Juan Isaac S,


Tengo una PENTAX K-M que de buenas a primeras ha dejado de funciona. No se enciende. Podréis darme vuestro parecer al respecto.


I have a PENTAX K-M that has stopped working right away. It does not turn on. Can you can give me your opinion about it?

It would be interesting to see what it does with a power supply for a power source instead of a battery.

Have you left it overnight with the battery out as a sort of reset? I'm just guessing here.

Si no me equivoco la Km usa baterias AA correcto? Verifica que los contactos de baterias esten limpios. Aun cuando parezcan estarlo, es bueno limpiarlos con algo levemente abrasivo como una goma de lapiz. Usualmente estos contactos crean corrosion que no se ve pero evitan buen contacto. El segundo punto es asegurarque los contactos ejercen buena presion. Con mucho cuidado levantarlos un poco.


English summary: Clean the battery contacts and make sure they are properly pushing against the batteries.
Too lazy for a full translation...
