Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please

The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

Make sure flash is on your flash on cam is sticking. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto

Unless the protector blades on the front of the lens aren't opening fully, this doesn't sound like a lens problem. It sounds more like a sensor problem. Reset is accomplished by going into the menu and finding "reset"...follow the on-screen instructi ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working. Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in.

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0. Then, I thought i might be tricky and just insert the SD card into

When I plug in my cord from the camera (Pentax Optio S5i) to my new laptop with Windows Vista I get a message saying it can't locate Pentax driver and this isn't supported by Pentax??? or something like that.  My camera is not that old.  Is there any way I can get my camera to work with Vista?  I can't even get it to recognize the camera when plugging it into the USB port so it's not a software issue.  HELP I do not want to have to buy a new camera!!!!
