Be warned the likely cost of repair will be nearly as much as simply replacing the camera

My lens will not focus. Pictures are all coming out blurry no matter what setting I have the camera on, and no matter how much I zoom in or nout.


Hi

You know sometimes the lens will not focus if you have a physical damage etc., first of all i would like to clarify some points.

1. Did you place your camera near to a strong magnetic area?
2. Did you drop the camera?
3. Did you use Zoom in Zoom-out continuously at the same time?

for the first point i am sure it was exposed to strong Magnetic field, as and when it is exposed the coil of the zoom lens which move the lens in and out will get out of place and makes it impossible to maintain focus. If so then better is to open the camera and re-adjust the lens. But if you are confident to put it back then open it or try to slowly wiggle the camera and check if it gets better.

I dropped my pentax k1000 and the lens is stuck. wont focus, wont move at all. do i need to buy a new one and if so, how much/what kind am i looking for?


While turning the camera on, or zooming gently push and pull the lens to get it unstuck. If you have to buy a new one it will cost you $75 here.

Fuji a500 give "focus error" message and won't shoot pictures


I am sorry to say that this design of lens is the worst i've seen from Fuji.
Focus error relates to the mechanism right at the front of the lens. The motor and drive gear are in the end piece of the lens, as opposed to other cameras that have the focus mechanism in the back of the lens and is easily access able once inside the camera.
Does the lens stick? or buzz on power up? If you tap gently, with your finger nail, on the actual lens on power up ( you may have to do this several times) you may find the lens comes out ok and no error msg is displayed (until you try zooming).This will probably be because something is jamming the gears or the tiny tension spring used on the gears has come off. I have tried to clear several A500's with this problem with limited success.

Pentax *ist DS digital SLR Autofocus problem


Being an SLR camera, you should try another lens. It may be a servo fault in the lens. If the lens is okay, then it can be anything in the lens sensing, lens control drive circuits, and or lens to camera interface area. This would have to be properly diagnosed and serviced.

Optio M20 Stuck on Zoom in and out!


you have a timing problem,the gears for your housing is out of calibration with your focus lens inside of the housing. you must take the camera apart to correct the problem.there is a flywheel type of ajustment in the top of the camera that can be turned to bring the camera back to its reset position. it is bad to keep turning on the camera as this may danage the gear that is out of time.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!
Glen

Focusing wont work after dropping


probably the lens inside is damaged or the mechanism which moves the lens is damaged. Focus works with a moving mechanism which moves the lens back and forth.

Lens Jammed


Is looks like a problem with the zooming mechanism. Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
