Question about Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera
My Pentax Optio s5Z wont take pictures. When you turn it on, the screen shows whatever you're pointing the camera at, just like you were recording a video or something, but it's completely unresponsive when you push ANY buttons. Anyone have any answers?
I also had this problem. I think it is caused when the camera is turned off while in the viewing part of the camera. That is, I had gone to look at the video that I had just taken, but didn't and then turned the camera off. The camera is then as you have described it.
The only way I could get it back to normal is to connect the camera to the computer, using the cable, and download the photos and videos. When the download is complete, disconnect the camera and it should be OK.
Good luck, cheers. Phil
