Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5n Digital Camera ?

Pentax s5n No Display Problem

\015 Hi, \015\012\015\012\015\012I have owned my Pentax S5n for about a week now and I have come accross a problem.\015\012\015\012The steps to cause it occur as follows: \015\012\015\0121 Turn on Camera. \015\0122. Go to Movie Mode \015\0123. Switch off Camera. \015\012\015\0124. When I turn the camera on, there is no display information. The camera has the lcd running with the image from the lens but there is no information on the lcd screen and the buttons do not work (so you cannot change it out of movie mode).\015\012\015\012Pulling out the batteries and/or the memory card make no difference. \015\012\015\012\015\012To answer my own question. I found a way around the problem by total chance. I turned the camera on while holding the menu button after playing with it for about 30 minutes trying everything I could think of. The lcd starts with a black screen with the 'ver 1.00' and then starts correctly showing the movie mode. If anyone else is stressing, I have no idea what I am doing so try so at your own risk!\015\012\015\012Can anyone tell me if: \015\012a) They are having the same problem \015\012b) What I am actually doing to get the camera working \015\012\015\012c) If this is not just me, If Pentax is aware of this problem and if there is likely to be a fix at some time.\015

Ive got the s5n and dont have the same problem. \015\012\015\012Maybe you should return yours. \015\012\015\012\015\012Btw what software are you using to edit your videos and have you found a good way to play them through your dvd player in mpeg-4 or another format?

When ever I turn on the camera, the display shows "card locked". I can hit the > button and it appears to unlock it, since pictures now show up. But, whenever I try to do anything else it locks back up again. How do I fix this problem? This is for a Pentax Optio S60 digital camera.

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
