Sounds like a bad microchip on the camera system board. Replace the system board.

LED flashing green and red


I had the same thing happen to me with my pentax optio. You may have to large of an SD memory card. Or you could have the wrong type of card. I would recomemd that you use a 512mb SD card. Not the SDHC card. Also i would make sure that the battaries are fully charged. Hope this helps you out!

I turn my camera on and all the icons come on the screen but the image stays black. I get playback but I cant see an image when I want to take a picture. Its as if the lens cap is still on but it isnt. I...


Your camera is going to have a sensor that lets it know if the image cap is on or not, its possible the sensor might be damaged, or pressed in, or stuck.

My camera freezes


This camera supports only 512 mb sd card. If you use any bigger, it freezes. Tried with 1 gb and 2 gb and freezes, while 512 is just fine for the size of the pics of this baby.

Pentex Optio W30 turns on but black screen for 5 secs & turns off


Try a new battery first, much less costly.

A fairly common problem with "underwater" cameras is that the sealing surfaces that are supposed to keep the water out fail to some degree due mostly to lack of cleanliness when the camera is closed up. It takes VERY LITTLE salt water inside a delicate electronic device to wreak all sorts of havoc.

Look carefully inside the camera for any sign of salt deposits or corrosion. If you see that, the camera is likely toast or at least in need of a repair job that likely will cost more than a newer camera.

Good luck!

Optio S4i will not turn on?


Your problem is part of the dreaded A90 error code these cameras get. My camera had this last year and updated firmware cured it till this month when my wife let the battery go dead and the problem returned, but firmware update won't fix it this time around.Go to Pentax site and download new firmware for camera. Follow instructions that come from Pentax on the download to install software. Its pretty easy. These are cheap cameras as far as Pentax is concerned. They only work for about 2 years, based on other users and my experience. Good luck

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.
