Question about Pentax Optio S5n Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cracked lcd Hi, I have a Pentax Optio S5n with a cracked lcd display. Apart from that the camera works fine. I have been looking on ebay for a faulty camera for spare but no luck as yet. There is however a Pentax Optio WP with the same size lcd. Would this do the job or would it have to be an exact model? Thank you!

In most cases the LCD is slightly different on most models of cameras. If there are only slight differences between models in the same line such as the megapixel rating or the internal memory the part may cross over. Models of the same camera from different production years also usually cross. I would say that VERY rarely does an LCD part cross over between model lines. Search online for a camera repair facility, you may be able to find one who would be willing to sell you the part. Be forewarned that replaceing the LCD is not always a straight forward process and there is always a chance of harming the camera in other ways while you try to fix it.

It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona, and they will fix it for about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras. Contact me at: mrfixitmark at comcast dot net

If you are handy with very small parts, you can replace the display yourself, and you can buy them on eBay for about $25.

Screen damage


I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts. You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N


The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.
