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.
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.

fide photographic distribution channels are guaranteed
against defects of material or workmanship for a period of
twelve months from date of purchase. Service will be
rendered, and defective parts will be replaced without cost
to you within that period, provided the equipment does not
show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage,
mishandling, tampering, battery or chemical corrosion,
operation contrary to operating instructions, or modification
by an unauthorized repair shop. The manufacturer or its
authorized representatives shall not be liable for any repair
or alterations except those made with its written consent
and shall not be liable for damages from delay or loss of use
or from other indirect or consequential damages of any kind,
whether caused by defective material or workmanship or
otherwise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability of the
manufacturer or its representatives under all guarantees or

Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any PENTAX which proves defective during the 12-month
warranty period should be returned to the dealer from whom
you purchased the equipment or to the manufacturer. If
there is no representative of the manufacturer in your
country, send the equipment to the manufacturer, with
postage prepaid. In this case, it will take a considerable
length of time before the equipment can be returned to you
owing to the complicated customs procedures required. If
the equipment is covered by warranty, repairs will be made
and parts replaced free of charge, and the equipment will be
returned to you upon completion of servicing. If the
equipment is not covered by warranty, regular charges of
the manufacturer or of its representatives will apply.
Shipping charges are to be borne by the owner. If your
PENTAX was purchased outside of the country where you
wish to have it serviced during the warranty period, regular
handling and servicing fees may be charged by the
manufacturer’s representatives in that country.
Notwithstanding this, your PENTAX returned to the
manufacturer will be serviced free of charge according to
this procedure and warranty policy.
OTHERS
In any case, however, shipping charges and customs
clearance fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date
of your purchase when required, please keep the receipt or
bills covering the purchase of your equipment for at least a
year. Before sending your equipment for servicing, please
make sure that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s
authorized representatives or their approved repair shops,
unless you are sending it directly to the manufacturer.
Always obtain a quotation for the service charge, and only
after you accept the quoted service charge, instruct the
service station to proceed with the servicing.

distributors in some countries can supersede this
warranty policy. Therefore, we recommend that you
