Pentax IQZoom 160

The word HI is blinking and the camera is frozen with the zoom out and the flash out. Tried taking batteries out and turning off, but it does not respond. What's the problem?

    I have the same problem with the word HI blinking and camera is frozen. Taking battery out and replacing does not solve problem.Automatically rewinding the film and removing it will unfreeze the camera but you will loose any photos that were on the roll of film. I cannot find my owners manual to see if this problem is addressed.

SOURCE: Pentax K100D will not power up

First make sure you are using fresh lithium batteries. These cameras indicate low batteries quite early on. Rechargeables even when freshly charged are marginal.

If the problem persists remove the batteries. Set the camera switch to the off position. Set the focus switch to manual. Wait at least a minute. Then replace the batteries and switch on again.

Operating with low batteries can confuse the firmware and it may be stuck in a low-battery loop. If this is the case this should reset the camera by allowing the electronics to power-down completely.

If this does not work you wiil have to contact pentax support.

SOURCE: AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached

I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

Dead battery- won't take a charge- it just blinks amber.Do I need a new battery for my Samsung 5x?


Sounds indeed like the battery is dead. You could try checking it with a volt meter. If the volt meter says it is fully charged then you have a problem with the camera instead

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Jacob

I have acquired a Pentax IQZoom 700 as a gift. I'm not sure what kind of batteries it takes though, as it did not come with a manual. Can anyone help me?


The IQ-Zoom 700 uses two 3V Lithium batteries (CR-123A or DL-123A). You can order a new manual for $8 from Pentax: http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/ . Use the drop down menus to select your model.

I hope this helps.

Zoom--mm blinking and can't change mode


Your zoom motor is probably stuck. Remove the two screws on the front side of the tiltable head. Pry off the two tilt caps using a small flat head screwdriver (they are glued on). Remove the 4 screws found under each cap. Now you can separate the two sides of the head and take out the two lenses (remember exactly how the lenses were positioned). Try pushing the flash in or out (it should move with a little force). See if the flash now responds before reassembling.

I have a Pentax IQZoom 160 and it has error code U3 when I turn it on. The flash and zoom try to deploy several times but only the flash comes out.


If the 'U' disappears when the zoom lever is moved your camera is ready to use. It may be defective if it comes up often.
