My Pentax Optio S5z locks itself somehow. Before it usually unlocked on it's own also. Now it is stuck on LOCK and I am not able to delete pictures, or use the MENU or MODE buttons. I am able to take pictures however. How do I Lock/UNLOCK this camera


Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the unlocked position? If so, try this...remove the card and the battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

Black Screen ive got a black screen when i take pictures; everything else on the camera works. the menu's pop up; the pictures ive taken show on review. but the actual view doesnt show anything and is completely black so whenever i take a picture its just all black. i just got this camera for christmas and it hasnt been dropped or exposed to liquid. it doesnt show a lens error number either; because i dont even think it knows it has one.. its just black though.


I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit th ... Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx


Any kind of impact can damage any digital camera. The internal components can be damaged beyond repair, the lens system can also be damaged to the point the camera will not even turn on, except for an error of some sort.

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

I have a DSC-W150 Super SteadyShot and recently I took some pictures and now it doesnt let me view the pictures on the memory stick and the screen blacks out. But if I take out the memory stick and take pictures on the internal memory it will let me view those. What may be the problem? I'd appreciate any assistance!!


On some cameras, once you activate and use the internal memory, the regular memory card no longer works properly. You need to format the internal memory with no card in the camera to get your card to work again. ... Sony Digital Cameras

My Pentax Optio 430RS seems incapable of taking more than one photo before it freezes. Powering off retracts the lens, but then it comes out again immediately, but I'm unable to take a picture.
