Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera

1 Answer

I tripped and fell full-out (200 pounds) on top of my Pentax *ist D camera that was hanging from my neck. The impact broke my rib. Guess what? The camera won't work. Nothing visibly wrong but when turned on it flashes an empty battery symbol. I will happily offer payment after someone tells me they know what to do about this!

It's hard to tell what is the problem without a closer inspection.
It could be that some connection came loose. If it's like that, then you should bring it to a specialist. To a guarantee if it hasn't expired yet.

Before doing that remove your battery. Put it back in, try to charge it. Is it charging then?

Pentax ist d - fresh batteries, no display, nothing. Where to start troubleshooting?


Measure batteries to make sure they are 'fresh' I have run into many bad 'new' batteries. And if they are the same brand people sometimes put the old ones back in by mistake.

Other than that without a lot more information there are just far too many things that could cause this problem - from impact to water damage to circuit failure.

Hello I have Pentax IST DL just took out of case put new batteries in did not work battery light came on. Tried again came on but did not take photo. Then turned of again, tried lots of new battery. ...


The early ist cameras had a battery indicator problem which Pentax never addressed. Most owners learned to live with it by turning it off and on several times until it showed full power.

My Pentax *ist* ds doesn't power on half the time!


Check the battery contacts in the camera. Perhaps they are dirty and need a clean. Make sure you're not using Alkaline battereis and if you use rechargeables they are fully recharged and not getting too old to hold a full charge. Apart from that, without further information I can't help any more. BMW

I guess You should wait for a firmware update - and do not format the card in the camera until then. I think it won't take long.
