Sorry we got cut off from the live chat. Here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/Optio330_IB.pdf It sounds as though you have a problem with the shutter speed, first check again all the settings are ok and normal, try reset to defaults (page 78) and see if you get any change. It could be a mechanical problem, either sticking of the mechanism perhaps due to underuse or exposure to humidity or heat, or a problem with the drive motor for the shutter - maybe a battery problem giving a low voltage to the shutter drive, or to the clock in the processor slowing the shutter down. try a few very gentle slaps of the camera see if this frees something up, take the camera for a drive in your car on fairly rough roads for a while, or putting it on top of the washing machine (make sure it wont fall off) often works well to free up a stuck mechanism. It is just possible that the screen is to blame - see if you can view a picture taken before the problem started, or with a different camera, to see if the screen is the problem. Still no luck try pentax SA direct; http://www.pentax.co.za/teltron/view/teltron/en/page95 Pentax customer service is normally excellent, and their cameras are usually worth getting fixed. Hope this helps, call me back if not :)

When i take pictures on my pentax optio s10 the pictures are coming out black but the lcd screen is working, is there anything i can do to fix this?


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

My camera is a Pentax Optio m50, and there is no image on display. It's all dark and when I take a picture, it is also dark. Help me please. I've tried all settings.

Where can I download the S-sw2 software for the Pentax Optio 330 camera?


From Pentax. There is nothing in the software that you need to operate your camera. The software only provides imaging programs that you can use to change your images. Download a program from Google like Picasso, it's free and as a rule better software.

Optio S40 white objects are pink


Sounds as though the white balance is off, check your manual on how to alter the white balance to manual - then change it back to auto. It should fix it.

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.
