Re: eats batteries like thers no end !
Hello davidpritchie, As I recall, this was Pentax's way of mating electronics with mechanical cameras and the success rate was quite good. The only problem with the Pentax Super Program was the rather complex electronic circuit board. Your canera could have a short, bad condensers, bad on-off switch, etc. You would need to do a circuit check from batteries to every electronic component using battery power. Wow - really expensive and time-consuming = complete stripdown and repair. The camera is over approximately 30 years old making it a classic. It is no longer in production meaning parts need to be cannabalized from another old non-working Pentax Super Program. The cost of repair would exceed the value of the camera. Look for another good used model or move on to a Pentax DSLR (digital SLR) camera as your tool. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer on how to fix your problem.

Hi, Juan I would love to help you but the batteries in my crystal ball are dead and my mental telepathy headset is broken so sorry, I need the year, make, and model of your motorcycle please ask your question again and provide this information in the details box or comment section or edit your original question. Good luck and have a nice day.
Simple Test - Look at the IR emitter thru your Cell phone camera.
Just about everyone these days has a Cell phone equipped with a camera. If you just cant get your TV, projector, or whatever to listen to your Remote, do a simple test to know - is it really sending a signal to my gear? Ever wonder if the batteries are dead? Or maybe a button is stuck ON and draining your batteries down overnight.
Turn on your cell phone camera, simply peer at the IR eye at the very end of the remote thru the LCD screen of your camera and press any button on the Remote. You should see a light flash with each button press that you simply cannot see with the naked eye. Dont see anything? Change your batteries. Yes, it will also work with a digital camera.
Give it a try next time your Remote makes you frustrated.
If you have a fuel sensor check that out. Could need replacing. Also when was the last time you changed the air cleaner filter. A dirty air filter will cause that as well as it can't breath properly. Just some ideas.
If the alternator is charging the battery, and it goes dead overnight, you have a short to ground in the wiring that is draining the battery. You can try disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the battery stays charged when the engine is off. If it still goes dead, the battery could have a dead cell.
test battery for dead cell, even new batteries are bad sometimes.if u don't have a load tester take to autoparts store they will check for u. with car running test voltage from alternator should be 13 or more volts . next test starter solenoid if stuck she will drain overnight.
Get the battery checked out, even if it is new. I found out this on mine after I replaced the alternator and the battery was fully charged. After it had run a while it would not start back up, Got it tested at an interstate battery shop and they said it was borderline on the load machine, but the digital $$$ machine said replace battery. Good thing it was still under warranty , free replacement. Been driving ever since then no problems.
Hi - i had the same problem, just fixed it
see this link
i just ended up pulling the lens (please do read the disclaimer section on this website before taking any action)
i was a bit scared as after i did it it wouldnt focus and came up with the same error but i just kept switching it on and off and it seems ok now - i think its a technical IT term... reboot!
hope this helps!
Try running the battery down completely (0% so it turns off itself), and charging whilst the phone is completely off (I'd suggest leaving it overnight). Repeat this once or twice, then see if your battery life has improved. Also ensure that you havent left anything on that could be eating your battery up i.e. bluetooth, and contact your supplier if the problem persists, as you should be covered.
