View Full Version : New K100D + flash icon problem

12-29-2006, 07:23 AM
I got a K100 for Christmas (YEAH!) and have had a blast with it so far but have run into a problem. The flash indicator light (lightning bolt) comes on in low light situations and my camera won't self select any exposure greater than ~1.5". (my flash is set to manual and is closed) The shutter speed and F stop indicator also flash in the view finder under these circumstances. How do I turn this off, or is my camera messed up?
I can't find a reference to this problem anywhere!

Sorry, I could not find any setting on mine to duplicate your situation.

What was the mode and or shutter/aperture/ISO? Did you have good batteries?

Thanks for trying to help but I did an RMA from the original site. I talked to people at pentaxforums.com and Pentax tech support but nobody has an answer. The Pentax guy thinks I have a bad light sensor? Hopefully my replacement will be trouble free! In the mean time I'm missing my new toy:(
