Question about Pentax Optio M30 Digital Camera

Pentax Optio M30 will not stay on

My Pentax Option M30 will not stay on in camera mode. It comes on, the lens zooms out, then back in, and the camera shuts off. Plyaback mode works fine, and the menu is accessible from playback mode. For those experiencing a similar problem, you can turn your camera on in playback mode if you hold down the playback buttton while turning the camera on. You can access the complete menu from there, but there's nothing in it that helps with camera mode problem.

The same thing happened with my camera, I gave it to a freind for her husband to look at it. He said when turning on face the lens side down (to the ground) when turning off hold lens side up right (to the sky). this worked for mine. I don't know if he did anything else to it but when I zoomed I got lens error. I did what he said and it took several tries but it did work... please post if this helps you.

Make sure your battery is charged and if so, take it back to the place you bought it from.

Pentax Optio M30- How do I transfer pictures from the internal memory onto an SD card??


this model not support it, To do that, you need to connect to pc and transfer it. As long you inserted the SD card, IT will use memory from SD card and not display image, video from built in memory.
if you want to delete file in built in memory, you need to remove memory card.

Dropped the camera and it won't stay on


You've likely damaged the lens tube or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Unfortunately there is no DIY fix for either problem -- the camera will require professional repair.

I have a pentax m30 camera. The lens tilted while retracting. Now stuck. Any Ideas would help. Thanks


Did the camera fall?
Try to take out the battery and start again. Do not use too much pressure with hand otherwise you could damage the retractor motor or gear.

Unless you familiar with opening small screw, it is best advised to take it to the nearest Pentax service center. You might damage it more.

Lens does not retract


I'm looking for a solution to this too. The repair is going to cost more than the camera did. SUCKS!!!
