PRECAUTIONS FOR YOUR CAMERA
Precautions when taking pictures
* Do not use the camera where it may come in
Precautions for proper care
e Use a blower and lens brush to remove dust
contact with rain, water or any other liquid,
because the camera is not weather, water, or
liquid resistant. Should the camera get wet
from rain, splashing water, or any other lig-
uid, 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.
Be careful not to subject the camera to
strong vibrations, shock or pressure. Use a
cushion to protect the camera when carrying
it in a motorcycle, car, boat, etc.
Condensation on the interior or the exterior
of the camera may be extremely harmful to
the camera mechanism as it may cause rust.
Furthermore, if the camera is taken from
warm temperature to a subfreezing 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 difference is minimized. Do not
remove it from the bag until temperature has
stabilized. |
accumulated on the lens or the viewfinder
window.
Never use solvents such as paint thinner, al-
cohol or benzene 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 circuits inside the camera con-
tain high voltage working parts. Never
attempt to disassemble the camera yourself.
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.
* 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.
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).
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.
* The PENTAX warranty provided only for
the repair of defects in materials or work-
manship. Damage of any kind cannot be re-
paired at no charge under the term of the
warranty. If the difficulty is caused as a di-
rect result of the product being used in con-
ditions as out lined in the other operation
contrary to the instructions outlined in this
manual, charges will be assessed or a repair
quotation will be provided.
» Misuse of a battery can cause hazards such as
leakage, overheating, explosions, etc. The
battery should be inserted with the ” +” and
”—? sides facing correctly.
* Never try to disassemble, short or recharge
the battery. Also do not dispose of the bat-
tery in a fire, as it may explode.
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.
* Be sure to store the battery out of the reach
of children. Seek medical assistance immedi-
ately if accidentally swallowed.
* 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.

WARRANTY POLICY
PAL en ie
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
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 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.
This warranty does not apply to Pentax prod-
ucts purchased in the United States. Therefore,
for warranty information regarding Pentax
products purchased in the United States, please
read the warranty card supplied with your prod-
uct.
