When i take pictures on my pentax optio s10 the pictures are coming out black but the lcd screen is working, is there anything i can do to fix this?


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

How do you use the self timer?


Press cursor-up and then use cursor-left/right to select the desired self-timer mode and press the OK button. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual. Full details are in the "Using the Self-timer" section on page 67 of the manual.

Shutter issue


I experienced the same problem and took the camera in for repair - I was told the problem was with the motor on the zoom drive which had to be replaced. The shutter cover has worked fine ever since. Repair cost was about $150
