Having problems with your Pentax K100D Digital Camera ?

Pentax K100D DSLR


\015 My LCD monitor stopped working while I'm framing the picture. It works for picture playback, and when I change modes, but not while I'm taking the picture. In other words, I have to use the viewfinder only. Help!\015

Answers :

K100D has not "live view" option. Thats why you cant use the LCD monitor while framing your pictures.
No need to send your camera to Pentax for this BTW.

\015\012Most of the SLRs that were available up until recently only had a viewfinder option for framing your photo. It makes you take a better photo when the view finder is on your face - the distance when using the LCD screen makes it hard to keep the camera steady.

I have a Pentax K100D and occasionaly when I push to button to take a picture it does not work. I have to turn off the camera and then try it again. It is in Auto mode.

My camera menu (Pentax K100D) often cuts out before I can select items. This is a random experience as sometimes it holds for more than 1 or two seconds .. but it is extremely frustrating when trying to chnage any aspect of the menu or the function button for ASA sensitivity.
