Question about Pentax Optio S Digital Camera

2 Answers

Pentax Optio Hi. I have a problem. I have pentax optio which was working fine but one day when I turned it on, it powered up but the screen shows grey. I tried to turned it off and on many times and it turns on and off fine but still the screen is all grey nothing else but grey color on the screen. The flash works and it blinks like it takes picture but still the grey screen. If someone knows what the problem is let meknow. Thank you so much in advance.

Re: Pentax Optio

Normally there are two reasons for the given problem. 1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or 2). shutter not working. in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD. and in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

You cannot fix this problem. Contact the local dealer or customer service to have it repaired.
For your information -
A charge-coupled device (CCD) is a device for the movement of electrical charge, usually from within the device to an area where the charge can be manipulated, for example conversion into a digital value. CCD a major technology for digital imaging.

In a CCD device, the charge is actually transported across the chip and read at one corner of the array.
An analog-to-digital converter turns each pixel's value into a digital value. CCDs use a special manufacturing process to create the ability to transport charge across the chip without distortion.
This process leads to very high-quality sensors in terms of fidelity and light sensitivity. CCD sensors, as mentioned above, create high-quality, low-noise images. CCDs use a process that consumes lots of power. CCD sensors have been mass produced for a longer period of time, so they are more mature. They tend to have higher quality and more pixels.

IF MY PENTAX OPTIO A30 is turned on a blank screen

It sounds like you need a new main board. Pentax in Arizona will replace the main board for about $135, or I will replace it for $65. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately

My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem

No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
