Question about Pentax IQZoom 928 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

2 Answers

Flashing HI Until a few months ago my 928's given great pics. Then, midway thru a roll, HI starts flashing. Results: on/off switch, zoom [seems stuck] nothing works but HI keeps flashing. Read in manual that it could mean a major defect. Need to know before I take it in for repair. Also, how do I get the roll out safely to try and save the exposed film? Thank you.

    Removed the battery, then put it back in, and display changed from
    "Hi" to "1".
    But, I'd already taken about 8 pictures on a roll of 24.
    So, now, if I try to get the shoot any more pictures, I'm afraid that I'll
    double expose and ruin the pictures that I've already taken.
    How do I advance the film to the end, so I can remove it from the
    camera, and save the pictures I've already taken?

First, remove, the battery, and then reinstall it.
This will change the "Hi" to "0" temporarily.
Then do the following:

How to safely unload a partially exposed roll:
Follow the procedure described on page 21 of
your operating manual.
1. Turn the main switch ON, and hold down the drive button for more than 3 seconds. A roll rewind symbol appears, and a dot
starts blinking on the LCD panel, indicating that the mid-roll film rewinding mode has been set.
2. While depressing the drive mode button, depress the shutter release button. Film rewinding starts. When a roll of film is rewound to its end, the motor stops, and "O" blinks, indicating that the back cover may be opened safely.

By doing this, I was able to save my partially exposed roll.
However, the camera still needs to be repaired.

There is a flexible ribbon cable carrying signals from camera body to the lense assembly. Due to regular use it gets worn out, thus it gets broken and is not able to perform the task for which the camera has given the signal. in your camera also the same flex cable is broken. Get it changed at some good repairer

When i move the mouse, the screen keeps zooming in. how do i stop it from zooming in?

Hi youngman kri,
Do you have a mouse with a scroll wheel on top? That might be the problem, it might be locked into a midway position. Use a very tiny quantity, about a drop, of a safe body moisturizer, put the tiny drop on the wheel and roll it around a few times to evenly spread the oil. See if it works after that.

You may have it turned off. Find the button with the lightning bolt and press it while watching the screen. Press until you get the lightning bolt with an "A" beside it.

Cannon G7 need help

Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?

1996 honda civic lx passanger power window problem

I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!

I was informed that if you take your battery out while it was on then it will work when you put in back in after a few minutes. I Just tried it like 2 min. ago and they were right.

Blury Display on FE140

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
