Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?

When i turn on the digital camera it shows the initial screen for a couple of seconds (normal) the only thing different is it says green mode and than turns off by it self


Answers :

I have the exact same problem with my Pentax Optio L40.\012When I switch on, I get Green mode for 3 seconds, then it switches off again. No change when I fully charged the battery. No change when I changed for a different battery. Do I throw it away, or is there a software reboot/reset button that can somehow jump out of this?

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

When I turn on my camera in camera mode, it says memory full. I go to the middle selection to delete some photos and the camera freezes. It won't go to menu, it won't go back to camera mode or video mode. It just freezes. I can't even turn it off unless I take out the batteries. It is a Concord 4363Z model. I think it has a reset button but I am not sure how to use it. I can't find my manual for this camera. Thanks.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.
