Pentax optio S50 Digital Camera problems.

My screen won't turn on, there is no sound, it won't take pictures and won't load anything onto the computer, and we didn't do anything to harm it at all.

Re: 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.

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.

Where can i download a driver for optio s50 please

You don't need a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

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.

Pentax Optio s50 screen problem

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.

Camara won t delete photos

Is your memory card locked? It won't let you delete pictures if it is. Check the little switch on the side of the memory card and move it in the opposite direction and then see what happens. Good Luck.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error

Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
