SOURCE: rechargeable batteries NiMH don't last long

If your batteries are new, within their first two charges, do not put to much stock in the performance you are getting. When I got my *ist D the first set of batteries I used was an old set of 2000mah Digipowers, and I was shocked. I got nearly 400 photos, lots of them with flash, and lots and lots of review on the LCD. I recently purchased some Kodak 2100mah batteries and for the first two charges could not get more than 30 pictures in either the camera or flash. They are now on the third charge and seem to be lasting much longer. I have read it takes about 5 charges for them to reach their peak performance. Also, if your batteries have been discharged by sitting in the cupboard, I understand they have to go through this conditioning again. If your batteries are older and have been continually used I might worry.

SOURCE: transfering photos from pentax optio s5i camera to p.c.

You should be able to get the software from the manufacturers website. Most manufacturers keep the software up there for free all you have to do is download. Otherwise I personally prefer to use a USB card reader. All you have to do is unplug the memory card from the camera and insert it into the reader. The computer then sees the card as a jump drive. The card reader is much easier in my mind because you don't have to learn the less than fabulous software most manufacturers use for their cameras.

SOURCE: Windows Vista!!!

There's quite a simple fix to this.

Disconnect the camera and turn it on. Press Menu and move to the the little 'tool icon' tab. Under 'USB connection', change the setting from PC to Pictbridge. Press OK. Connect your Optio to your PC and that should work.

I have got a Pentax Optio S5i and I can't download the pictures to my Windows 7. What can I do?


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Could be a problem with the CCD circuitry. You will need to get it serviced, I'm afraid.

Black Screen


Is there no image at all?
Or if you look carefully can you see fient images on the screen.
If you can then the back light has failed orv a oconnector has come loose.
If this is so - then try squeezing the camera body at the base of the screen- or with it switched off and the batteries out give it a sharp slap into your other hand. This may restore contacts.
If no luck - then by all means checkout a repair price with Pentax.
But it may be worth while investing in a new camera with better spec.

View images on TV


Hi again: About the black and white pictures on the TV... not normal I think... I have never seen your camera model but a common thing can happen to any camera!! Have you already tryed to connect the camera to your TV using a AC Adapter (D-AC8 in your case)? Are the connections Ok? You're connecting following the manual instructions? If you don't have it download it... :) http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5i_Web.pdf Regards
