    Knowing what the actual error is would give us a chance of offering advice - assuming it is not mentioned in the manual, of course.

Check the voltage trigger of the flash, if you're under 7vdc. Then you are good to go.

SOURCE: my pentax k100d has a memory card error

Trun the camera off and remove the batteries. Leave it for at least a minute before inserting the batteries. Put the car in and turn the camera on.

The firmware in these cameras can get confused. Removing the batteries for a minuite or two will allow the camera circuits to discharge and so it will reset from start when powered-up again.

If this does not work then the camera may need to be sent away for repair. This need not be expensive it could be as simple as re-programming the camera. (Their program memory is writeable and so it can be accidentally altered under certian circunstsances. It may be possible to do this yourself using the downloadable firmware upgrade, but I would let someone else try thet first!)

However, it is just possible that the new card is also faulty!

Check the cards in your PC by obtaining a SD card reader to allow you to plug it directly into your PC.

For reference I would always recommend inserting and removing memory cards with the camera turned off. I would also use the SD card reader to load the images into the PC. Unplugging devices form the USB port can be harmful to some devices. Check the bottom right of your PC screen for an 'safe unplug' icon when things are plugged in.

SOURCE: SDHC memory card not working on Pentax k110d camera

My guess is that the K110D is not compatible with SDHC cards.

Picture is not displaying on sony dsc-hx1


Talking about two camera's my guess is you made a picture with a Pentax K100D and you put it on the memory card in a Sony dsc-hx1.
In the manual the Sony tells what sizes of pictures it can display. None of the 4 sizes the Pentax K100D makes, is in that list.
Perhaps you don't mean this, please let me know.

My pentax K100D says there is not card in camera


What type of memory card do you have? The K100D works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

K100d wont format memory card


Make sure your new memory card is an SD card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, an SDHC card will not work in devices designed only for SD cards.

I bought a 4G SD card for my K100D and it gives me a card error message, the card works fine in my wife's Canon compact.


The K100D works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into SD slots, they will not work in devices not designed for SDHC. Apparently your wife's Canon is newer and SDHC-compatible.
The K100D is limited to SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

What Memory Cards will work?


Hi,,

Unfortunately, the Pentax K100D is not SDHC compatible, which means that the camera can be equipped with a maximum memory capacity of 2GB.

It is also advisable to choose a fast version of the Secure Digital memory card, such as Ultra II or Extreme III by SanDisk. I would recommend using a memory card of at least 512MB, or even 1GB if you can.

Hope this info helps

Count down on memory card


Hi!
The K100D's lcd read-out is limited to displaying 999 as its maximum. This means that the card is capable of storing 999+ pictures. Once it gets to a point that the card can only store 999 pictures or less, then it will begin to count down.
Hope this helps!
