How to unlock a Pentax Optio W10

\015 My Optio W10 seems to randomly lock itself so that I cannot access the menu options to change any of the camera settings. I can still take pictures and view the pictures I've taken. I can also turn my flash on/off, change the drive mode, and the focus mode (the three buttons surrounding the OK button), however when I hit the Mode or Menu buttons, a yellow padlock icon is displayed on the left of the screen. Any ideas to unlock it?\015

Answers :

Press menu and the trash / delete buttons at the same time. Hold for 3 seconds until it beeps. WALA unlocked:):)
Hit mode then trash can
