PRECAUTIONS FOR YOUR CAMERA
Precautions when taking pictures
* Do not allow the camera to get wet. Should the
camera get wet wipe it off immediately with a
dry soft cioth.
* Do not drop the camera or allow it to hit a solid
object. If the camera suffers a severe shock or
impact, take it to a Pentax service center for
inspection.
* Be careful not to subject the camera to strong
vibrations, shock or pressure. Cushion the
camera during transportation.
* Condensation on the interior or the exterior of
the camera may be harmful to the camera
mechanism. When taking the camera from a
warm temperature to a subfreezing one or vice
versa, put the camera into a case or plastic
bag so that any changes in temperature differ-
ence is minimized. Do not remove it from the
bag until the temperature has stabilized.
* Regular size color prints may cut off what
appears on the extreme edges of the film
frame. Compose your picture with a margin of
safety at the edges.
Precautions for storage
* Avoid leaving the camera for extended periods
in places where temperature and humidity are
high, such as in a car. `
* Store the camera in a cool, dry place with good
air circulation that is free of dirt, dust, or chem-
icals.
Precautions for proper care
* Use a blower and lens brush to remove dust
accumulated on the lens or the viewfinder win-
dow.
* To clean the external camera surfaces - but not
glass surfaces - use a dry or silicone-treated
cloth.
* Never use solvents such as paint thinner, alco-
hol or benzene to clean the camera.
PRECAUTIONS FOR BATTERY USAGE
Other precautions
* The temperature range at which this camera
functions properly is 50°C to -10°C (122°F to
14°F).
* The PENTAX warranty provided is only for the
repair of defects in materials or workmanship.
Damage of any kind cannot be repaired at no
charge under the term of the warranty. If the
difficulty is caused as a direct result of the
product being used in conditions contrary to
the instructions outlined in this manual,
charges will be assessed or a repair quotation
will be provided.
LCD (Liquid-crystal display)
* When the LCD is exposed to high tempera-
tures over about 60°C, it may blacken, but
when the temperature normalizes, it will return
to normal.
* The LCD may also slow down in response to
lower temperatures, but this is a normal char-
acteristic of an LCD.
ein low light situations, the illuminator of the
LCD panel lights up for 4sec when the camera
operates.
* Use one 3V lithium battery, type CR-2 or the
equivalent.
* Misuse of a battery can cause hazards such as
leakage, overheating, explosions, etc. The bat-
tery should be inserted with the “+” and “-”
sides facing correctly.
» Never try to disassemble, short or recharge the
battery. Do not dispose of the battery in fire.
» Battery performance may be temporarily hin-
dered in low temperatures, but will recover in
normal temperatures.
* Be sure to store batteries out of the reach of
children. Seek medical assistance immediately
if accidentally swallowed.
* Keep a spare battery on hand for replacement
convenience when shooting outdoors or while
traveling.

the front of the subject may be cast in shadow.
In such a case, use the Daylight-Sync Shooting
Mode (Flash-ON Mode) within the flash effective
range to take a picture. This will ensure that a
picture is well exposed without any shadow.
When you wish to discharge the flash, use this

flash to properly expose the foreground subject
and a slow-speed to expose the low light back-
ground.
Notes:
* When shooting in low light, the shutter speed
gets slower, and camera shake is likely to blur
your picture. Use of a tripod is recommended.

WARRANTY POLICY
All Pentax cameras purchased through autho-
rnzed bona fide photographic distribution chan-
nels 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 equip-
ment 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 work-
manship or otherwise; and it is expressly agreed
that the liability of the manufacturer or its repre-
sentatives under all guarantees or warranties,
whether expressed or implied, is strictly limited
to the replacement of parts as herein before pro-
vided. No refunds will be made on repairs per-
formed by non-authorized Pentax service facili-
ties.
44
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 equip-
ment or to the manufacturer. If there is no repre-
sentative of the manufacturer in your country,
send the equipment to the manufacturer with
postage prepaid. In this case, it will take a con-
siderable 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 equip-
ment 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 rep-
resentatives in that country. Notwithstanding
this, your Pentax returned to the manufacturer
will be serviced free of charge according to this
procedure and warranty policy.
In any case, however, shipping charges and
customs clearance fees are to be borne by the
sender. To prove the date of your purchase
when required, please keep the receipts 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 send-
ing it to the manufacture’s authorized represen-
tatives 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.
This warranty does not apply to Pentax prod-
ucts purchased in the United States.
Therefore, for warranty information regard-
ing Pentax products purchased in the United
States, please read the warranty card sup-
plied with your product.
