Question about Pentax Optio S4 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Digital camera problem

Hello. My digital camera is actually a Pentax Optio A10. I was hoping you may know what is wrong with my daughter's camera. When she turns it in there is a white/greyish screen. We have charged the battery/camera in the cradle base and the screen continues to be the same when turned on. Also, when we try to shut the camera off it will not shut off immediately and it takes a few minutes to shut down on its own. This camera was a Christmas gift and she doesn't use it as much as she should. Could it be the battery? The battery says it is a Pentax rechargeable lithium battery. Can these batteries be purchased at any camera battery store? Thank you for your time. I appreciate it! Diane

The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label. There is a possibility it could be card fault. But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though] Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.

What is the maximum size sd card for a Pentax Optio A10? The 4 GB card is not being recognized by the camera (which I just got).


The A10 accepts SD cards, which max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card, not an SD card, and thus will not work in devices designed for SD cards. Compatibility goes only one way--SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

Pentax Optio a10 turns off automatically after I turn it on


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

When 4 gig. sd hc memory card is loaded into camera CARD IS IN ERROR msg. appears on lcd screen. Any ideas???


The A10 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work with the A10. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My camera is way to slow to take a picture


If you read the reviews on A10 it has something like 1.73 seconds shutter lag, which is very slow to some other cameras with only 0.3 shutter lag. Redeuce the pixels to 6mb. Also a weak battery and maybe a under performing m.card add to your camera seem to be slower usual.
