Error Display in the Event of Incorrect Operation
In the event of unusual operation of the camera, [E] followed by double figures, e.g. [E-13], will
appear on the LCD panel to indicate an error. When this happens, the shutter cannot be released. In
this event, follow the instructions below.
The view from the viewfinder
is not clear.
The diopter is not adjusted. Adjust the diopter. Page 33
The spool does not turn when
winding the film.
No batteries have been installed. Install the batteries. Page 27
If the first figure after [E] is
“1” or “3”
This indicates camera breakdown, irrespective of the second figure. You should take the
camera to your local Pentax service center.
If the second figure after [E]
is “1”, “2” or “3”
If there is a film in the camera, wind to the end and remove the film. Press the shutter and if
the error display disappears, the camera is ready for use. We recommend, however, that
you have the camera checked at your local Pentax service center. If there is no film in the
camera, open and close the back cover. If the error display disappears, the camera is
ready for use.
If [PErr] is displayed Take the viewfinder out and put it back two or three times. If the error display disappears,
the camera is ready for use.
In rare cases, the camera may not operate correctly due to static electricity. This can be remedied by taking the batteries
out and putting them back again.
