Having problems with your Pentax Optio S45 Digital Camera ?

E10 and s45 same problem

\015 I have Optio 10 E10 and an Optio S45. Both are about 2 years old and will not open the lens with a fully charged rechargable battery. When I put in a fully charged non-rechargable battery the lens opens briefly but displays a battery depleted sign. Any Ideas?\015

Answers :

\015\012though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

\015\012the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)
The camera comes on momentarily and then turns back off after a beep. The batteries are brand new and we tried several new ones just in case. We believe there is a camera problem. Is there any history with this model camera? It is a Pentax Optio S45.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio

Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear
