I used DVDVideoSoft Free Studio. It's a free program that rotated my video 90 degrees, and I can now view the video without laying on my side to view it properly ... LOL.

Pentax optio 12 software won't download windows 8

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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.

Card unlock pentax optio

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

Camera cannot display imageon pentax optio s12

The LCD screen could be broken, this is the most common problem. You can replace it yourself, or have a camera shop do it. Get an estimate first, if you decide to have it repaired, it's often better just to buy a new camera.

My son dropped my Pentax Optio S12 now the lens won't retract and when I try to turn the camera on it just powers down and switches off

Your camera has a small chance of recovering from this very common fault: it's usually just caused by debris or dirt on the mechanism but in this case it will be either due to dislodged or broken components. You can try some of the fixes listed in this link , fix #7 is the one you're really aiming at but it's an all or nothing repair. Many retractable lens cameras have fragile zoom assemblies, but in my experience the Optio S12 has a poorer design in this respect that most and seems particularly prone to the fault.

If your camera shows absolutely no external evidence of having been dropped, then you may instead wish to see if Pentax will repair or replace it under warranty or even as a goodwill repair if just outside the warranty as it's just possible that they have identified a fault in design, materials or manufacturing of the lens unit. It would be best to say that the fault occurred out of the blue. if you choose this option, DO NOT make any attempt to fix this yourself. You also need to be aware that if Pentax judge that the fault was due to abuse (being dropped) they will offer to fix the camera at cost or will return it to you for a small fee. Given that the whole lens assembly must be replaced, and that you can buy a new replacement for around £100, you might decide that a paid repair makes no economic sense.

I sincerely hope that you get your camera working again and that you found my reply to be of use in deciding which approach to take. If so, please rate my answer.
