Question about Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

SD memory prohibits functioning of Pentax E30

I have a Pentax Optio E30, when I install a sd card the unit powers on with PENTAX OPTIO screen showing but will not function. When I remove the SD card (3 different SD's have been tried) the camera will function properly. The SD cards are not new but do work in my Nikon camera. Do I need a new SD unformatted? I deleted all pictures from the SD's but still no luck.
Please advise if you know what to do. Thanks

I know that usually, you should format the card for the camera that your going to use. Try formating it in the camera and see if that works. Let me know if I can do anything else for you,

Pentax Optio M30- How do I transfer pictures from the internal memory onto an SD card??


this model not support it, To do that, you need to connect to pc and transfer it. As long you inserted the SD card, IT will use memory from SD card and not display image, video from built in memory.
if you want to delete file in built in memory, you need to remove memory card.

I have purchased a 4GB SD-HC memory caard for my pentax optio s6. when istalled the card, the screen was turned on ok, but could not perform any function. Few minutes later a "memory card error"...


The Optio S6 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

The memory card on my pentax optio camera is locked. a yellow key appears. i found the display showing the key but cannot find the function to unlock it


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My Pentax Optio S5z does not store images to SD


Copy your photos to the SD card in the camera. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5z_web.pdf p. 136
Transfer all photos to your computer from your SD card, and then put the card back into your camera. Try looking through your manual to see if there are any other settings that are required in order to save photos to the memory card.
