Most of these digital frames are made by a few companies and are most likley sealed. Like Sears they stick on the names of whoever want to sell them. They are made as cheap as possible and don't use the highest quality parts. Plus there are hundreds of variations of models.

Your shutter leavers are getting slow. They will fail soon, most likely the old grease is sticking. You can get a replacement body for $40 as repairs/cleaning will be $80+

Canon... | Answered on Feb 20, 2018

One old camera. You have an electronic shutter and mechanical (backup) so you may have a dead electronic shutter. I would check the battery and contacts. If they are good... the shutter is bad. You have a standard K-mount body, any lenes will fit any Pentax camera, film or digital. The lenses will go on more modern Pentax bodies but will not auto-focus if on an AF body. These bodies are some 25+ years old, many places are selling them for $30 or so.. there are just thousands out there. If you want to stick with film, go for a newer AF body and you can still manually focus.

Pentax Program... | Answered on Feb 20, 2018

Are your battery contacts clean ? ? Can you open the film area and see if the mirror is up ? If the mirror is up, then you have problems. The camera did not go throught it's shutter program and the mirror has not been released to go down. Major repair that is way more expensive then a replacement camera. Same with the battery, something inside is not turning off (completing the shutter function) You can go with film or digital as the Pentax lenses work with both. If you change to Pentax (Ricoh ownes it now) digital, the old film flashes will not work. Need a newer digital Pentax flash for a Pentax digital camera.

Have you removed the batteries for a few hours (reset) ?
Have you turned the dial around several times (clean contacts)
The only other error is the flashing battery light, if it persistes, according to the manual. It's dead as repairs would be pretty expensive against a newer replacement.

This is an ASP film camera. Film is no longer made, there is outdated film available, but there is no guarantee it is good. There are only 2 places that will process the film in the US anymore.
I would get another film camera.

It seems a common error with this film camera. There are parts, but they are replacing the entire shutter at times from the research I have found. That can be an expensive repair against the cost of a different camera. Rangefinder used to be extreamly reliable, it seems this model had production problems.

Konica Hexar RF... | Answered on Feb 20, 2018

The Hexar RF is a very expensive film camera with an electronic shutter. Make sure the battery and contacts are clean. Remove the batteries and see if that resets the camera. If not, it is time for professional repair. This camera takes high quality Hexar lenses in a KM mount. This is not an old camera, so repair should be easy.

First, where are you going to get APS film ? It is not longer made. So dump the camera. Processing is only from 2 companies anymore.

The older memory frames could only read a few MEGS of memory sticks, not Gig. That could be a problem, these were made cheap so the latest and greatest parts were not used. Plus newer cameras are 4 mb per image rather then the 600K of older cellphones/cameras. That may be a problem too.
You can reduce the SIZE of the image to 800x600 rather then the 3K or 4K many cameras now take. There is a free program called PhotoFiltre (French company) that is very easy to use, free (no spyware) and only a few megs in size.
Install program, go to FILE OPEN, get image on stick, choose IMAGE - SIZE and erase the width, type in 800 click OK and it will adjust the height automatically. Then choose SAVE. Your file will be smaller but you will not notice it on an 8" screen. Do this with the rest, you will then have lots of room for more. WARNING.. do this with COPIES as you cannot "re-enlarge" them ! ! And as I have said since the 90's, alwasy have 2 backup copies in separate places. Those external drive are cheap insurance.
