    Self Adjust for DL, DS, DS2, K100D & K10D



    This was leaked by a korean man from the korean pentax forum! Don't know if this legal or not. The korean guy says he accidently found it by pressing buttons. Anyway do you think he accidently found this or he was working with samsung electronics and leak it?

    Anyway it's a nice to know. But i'm not brave enough to do this. Good luck to ALL!!
    COURTESY OF DPREVIEW. AUTO-FOCUS PROBLEMS WITH PENTAX.


    Here's come How-to-adjust dl, ds, ds2, k100d!!

    I can't find exact source of this, because it is wide spreaded.


    If your pentax camera scribed above have problem with focus, you can adjust it yourself.
    And Of course, You yourself is responsible for doing something scribed below.

    STEP
    1. Power OFF
    While pressing [AE-L]+[INFO], turn the camera on.
    Firmware is desplayed on LCD.
    Press [MENU]->[MENU]->[INFO] within 5 seconds.
    You can see DEBUG mode screen.
    By pressing [Right key],Make [DEBUG MODE DIS] to [DEBUG MODE EN].
    Then, Press [OK].

    2. Press [MENU], you can see setup menu.
    By pressing [Up key], select AF TEST.
    By pressing [Right key], go into AF TEST menu.
    By pressing [Down key], select FOCUS CORR.
    now you can adjust shift amount by pressing [right key] or [left key].
    (*Don't touch AF Area Test.)
    after changing the value, Press [OK] to save.
    3. Test your camera that Focus is corrected.
    (repeat step 2. till you satisfy the result.)
    4. Power OFF
    While pressing [AE-L]+[INFO], turn the camera on.
    Firmware is desplayed on LCD.
    Press [MENU]->[MENU]->[INFO] within 5 seconds.
    You can see DEBUG mode screen.
    By pressing [Right key],Make [DEBUG MODE EN] to [DEBUG MODE DIS].
    Then, Press [OK].
    5. Go out and enjoy!!

    Again, You YOURSELF is responsible for doing this process.

    FOR K10D ONLY!

    Hi,

    I have big news!

    If your K10D have problem with focus, you can adjust it yourself.

    Someone in Korea figured it out himself.

    He is not a employee of Pentax or related company.

    He just found out by trial-and-error with key-set.

    Of course, You yourself is responsible for doing something scribed below.

    Here's How-to-adjust-focus.

    1. Your K10D' firmware version must be 1.10.

    2. Test shot for focus trouble.

    3. Turn the camera OFF.
    While pressing [PLAY]+[OK], Turn the camera ON.
    You can see firmware version on LCD screen.

    4. Firmware version is appeared,
    then press [Fn]->[Fn]->[INFO]->[MENU] within 5 seconds.
    You get service menu!!!

    5. by pressing [right key]
    ,Make DEBUG MODE to DEBUG MODE .
    then press [OK].
    (save and LCD will be black out)

    6. Press [MENU] and go to SETUP tab.
    then, Press [Up key], you can see TEST MODE.

    7. Select AF TEST menu. now you have AF correction menu.
    If you have Front-focusing, reduce the value.
    If you have back-focusing, increase the value.
    after adjust some value, press [OK] and quit out of setup menu.

    8. TEST for focus, find out that focus is correct.
    (repeat this from 6 for correct focus.)
    9. Go to service menu(step 3,4).
    Make DEBUG MODE to DEBUG MODE .
    then press [OK].(save and LCD black out)

    10. Go out and enjoy nice photos!!!


    AGAIN, You yourself is responsible for any damage or trouble by doing this process!!!!!!!!!!!!!
