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!

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.

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.

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 ).

White lines across captured image

This is a CCD issue - may be possible to be remedied at Pentax FOC - get onto the Technical Support Team.
