I have a pentax ist DL digital SLR. The problem is that when you take a photo and try to review it the photo does not appear, it is just black. previously taken photos come up on the screen to review but...


Are you saying that on the same card, you are able to view other pictures you took but new pictures appear black? (or is this happening on different cards?)

I turn it on ,it powers up but the screen is black but the flash works and it sounds like it is takin a pic but the screen stays black


It could be that the screen has either disconnected internally or been damaged to the point that it is not showing anything anymore. The easiest way to check is to take a few random photos and attempt to download to see if the camera is taking pictures and the is just not working.
If it is taking pictures and the screen is dead you can take it in to a local repair facility for an estimate (in all likelihood it will be cheaper to replace the camera than repair it since most repairs are $75-$100 an hour with a 1 hour min).
If it doesn't download any images, then it may be trying to take photos but it is not actually taking any. This would likely indicate a larger malady. If this is the case refer to my earlier statement about repairs.

Pentax ist dl camera is working fine, but no matter what card I put in all the pictures are black and the card is not counting down all the time, starts at 400 and I'll take 20 photos and it will read 398...


Remove the lens and fire off a few shots while looking inside. Does the mirror seem to work ok? Is the shutter actually opening revealing the sensor?

My Pentax Optio S5z does not store images to SD


Copy your photos to the SD card in the camera. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5z_web.pdf p. 136
Transfer all photos to your computer from your SD card, and then put the card back into your camera. Try looking through your manual to see if there are any other settings that are required in order to save photos to the memory card.

Pink pictures


Have you tried changing the White Balance. You can access this by switching on the camera, pressing the Fn button and then the left arrow.

Deleted pictures


to delete photos, you had to have hit 'format' or 'delete'. Changing settings won't do it. IF they are deleted, they're gone. You can't un-delete photos on a camera.

Black Screen


Is there no image at all?
Or if you look carefully can you see fient images on the screen.
If you can then the back light has failed orv a oconnector has come loose.
If this is so - then try squeezing the camera body at the base of the screen- or with it switched off and the batteries out give it a sharp slap into your other hand. This may restore contacts.
If no luck - then by all means checkout a repair price with Pentax.
But it may be worth while investing in a new camera with better spec.

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 ).

Pentax option 430 camera problem


Bassie - did you resolve this? My computer recognizes the camera just fine. I have photos on my card but when I try to download to my computer, I don't see any photos. I've emailed Pentax several times w/ no help to this problem. Do you have automatic MS updates set on your machine? What Virus protection do you have? I've run into problems w/ another program conflicting w/ virus protection software.
