: "lens error, restart camera."


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SYSTEM ERROR


dont know about the reset button, but i had the same system error message with my camera, which has been in a drawer for 3 years since i got the message. just found it tonight, was researching it and apparently coolpix lenses tend to stick, found some references to other models(not sq). i decide to try taling it apart to have a go at the lens, but tried the easier and more satisfying turning it on and off 6 or 7 times while banging on the body beside the lens, which seems to have worked. systems error gone , camera turns on, i've taken 20 or so pics, no probs so far.

System error


My camera has been sitting in a drawer since 2005, found it tonight and decided to try take it apart to see if the lens was stuck ( apparently this is a problem with nikon coolpix), but before i did ( couldn't find screwdriver) decided to try gentle brute force. i turned it on and off 6 or 7 times while banging on the body beside the lens (to the left if looking at the screen) and it seems to have worked. Systems Error message has gone and i've taken 20 or so pics. i was actually looking here for a solution earlier today, so here you go guys
