  • Ensure your batteries are well charged and/or try a different card. The symptoms you describe suggest the camera is having problems writing to the existing card. It may need reformatting, but ...
  • Does the SD card you're using otherwise work with the camera, for taking photos? It might be worthwhile re-formatting the card within the camera before copying the upgrade file to the card. Ensure ...
  • Batteries are a consumable ... that's just something one's got to learn to live with these days if one wants the conveniences of modern digital photography, Still a lot cheaper than film with it's ...
  • Oh dear, that looks like a mechanically broken shutter. Did you have an accident or did it fail by itself?
  • Sadly battery life is something we have to live with in this modern age. I might suggest that you've probably had reasonable use out of yours, but it just may be worth contacting the manufacturer ...
  • I'd recommend to NOT continue using the swollen batteries. If one swells a little more whilst it's in the camera you may not be able to remove it without "major surgery". The swelling is a sign of ...
  • Replied in Odd Couple
    Nothing odd about that! Pentax lenses are usually very good quality and have the distinctive advantage over some other manufacturers of being easy to use with an adaptor, the aperture ring working ...

    This morning I took my NX5 with it's 18-55mm lens into the garden to photograph an unusual moth, but when I came to try and make an exposure I found the shutter blinds were closed and would not open! ...
  • Agreed ... also, with regard to using eBay as a price guide, make sure you're checking equipment that has actually sold, not just the over-inflated "look what I've got" prices that seem to feature ...
  • Having been in the electronics repair industry since the '70's, I'd suggest that spitting on your SD card and then using that to introduce moisture to the innards of your camera was exactly the ...
  • Dunno ... maybe he didn't have another camera to take the pictures and he got a friend to help him out?
  • Personally, I've "taken advantage" of other buyers' suspicious nature and bought several items from "zero-feedback" sellers for a good price without any problem. With the guarantee of refund from ...
