Pentax Optio s50 screen problem

Hi, i was taking a photo last time and then suddenly i couldn't see anything on my screen. I tried to check if it is only the screen that has a problem but when I tried to take photos it doesn't take anymore photos. I don't know what's the problem and how it will be fixed. Hope you could help me. Thanks, Joan

If no error code on the LCD screen, then you have either very weak batteries or a bad CCD problem/malfunction. One way to test the batteries is plug in your AC/DC source and try to turn on your camera again and try taking some pictures. Also make sure you have a memory card present in the camera. If it works, then it was the batteries. If it still doesn't work, then its the CCD. Time for repair.

Can the date be printed on the photos?


Hi, I found this on the Pentax website.
It looks like you cannot print the date directly from the camera but you can do it using other options.

This is usually because the USB cable is shorting. Looks like an issue with the internals of the camera

ASAP HELP!!


No setting neeed. You just have to plug in the cord from camera to computer then turn the camera on and it should automatically start up transferring with ACDSee program. The camera has to be on to download photos.
Alternatively you can plug in camera, turn it on then open my computer, select drive the camera is plugged into then copy the files over to my documents.

Day time photography


Could be a camera problem but it's possible that your hand or part of a straying finger may be covering the sensor on the front that tells the camera what the exposure is in full auto mode. You'll need to do some test shots making sure there's noting in the way. It could be that the sensor is failing, maybe put the camera into fully manual and take a shot a about 125th of a second at f16 on a bright, sunny day to see if the camera responds with a good image. A good source of information is the manufacturers web site, there may be a firmware download that could fix the problem. Good luck with it.

Pentax optio S50 Digital Camera problems.


So other than that, how does it work? Since its not taking pictures, nor turning on either. I'm thinking it has to do with the camera power supply. Sometimes simply taking the batteries out and wiping the contacts off has been enough to get mine going again.

Major blurring/sharpness problem with Pentax Optio 50; help!


Thanks for posting the photos.....they tell a lot. You need to return that camera and get a refund. The camera is defective. The first two photos were taken under good lighting conditions and you should have gotten good shots. The last two were taken at low light and the camera was using 1/30th of a second shutter speeds which could account for some blurring due to camera movement. The last one appeared to be a flash shot and it selected 1/30th second. Not a good thing for the camera to do. But all photos have the appearance that you are shooting through a fog. And all photos were shot with an ISO setting of 200. There is something wrong with this camera for that to happen on the first two shots. I checked the EXIF data that is embedded in the photos. That gives you the shutter speed, aperture setting and focal length, ISO settings, and other information. I have not seen a review of the Pentax Optio 50. But the older S50 did not get good reviews. If I were you, I would look for a different brand of camera. For a few dollars more you can get a Nikon 5600.
