Having problems with your Pentax Optio 33LF Digital Camera ?
Won't turn on at all
\015 I have been using my camera for ages, absolutely no problems. Yesterday I went to take a photo and it bought me back a card not formatted message. It is the same card I have been using for ages. I took the card out and re-entered it and now the camera will not turn on at all. I have checked the batteries and replaced them. It just won't power up at all\015
My Optio 33LF gave the same "card not formatted" message and then shut down completely at a family party. I took it to the Pentax Canada depot which is nearby and the technician said the main circuit board was gone. A C$130 part + labour estimate = time for a new camera !
I had exactly the same problem. unfortunately Pentax doesn't provide firmware on its web site for this model
