Reset shutter count in a 645D

Got a brand new 645D just now. Unfortunately I put in a not empty SD-card. So the shutter starts counting from 3000 images.
Can someone please teach me how to reset the shutter count?

Regards

The image number (called File No in the menu reference manual) isn't representative of the true shutter count, which is stored in the camera and can be read out by various software, PhotoMe being one such.

If the high number still bothers you, it can be reset (whereas the true shutter count cannot be reset):

Set "File No" to off in the Memory option on the record menu page 4. Turn the camera off and insert a blank SD card. Turn the camera back on. Images should now be counted from 1 again. Then turn the memory option for "File No" back on.

Let me know if this does the trick. I don't have a 645D to try it out on.

Thanks very much Ole.
It worked. I didn't know the Filenr. ine the menu. Perhaps my other Pentax cameras had this too..
Now it starting with 0001. Actually I wanted it to start with nr, 0074, which is how many shots I actually took.
I didn't want to cheat anybody, I just didn't want the image counter to start at 3600 :-)
Now my shutter count is 73 above the image counter. Thaat's quite allright :-)

Regards
Jens

Then I put in af file named 0075. Now it starts at 0076, which is the correct image count.
Thanks again :-)

I'm glad that it worked! Remember to turn the memory setting back on.
