Question about Pentax IQZoom 200 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Problems with camera. Help please.

This happened suddenly, after I had shot nearly 2/3rds of a roll.

The camera zoomed out completely and when switched off, retracted only half. Pressing the zoom control helps - the zoom retracts and the flash moves inside the body. But when the camera is switched on again, the same thing happens - the whole zoom comes out and does not retract. The indicated on the panel indicates U7 (flashing). The shutter button does nothing. Please help.

I am based in New Delhi, India. Is there a Pentax Service Store over here?

My email address is [email protected]

Thanks a lot.

    I have a Pentax IQZoom 200, my camera is doing the same thing withthe zoom lens. Is this a common problem with these camera's? I am really saddened by this. How is it fixed? The zoom comes out when the camera is turned on and then only retracks part of the way. Error code U7???? Nothing in book about U7?? Please help!

My camera shuts off when I my zoom is nearly halfway through

Make sure your batter is fully charged, and is not bad. This kind of reaction can happen with a weak battery or partly charged.
If that is not it, then the camera needs repair.

Digital Zoom not working and screen is blurry

Your zoom probably does not come out all the way and therefore you get some blurry shots. Had the same problem on a Panasonic camera. Solution: replace zoom motor and gears. Results=expensive. Goes beyond the value of the camera. You might want to buy another used A85 or newer digital camera.

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden

you should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.
