Having problems with your Pentax Optio S50 Digital Camera ?

Flash Whenever I take a picture, no matter what mode it's set to, the flash will not turn off. I looked through the manual and found nothing. How do you turn flash OFF?


Answers :

Where the OK button is there is a circle around it. On the left side there is a pic of a flash. You have to turn on camera then turn off flash by pressing the button on the left (flash) til your display shows a flash with a circle around it in the top left corner. Now the flash will not come on.

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

I have a Canon sd630.The camera works great except that it won't remember its settings. Upon turning on the camera,it would say it's in manual mode, but if I change it to automatic and then turn it off. It would be back in manual mode again. I have reset the camera and even taken apart to replaced the internal battery. Still no luck. Appreciate any help. f.y.i I have tried looking for a firmware update, but no luck either. I was wondering if I could flash my camera with the sd500 firmware? I ju

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?


Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. ... Kodak EasyShare CX6200 Digital Camera

Memory First of all I found that the instruction manual wasn't very informative... it covered the basics but nothing on memory or if it needed to be charged before the first use. It just says to go ahead and turn it on so I assumed that meant it came charged? My main question is the box says that there is up to 9 hours recording on my jazz 179 camcorder and I was recording on christmas day and it said that the memory was full after not even 5 min.? I dont have a SD card but in the manual it says


Ok, here's the deal...\015\012\015\012The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the avai ... Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

I can't seem to turn the flash on my Nikon D70 on! I've been playing around with it for hours and have read through the manual. I've followed the steps clearly, but nothing is working. The previous owner never used the built in flash. Is it possible he put some sort of lock on it???

I switched flash card and camera was not ssnapping pics. It was focusing just not taking pics. Later found bent pin so I carefully used a tweezer to straighten. All looks well but now camera won't even turn on. Is there some sort of reset?

I recently bought a Ricoh Caplio RR770 digital camera. I have found that many of my images have a grey bar covering the bottom 20% of the pictures. Not all of them turned out this way, but a fair ammount which pretty much makes the pic useless when trying to post. This is very annoying and I have no idea how this happens or how to remedy it. I know the pics themselves are fine because after I took them, I looked at them and there was nothing wrong. Only when I upload the image somewhere does thi

My Nikon Coolpix 4600 will take 1 photo, then refuses to take anymore unless it's turned off and then turned back on. When first turned on the flash and AF LEDs go on. After 1 photo is taken, the flash and AF LEDs won't come on. Pressing the shutter release does nothing. There are no alerts or other red indicators on the screen. The batteries are new.


I visited a brick-and-mortar camera store and asked a repair specialist. There I learned that the problem with my camera is a firmware problem and not worth fixing. I'll throw away the camera and buy another $150 disposable camera. ... Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera
