Yes, there is a way to retrieve photos from your Pentax camera.

Chances of recovery can be high as long as you act as soon as possible and stop using the digital camera to take more photos or videos, also keep the camera memory card in good shape (no physical damage).

Then you can rely on a digital camera data recovery software to get the job done and retrieve your photos. Here shows a list of good ones (for PC/Mac) http://www.digital-camera-recovery.com/

You'll need to connect the camera (mass memory card) to your computer. Then install the program to start scan & recover your files. Should be easy to get back your lost memories!

Have you written anything new on this digital camera?
In fact, in your case, anything mew on the same camera can rewrite your original photos and make them gone permanently. So, I hope you have not done it yet.
Right now, what you should is to restore all your deleted photos back as below:
Step1. Stop using this camera till all your wanted photos have restored back successfully.
Step2. Insert this camera to your computer and prepare to restore your photos.
Step3. Download a deleted photo recovery freeware to your computer and start to retrieve all your deleted photos back:
http://blog4mark.blogspot.com/2012/12/photo-recovery-after-delete.html
In fact, this freeware has ever successfully saved all the inaccessible data of my friend off from his camera. So, I believe it can also work successfully on your camera memory card, too.
Simply read more information of this freeware here:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/photo-recovery.html
Step4. Save and back up all the restored photos on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
Note: Next time, you'd better back up all your important photos on different memory cards or drives in case of the similar data recovery problems.

Does the camera work with any other card? Was the card formatted in the camera? Some cards from some manufacturers just don't work in some cameras.

SOURCE: what is the "card locked" ? when the camera comes

Your memory card is an SD type. These cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Recovering deleted photos


Hi,

If these photos were formatted from a memory card and not from the internal memory of the camera, there is a reasonable chance of recovering them.

Please have a look at this FixYa Tip which outlines the possible solutions.

Thanks.

Can't take image with my optio mx4


I had this on mine, and after searching on the internet concluded it was a problem with the lens assembly. Taking the view that I could not lose, I disassembled the camera, which is probably not advisable. The problem I think was fixed, by gently tapping the front of the camera on the silver lens surround with the handle of the knife I used to undo the screws. I did this on repeated switch on, and after a fair number of times, the lens moved and the camera came back to life.... Re assembly was a bit tedious, but I was left with no screws or extra parts!!. One working camera and one happy son who has been using it for skate board video ing.
