Some of those buttons work in combination with the two dials (i.e., setting ISO and white balance, etc.). Hold a buttin down and user the knobs simoultaneously.
If this is not the issue, please describe specifically which buttons are not workin...

Hi Keith, The link below is the user manual for the Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera, On page 56 it says
• In Green Mode, you cannot change the information displayed on the LCD monitor by pressing the 4/W button.
• You cannot use the [A Rec. Mode] menu or Capture Mode Palette in Green Mode. If you try to display the [A Rec. Mode] menu or Capture Mode Palette, - (key lock icon) appears.
• If you switched to Q mode from Green Mode, you cannot display the [H Setting] menu by pressing the 3 button. If you try to display the [H Setting] menu, - (key lock icon) appears.
• When the camera is turned off in the Green Mode, it turns on in the Green Mode next time the power switch is pressed.
THIS IS YOUR CAMERAS USER MANUAL.....CHEERS..

Rotate the mode dial to the setup mode (screwdriver and wrench) and turn the camera on. Use cursor-left/right to select Set-up2. Use cursor-up/down to select the third item (speech bubble) and press the OK button. Select the desired language and press OK.

Pentax Z10 won't turn on.


Press and hold the playback button for 2 seconds. The camera should turn on and be in playback mode. Switch to Camera Mode by opening the from slider cover. Hope that fixes it. See Pentax Z10 Manual Page 34.

Try taking out the batteries and re-inserting them after some time. If it doesnot work, most probably it is an hardware issue. Take it to the service center.

Usually this is not a problem and you will find a menu option to do this. But, in some cameras the solution is to download them the same way as the memory card by plugging in the camera to the computer. Remove the memory card, and then plug in the camera.

Optio S4i - Freezing problem on green switch


I don't know for sure, but it sounds like it could be a memory card problem. Have you tried it with another card or no card at all? My S4i froze up completely from a bad sd card. The green power button would light up, but nothing else would happen. Pentax recommends Lexar or Panasonic sd cards from what I have heard. My new Lexar card hasn't had any issues.
