Problem with K100d super.

Hi,
l am using a K100d Super that my daughter gave to me when she bought a new camera. l have been using it every day with no probs, however l went to use it 2 days ago and its wont work. In the LCD panel there is 'AV' flashing. It wont focus, nothing. l dont know alot about cameras. Can anyone offer any advice?

What lens are you using? If it has an aperture ring you will need to do one of two things:

1. In the custom menu enable the use of the Aperture Ring

or

2. Set the lens to the "A" setting to allow the camera to control the aperture.


Hope that helps.

maybe you've bumped the aperture ring by accident?
if you lens has an aperture ring, move it back to the "A" position

You wouldn't be the first. There are so many buttons, rings and sundry items on a DSLR it's amazing anyone can take a decent picture at all.

I have a K100DS - very nice camera, solid, reliable as a nail, versatile. Look after it and you'll get years of enjoyment. BTW, it's worth reading through the manual several times. I know it's not exactly rivetting bedtime material, but you'll learn a lot and that will make you increasingly confident and skillful with the camera.
