Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White lines, all white pictures

Hi - I have a Pentax Optio M20 and whenever I take a picture, the image comes out with white lines across it or if I take a picture outside in the sunshine or in a bright area, the entire picture comes out white - there is basically no distinguishing my photo - it looks like I took a picture of bright white paper. When you look through the viewfinder, or record a video the lines aren't there. What is wrong and how can I get it fixed? Please help me!

    My camrea is doing the same thing..White lines running thru it and very grainy. It started all of a sudden and now I can't find where the hell to return this thing. I ordered from QVC and it's been to long to return it there and they said there is not recall on it..Which I found that the image sensor is bad..Many different cameras are listed..This sucks!!

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.

Bought a second hand Pentax Optio m20 with no software and would like to download pictures to my computer.using a windows xp pro operating system.Any advice would be appreciated.Thanks John


When you hook the camera up to the usb port, windows should automatically detect it as a drive. Then you can transfer your pictures to a folder on your hard drive. Also, if you have a card reader, you can transfer pictures that way. You can order card readers on ebay or get them at Walmart or Radio Shack.

I have a problem with de softwaredisk from my Pentax Optio M20. i can do nothing with my camera. Where can i get the software for making it working?? the disk is broken


If you mean that you want to get the pictures off.
Buy a card reader...less problems, and no drivers as a rule for most operating systems including most Linux distributions.
There is no need for any of the software to be installed if you get a card reader and download a free picture editor..a number of open source programs for editing of pictures exist.

Go to the home page of your camera. Look up what you need, download it and install if necessary.

It appears you want to download pictures to the camera.
Another way to download your pictures is with a card reader at most electronics stores, including Radio Shack, Best Buy, Office Max, and so on.
