By opening, do you mean the back cover or the top cover?
after rewinding the film opening the back door will reset the counter. if it does not reset, try firing the shutter with the back door opened a few times. this counter is mostly plastic.
with the back door opened try taping the top cover over the counter to free the counter gear.
if it still wont reset the top cover will have to be removed and the counter repaired.
there are no new parts available for this model Pentax so a good used counter could be expensive.
if you take the top cover off, usually the pointer plate on the right side of the counter is rubbing on the counter preventing it from resetting.

N80 , frame number blinks, won't advance


According to the manual, the only time the frame counter blinks, is when the back is open or partially open when attempting to rewind film. Push on the back to be sure it's properly snapped closed to see if that solves the issue.

FUJI Finepix A700 The picture count will not reset and I have tried various empty cards. In essence it is saying the memory is full when there is 2G open on the card. I noticed it was not resetting...


This camera has a frame count capacity far beyond what is normally conceivable at a whopping 999-9999 images so I'm going to assume that the frame counter has been corrupted and given a faults count. This can be reset but first the card needs to be formatted to this camera. I've done a screen shot of the sequence because it's easier for me and will show you were and what functions need to be carried out. Also this count can be upset by opening the battery door or removing the memory card while the camera is still in the power on position hope this solves your problem.

What does Frame No Full mean?


If you look at the top right of your camera screen when reviewing pictures you should see the frame count. As yours is reading "Frame number full" the count should be reading 999.9999 so you need to reset to 100.0000. How to do this is posted in my tips section of my profile under "THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW" I have pasted the section below.
Cheers

FRAME NUMBER FULL!!

If you get this message on screen then your counter has reached 999-9999 and the camera will not take anymore pictures until you reset the counter to 100-0001.

To do this follow the instructions in your manual or read on my friends...

Firstly, make sure you have a picture card inserted into your camera and you have saved any pictures on it to your pc because you are about to format the card inside the camera and you will lose any pictures you have stored on there.

Ok. turn your camera on and press the menu/ok button and select "SETTINGS" from the menu.
Scroll through the menus until you find FORMAT. Select this and you will be asked if you would like to continue. Select OK.
Depending on how large your card is (16mb - 1,2 gb etc) will determine how long this will take but it's not very long.
After you have done this your card is now wiped clean of memory and has been formatted to be used for your cameras software.

Next, select FRAME in the SETTINGS menu and set your camera to RENEW and press OK.
Now come out of your menus and take a picture.

Review the picture taken and check the counter reading in the top right of the screen. It should now read 100-0001. The counter has now been reset.

Now go back into your menu and select SETTINGS again and scroll down to FRAME once again. Set this back to CONT (continuous) and press ok. Your camera should be reset and you can now use it.

Note: If you have more than one card you will have to reformat each card because the camera will store and recognise the frame numbers stored on the card and continue using them rather than set them to 100-0001 or will open a new folder on your card and start using this as the new one thus taking up more space on your card reducing the number of shots you can store on it

When I press the shutter button the light flashes red and it beeps.On the screen it says Frame No. Full. What can I do to correct this problem


It should tell you in the manual(if you have 1)
If you review your current photo's it should read in the top right corner the number of frames used. If your camera says frame number full then the numbers in the top right should read 999.9999 and you need to reset the counter.
To reset press menu and scroll down to settings. select FORMAT and format the current card in your camera. This will wipe everything on your card so make sure you have saved them to your pc first!
After you have formatted your card go back to your settings menu and select FRAME and set this to RENEW. Now come out of the menus and take a picture. Review the picture and the counter in the top right corner should now read 100. 0001 your counter has now been reset. Now go back to the settings menu and select FRAME again and set it back to CONT (continuous). Note: The counter has been reset for the current picture card only. Other picture cards will display the previous counter readings saved on to that card and will need to be FORMATTED in the same way to reset to 100.0001

Every time I turn on my camera it says ''FRAME NO. FULL''


Hello, it will help:

go to settings menu, then look for FRAME NO. setting. Set it to RENEW. It should do the trick.

It happens because the internal picture counter has reached its limit and you have to reset it to zero.

Good luck!

My fujifilm a800 will not let me take any pictures, saying 'frame no full' on the screen. please help


I've just had the same problem. You need to reformat your memory card (make sure you download your photos first as it will erase everything on the card). Then go into the set-up part of the menu on the camera. In there you should find the option -FRAME NO. This will be set on continuous. Select the option that says RENEW. This will reset the frame number counter. Once you have done this go back into the FRAME NO menu and set it back to continous. You can now start taking photos again as the counter has been reset.

Film counter does not advance when film is wound forward!


The frame counter is engaged when the film door is closed by a small tab at the top of the door near the hinge. Try pressing that area of the door as you advance the wind lever. You don't need film in the camera to do this. The counter with work without it. The door may be a little bent and not pressing the counter lever in far enough to fully engage the mechanism.

Frame counter-can't shoot


Having film in the camera makes no difference for the frame counter to work on this model. The counter is activated by a small tab that protrudes from the top edge of the film door near the hinge.

Locate the area on the camera where that tab meets in the channel along the top of the film compartment. There is a small opening for the lever that engages the drive gear for the counter. The opening may have debris (foam) or the tab may be broken. If neither of these is the case, the film door may be bent slightly and is not pushing the lever in far enough.

It is important for the counter to work on the FG since the metering is not active until the counter reaches '1'. (switch) It blinks 60 &125 in the display otherwise
