Having problems with your Pentax Optio W30 Digital Camera ?

I dropped a pentax optio W30. Upon inspection it

\015 I dropped a pentax optio W30. Upon inspection it looked a little 'swollen'. I took out all the screws, popped out the interior to take a look and put it back together. Inside looked okay, except a few plastic holding pieces for screws were broken and a small hook on the mother board was detached near the button for shooting pics. DO you think it is fixable? Now that I put it back together nothing happens.\015

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.


It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in A ... Pentax Optio A20 Digital Camera

Exposure Control I have an Optio S6 that I accidentally dropped into a building's girder while doing Kite Aerial Photography. From that point on I've gotten very poor exposures. Out at a beach the photos were totally black. There are only some small nicks right above the flash, but my guess it was a pretty good hit. I took it to a Pentax Repair Center but the cost of repair equalled the cost of a new camera. I hate to just throw it out, any suggestions?
