Pentax Zx-7 shutter lock-up

Postby midnightryder_54 on Tue Mar 22, 2005 1:16 pm

Help! I replaced the battery, the window on the right displays the number of pictures used on the film, but the automatic strope flash does not open by itself, and the dial on the top left which show which mode you are in, i.e. auto, portrait, etc. does not light up. Is there trouble shooting that I can do to find out the problem? Also, the strobe flash will not fire. the shutter will not release. I can not take any pictures! Thanks :oops:

That sounds bad. I suggest you call a tech at Pentax at 1-800-729-0107 for assistance. If you have just received the product, contact the store where you bought it and ask for assistance.

I also have the same problem with my ZX-7. Were you able to fix it?

As it is right now, it runs much of the time and is really noisy

I'd still have it checked - it may not be correctly adjusted if it is making noise and you may not be getting the shutter times you think you are. Anytime you are getting suspicious noise, something is probably not right.
