Having problems with your Pentax Optio S Digital Camera ?

Pentax Optio S not functioning


\015 Power it up with a freshly charged Battery and green light comes on, but 75% of the time the lens will not extend. when lens does extend can get 1-2 pict off before it stops functioning. When powering down same problem getting lens to retract. New fully charged battery has done nothing to improve situation.\015

Answers :

I don't know if it would help but try to update the firmware for the camera.
I believe the Optio S firmware is limited to reading 2gb SD cards. \015\012This problem happens consistently with my 4gb or more cards, but with no SD card or a 2gb it works fine (even to the point that if you remove the large SD card while it is erroring, it will recover and work as normal) \015\012So... considering that there is no firmware update to the Optio S we are limited to 2gb SD cards. \015\012But god I still love this camera! I can live with 2gb
