Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera ?

Camera is stuck in voice record mode when I turn the camera on and I cant change it to camera mode

Answers :

I have the same problem - mine is from using the camera\015\012in the pit at a concert - I think the camera got wet to some degree. I\015\012have found a way to get to picture capture mode, but it is a workaround\015\012and not a fix.

If you hold the display button (>) in for a\015\012couple of seconds, and then turn the camera on, it will go into\015\012playback mode without the lens extending. From there, if you press\015\012display button (>) again, it will go into picture capture mode.

I'm still hoping that there is some way to fix this, but haven't found one yet.

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.

First press power button for 15 seconds .Then remove memory card from it may be your memory card has some issue.also press reeset button on camera some camera has reset button.start your camera without memory card. ... Digital Cameras

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder. Is something locked up or stuck and how do I unlock it?

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes.

I have tried all different modes and it will not move.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras
