The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

SOURCE: Pentax Optio A10 lcd replacement

I bought my parts from Pentax Imaging Co. for 59.73 + tax + shipping: Part Number 76650-0500 Tel 1 800 877 0155. I am willing to sell this lcd for 55+ ~ ($7 shipping in USA only) because I now have other problems with the camera. LCD is like new condition. (contact: magee.silas@gmail.com)

I pulled on the power wires to disconnect the LCD power supply and broke the black one at the connector. I was able to pull the old wire out of the connector and press the remaining section of wire into the connector securely and fix the mistake (use tweasers to prevent this).

As for the LCD information connector strip: Take all of the tape covering this connector off before proceeding because then you will be able to see and use the connector "gate". the gate pivots upward to allows you to place the connector strip in place then you can gently push the gate down to lock the connector strip in place. I tried sliding the connector in and it did not work. Instead it gave me a red screen. I did install my LCD, turned the camera on and it worked, Then...

After dissasembling the camera more that nessesary to be able to insert the menu board's connector strip back into place the camera failed to turn on. I have not found and dissconnected wires and suspect Electrical Shock Discharge for the failure.

If you try this procedure wear a grounding ******** your wrist, or take off the minimum nessessary to preform the work( backplate, sideplate near lense only). You do not need to remove the menu display panel to connect the lcd panel information strip, just remove the tape covering the connector.

SOURCE: what is the maximum size sd card for a Pentax

The A10 accepts SD cards, which max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card, not an SD card, and thus will not work in devices designed for SD cards. Compatibility goes only one way--SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

SOURCE: Pentax Optio a10 turns off automatically after I turn it on

It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Ok here it is open the camera and re insert the fine lcd ribbon into is holder problem solved. Your camera must have had a sharp knock to dislodge the lcd screen and pulling out the ribbon. Worked for me.
