Question about Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have wo black bands across the screen on my Pentax Option 550

I have two black horizontal bands running across the viewing screen and on any picture taken with my Pentax Optio 550. It's like viewing through a letter box. Any ideas what the problem might be, the camera has had very light use since being purchased new about 4 years ago.

Have you tried changing the camera's settings back to default? in the camera's menu, find 'reset settings' or 'factory settings' or something like that to reset the camera settings.. you might have messed with some settings, otherwise it may be hardware failure, may be the LCD of your camera.. hope not so.. lol

I need help identifying if I have some banding issues on my TV. I notice with dark colors, they tend to bleed out horizontally across the screen. Do I need to replace a board?


First thing to check is if the problem happens in all inputs or just one or two. If it happens on all the inputs then it is a t-con board.

Why has my sanyo flat screen television only got coloured horizontal lines across the screen?


That might be an issue with the TVs picture tube if it was not one of the LED or LCD TVs. Please get a technician changed it. If it was any one of the LCD or LED TVs, then it would be more expensive than you expect.

PENTAX Optio 60


If properly captured pictures can be played back fine ( quality is ok ) but images look 'noisy' i.e. color and resolution not what it should be then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. Ask Pentax if they do this model with this problem free of charge ( most manufacturers repair CCD problems free of charge ).

Optio 550


My 550 developed the same problem in 2005. I found mentions online about wiring coming loose from the circuit board due to heat exposure. Some felt it was a defect Pentax should have fixed free, others admitted they may have left the camera in hot cars, etc. I got a new camera but always wanted to get the 550 fixed as it is a really sweet camera when it was working. Brokencamera.com says they can fix for between $70-$100. I think I'm going for it.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
