Question about Pentax K100D Digital Camera
When the K100D camera is turned on the battery icon continually flashes and thats it. Nothing works, no LCD screen and can not connect to the PC. Tried fresh batteries with the same issue. Please help
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.
