FOR SAFE USE OF YOUR CAMERA
Although we have carefully designed this camera for safe operation, please be sure to follow precautions
given in this page.
The electric circuits inside the camera
contain high voltage working parts. Never
attempt to disassemble the camera your-
self.
Never touch internal parts of the camera
if they become exposed from dropping the
camera or for some other reason, as there
is danger of electric shock. |
Be sure to store batteries out of the reach
of children. Seek medical assistance im-
mediately if accidentally swallowed.
/N WARNING This mark indicates precautions that if not followed, could result in se-
rious injury to the operator.
AN CAUTION This mark indicates precautions that, if not followed, could result in
minor or medium injury to the operator or damage to the equipment.
N WARNING MA caution
e Do not use the flash near anyone's eyes,
as it may hurt them. Be particularly care-
ful with the flash around infants.
e Never try to disassemble, short or re-
charge the battery. Also, do not dispose of
the battery in fire, as it may explode.
» Remove the battery from the camera im-
mediately if it becomes hot or begin to
smoke. Be careful not to burn yourself
during removal.
PRECAUTIONS FOR YOUR CAMERA
Precautions when taking pictures
* Do not use the camera where it may come in
contact with rain or water because the cam-
era is not weather resistant. Should the cam-
era get wet from rain or splashing water,
wipe it off immediately with a dry soft cloth.
* 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.
¢ Condensation on the interior or the exterior
of the camera may be extremely harmful to
the camera mechanism as it may cause rust
and or corrosion. Furthermore, if the cam-
era is taken from warm temperature to a sub-
freezing one or vice versa, the formation of
icelets may cause damage. In such a case, put
the camera into a case or plastic bag so that
any changes in temperature will be as grad-
ual as possible. After temperature difference
is minimized, the camera may be removed
from the bag.
Do not apply force to the zoom lens; do not
place the camera with lens facing downward.
* Dirt, mud, sand, moisture, toxic gas, water,
salt water, etc., penetrating the inside of the
camera may cause damage or render it inop-
erable. Damage of any kind will not be re-
paired under the terms of the warranty and
charges may be assessed. Therefore, handle
the camera with great care.
Precautions for proper care
* Use a blower and lens brush to remove dust
accumulated on the lens or the viewfinder
window,
* Never use solvents such as paint thinner, al-
cohol or benzine to clean the camera. To
clean the external camera surfaces, - but not
glass surfaces; using a dry or silicone -
treated cloth is recommended.
® The electric circuitry inside the camera
containts high voltage working parts. Never
attempt to disassemble the camera.
Precautions for storage
* Avoid leaving the camera for extended peri-
ods in places where temperature and humid-
ity are high such as in a car.
e Do not store the camera in a closet with
mothballs or in a case where chemicals are
handled. Store it in a place with good air cir-
culation to prevent fungus growth.
Other precautions
e The temperature range at which this camera
functions properly is 50°C to —10°C (122 F
to 14°F).
e To maintain optimum performance, it is rec-
ommended that the camera be inspected
every one or two years. If the camera has not
been used for an extended period, or is being
prepared for an important photographic ses-
sion, it is recommended that you have the
camera inspected or test shoot with it.
Repairs made necessory due to the camera
being subjected to any of the conditions
warned about in this precautions section, Or
any other precaution or warning throughout
this operating manual, are not covered under
the terms of the warranty and charges may
be assessed.
PRECAUTIONS FOR BATTERY
Precautions for battery
e Misuse of a battery can cause hazards such as.
leakage, overheating, explosions, etc. The
battery should be inserted with the “+” and
“—” sides facing correctly.
e Never try to disassemble, short or recharge
the battery. Also do not dispose of the bat-
tery in a fire, as it may exploded.
e Battery performance may be temporarily
hindered in low temperatures, but will re-
cover in normal temperatures.
Keep a spare battery on hand for replace-
ment convenience when shooting outdoors
or while traveling.
* Keep the battery out of the reach of children.
e When the camera is in a bag, make sure the
main switch is off; otherwise, battery power
may be wasted if the shutter release button is
accidentally pushed.

Im and Film Speed Setting.
Use a DX-coded film with ISO rating from
25 to 1600. When any of these films are
loaded, the proper film speed is automati-
cally set for the camera.
Non-DX coded films cannot be used. If non
DX-coded film is used, the camera automati-
cally set the film speed to ISO 25.
A film with ISO400 film speed is recom-
mended to get less image blur and to cover
more of photographic situations.
Use high-speed films with ISO 800 or higher
mainly for shooting indoors or in dimly-lit
conditions.
Use of negative color film (print film) is rec-
ommended.

WARRANTY POLICY
All Pentax cameras purchased through author-
ized 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
equipment does not show evidence of impact,
sand or liquid damage, mishandling, tamper-
ing, battery or chemical corrosion, operation
contrary to operating instructions, or modifica-
tion 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 consequen-
tial damages of any kind, whether caused by
defective material or workmanship or other-
wise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability
of the manufacturer or its representatives
under all guarantees or warranties, whether ex-
pressed or implied, is strictly limited to the re-
placement of parts as herein before provided.
No refunds will be made on repairs performed
by non-authorized Pentax service facilities.
32
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 manufac-
turer, 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
1$ 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 maybe charged by the manu-
facturer’s representatives in that country.
Notwithstanding this, your Pentax returned to
the manufacturer will be serviced free of
charge according to this procedure and war-
ranty policy.
In any case, however, shipping charges and cus-
toms 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.
The local warranty policies available from
Pentax distributors in some countries can su-
persede this warranty policy. Therefore, we rec-
ommend that you review the warranty card
supplied with your product at the time of pur-
chase, or contact the PENTAX distributor in
your country for more information and to re-
ceive a copy of the warranty policy.
