Question about Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pentax problems... Hey there. I'm having problems with my pentax camera. The camera actually works great, but, I can't sync it up with my computer. The software that came with it is not working with my pc. When I hook up the usb cable to connect the two, it never recognizes the device. I have a dell inspiron that's only about 6 months old. It has windows xp on it. I've never had problems installing a device before. I tried to add the hardware manually, over and over again with no luck. I heard someone tell me to unistall my printer, and then try to install the camera. That didn't work either. I would appreciate anything you could do to help me. Thanks. Will Felder

Best thing about this camera is it works great. The worst thing is the factory will not fix or help you get it repaired. They are a very great camera when they work but have a very bad history of failure that is cheaper to throw away and buy a Sony! For the price Sony is a Great Camera and just keep getting better!

I Have PENTAX MX, With lens for this camera. Can i buy a new digital PENTAX, that might fit, these same lens?

One of the great things about Pentax's digital cameras is their lens compatibility: You can use any Pentax lens made since 1975. But the functionality varies from the oldest lenses to the newest. This guide shows what features work with each lens series and what to beware of when buying third-party lenses.

Bad USB conection?

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 Picasa.

Pentax Optio A30 - turns off when I zoom in

This might sound a bit silly, but as I have posted earlier I had a similar problem As soon as he lens came out ready to take pictures it retracted and turned off. Because i haave decided to buy another camera I held the Optio in my right hand and banged it into the palm of my left hand. No great shock to the camera, but hey presto it now works. Not sure if I can rely on it though......what does anyone else think about this?

Pentax Optio M20

But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.
