I experienced this with a trusty film-based Pentax 105 Zoom used as a backup on a European trip. It was frustrating that the big "E"
warning was not covered by the otherwise complete manual, and
I was on a cruise with no competent camera shop to advise. I had
loaded fresh film AND new batteries from a reliable supplier before
leaving. So: (1) manually rewound the used film, replaced with new, and (2) checked to see if the lens cover was properly deploying when the camera power was turned on. This turned out
to be the problem!. Cover needed a little fingernail flick to open fully, the "E" warning disappeared, and I got 8 superb rolls of
Italian pictures.

I think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.

My Pentax K100 DSLR is flashing "av" and will not take a photograph, though the shutter works fine and takes pictures without the lens.


"AV" means apeture priority. This means that you set the apeture that the camera will use, and it decides the shutter speed. The flashing "av" means that you've picked an apeture that the camera can't pick a suitable shutter speed for at this light level. I would suggest picking a different apeture, or switch the camera to full automatic mode via the dial on the top left of the camera.

I just bought a used ist Ds and all I get on the top view is a flashing Av--


That means your camera is in aperture priority mode. Try setting it to something else like the "green"mode or "P" mode.

I suspect dirty contacts on either lens or body. Clean contacts. Should alleviate problem. This happened to my K100d.

What does smcp -fa mean


SMCP- means: Super MultiCoated Pentax (a term that refers to the anti-relctive coatings that Pentax has been using on its lenses for years F-means it is a lens designed to cover the larger area required of a lens for Film camera use versus the smaller sensor of the Digital SLRs Pentax also makes. Pentax also makes DA lenses , which will only work with their digital SLRs. A- means it will work in fully automatic mode on cameras that have the ability to set shutter speed and F-stop automatically (most modern Pentaxes) It should also be noted that all DA and FA pentax lenses have a modified version of the original Pentax K lens mount, which replaced their first lens mount, the universal M42 used by so many early film SLR manufacurers- this concluded todays pentax lens history

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.

U3 flashing


I wish i could help you, but Pentax's manual is poor and many people (over the net) face Pentax error message with no meaning... i would take it to your local camera repair shop. If they can't help you call ProCamera in harlottesvile VA. He collects pentax owns his own shop. He's been in business for 12yr's he is also a succesful photoghrapher. I''ve heard nothing but the best about this guy Bill Moretz. I have a pentax if anything happens to hit i know where i shipping it of too and pentax is the only camera i will own. His prices are right so the shipping cosr is worth it.
