Question about Pentax Optio A20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.

It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona, and they will fix it for about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras. Contact me at: mrfixitmark at comcast dot net

If you are handy with very small parts, you can replace the display yourself, and you can buy them on eBay for about $25.

My pictures are coming out dark even when it is a bright day I have a pentax Optio A20


Try increasing the ISO to mid levels, toggle with the picture settings till you get normal, maybe try a nighttime setting.

The viewfinder does not display anything


Hi!
The display is broken. They are not repairable, only replacable. You should contact your local Pentax service center. Small repair shops could do it too, as new displays are available on eBay.
Hope this helps!

Screen damage


I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts. You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

I have pentaxA20 digital camera , i have facing very major problem that it is showing white display while capturing pics?


I am assuming that the screen is always white, meaning yuo can't see the menu, and also can't see pictures you have taken. If this is true, then you need a new LCD screen.
