Warning Caution This symbol indicates that violating this item could cause serious personal injury. This symbol indicates that violating this item could cause minor or medium personal injury, or material loss.
Warning Do not disassemble or modify the camera. High voltage areas are present inside the camera, with the risk of electric shock. If the camera interior is exposed due to dropping or otherwise damaging the camera, never touch the exposed portion. There is the risk of electric shock. Wrapping the strap around your neck is dangerous. Take care that small children do not hang the strap over their necks. To avoid the risk of it being swallowed by mistake, keep the SD Memory Card out of the reach of small children. Seek medical attention immediately if accidentally swallowed. Always use the AC adapter specified exclusively for this product, with the specified power and voltage. Using an AC adapter not exclusive to this product, or using the exclusive AC adapter with an unspecified power or voltage can cause a fire, electric shock, or camera breakdown. If any irregularities occur during use, such as smoke or a strange odor, stop use immediately, remove the batteries or the AC adapter, and contact your nearest PENTAX service center. Continued use could cause a fire or electric shock. During thunderstorms, unplug and discontinue use of the AC adapter. Continued use could cause equipment failure, a fire, or electric shock. Caution Do not short the battery or dispose of the battery in fire. Do not disassemble the battery. The battery could explode or catch fire. Do not charge any batteries other than rechargeable Ni-MH batteries. The battery could explode or catch fire. Of the batteries that can be used in this camera, only the Ni-MH battery can be recharged. Remove the battery from the camera immediately if it becomes hot or begins to smoke. Be careful not to burn yourself during removal. Some portions of the camera heat up during use. There is the risk of low temperature burns when holding such portions for long periods. Do not place your finger on the flash when it is discharging as there is a risk of burns. Do not discharge the flash when it is in direct contact with clothing or other objects. Firing the flash may result in discoloration of such objects. 1

Handling the Camera

When traveling abroad, be sure to take you international warranty card with you. You may also wish to take along the document Worldwide Service Network included with the product. This document is useful for making inquiries from your travel destination. Always confirm that the camera is working properly when the camera has not been used for a long time, or before important occasions (weddings, trips, etc.). PENTAX is not responsible for consequential damages (costs incurred for photography, lost profits, etc.) arising from failure of this product. The lens on this camera is not exchangeable. The lens is not removable. Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol, or benzene. Do not subject to high temperatures or high humidity. Do not leave the camera in a vehicle, as the temperature can get very high. Do not store the camera with preservatives and chemicals. Storage in high temperatures and high humidity can cause molding. Remove from case and store in a dry and well-ventilated location. Do not subject the camera to strong vibrations, shocks, or pressure. Use a cushion to protect the camera from vibrations of motorcycles, automobiles, or ships. The temperature range for camera use is 0C to 40C. The LCD display may appear black under high temperatures, but will return to normal as temperatures normalize. The LCD display may respond more slowly at low temperatures. This is due to liquid crystal properties, and is not a fault. Periodic inspections are recommended every one to two years to maintain high performance. Sudden temperature changes will cause condensation on the inside and outside of the camera. Place the camera in your bag or a plastic bag, retrieving the camera after decreasing the temperature difference. Avoid contact with garbage, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, or salts. These could cause a camera breakdown. Wipe dry any rain or water drops on the camera. See Precautions when using an SD Memory Card (p.19) for details on the SD Memory Card.

Powering the Camera

1 Getting Started

(Using AA batteries)

(Using CR-V3)

Installing the Batteries

Install batteries in the camera. Use one CR-V3, or use two AA Ni-MH batteries, or AA alkaline batteries. Turn off the camera when setting batteries. Wipe away water or dirt from the camera with a dry cloth before setting batteries. Do not set batteries with wet or dirty hands.
Slide the battery cover in the direction of the arrow, and flip open. Insert the batteries according to the +- indicator in the battery chamber. Close the battery cover and push horizontally to lock.
When using for a prolonged period, please use the AC adapter D-AC5 (p.15). AA alkaline battery, and the CR-V3 battery are not rechargeable. Do not open the battery cover or remove the batteries when the power switch is on. When you will not use the camera for a long while, remove the batteries. Otherwise, the battery may leak. If the date and time settings have been reset when you insert new batteries after a long while, follow the procedure for Setting the Date and Time (p.24). Insert batteries correctly. Wrong insertion can cause a camera breakdown. 13

Number of Captures and Playback Time (25C, new batteries) 1 Getting Started
Taking pictures (50% flash usage) Image Storage Capacity CR-V3 Ni-MH batteries AA alkaline batteries Approx. 500 Approx. 300 Approx. 100 Playback Playback time CR-V3 Ni-MH batteries AA alkaline batteries Approx. 360 min. Approx. 230 min. Approx. 140 min.
These figures are based on PENTAX measuring conditions. They may vary by Capture mode or shooting conditions. Battery performance temporarily decreases as the temperature decreases. When using the camera in cold climates, have extra batteries on hand, keeping them warm in your pocket. Battery performance will return to normal when returned to room temperature. Owing to the characteristics of AA alkaline batteries, the camera may not deliver optimal performance at low temperatures when powered by alkaline batteries. We recommend the use of other batteries such as CR-V3 batteries when using the camera in conditions of low ambient temperature. When traveling overseas, taking pictures in cold climates, or when you will be taking a lot of pictures, please have extra batteries ready. You can extend battery life by switching off the LCD monitor and shooting using the viewfinder.
Battery Level Indicator You can check the battery level with the * display on the LCD monitor.

00_Optio43WR-E.book Page 15 Wednesday, February 25, 2004 1:23 PM

Using the AC Adapter

When using the LCD monitor for a long time or when connecting to your PC, we recommend using the AC adapter D-AC5 (sold separately).
Make sure the camera is turned off before opening the terminal cover. Connect the DC terminal on the AC adapter to the DC input terminal on the camera. Connect the AC plug cord to the AC adapter. Plug the AC plug cord into the power outlet.
Make sure the camera is turned off before connecting or disconnecting the AC adapter. Make sure connections are secure between the camera, AC adapter, AC plug cord terminal, and the power outlet. Disconnections while the camera is recording or reading data will corrupt your data. When using the AC adapter, be sure to read the AC adapter D-AC5 operating manual. Connecting the AC adapter will not charge the rechargeable batteries in your camera.
