My Pentax Optio T20 camera switches on ok, but .....

My Pentax Optio T20 camera switches on ok, the screen lights up and all functions are working, but 1 second later the screen switches off and won't come come back on again. The camera will still take pictures and videos, but the screen is off so you can't see what you are taking the picture of, so you point it at the wrong place. It did this 2 years ago so I left it swithed off with the battery out, and some weeks later it started working ok again. Where can I get a new firmware program that might fix this?

Regards
Alan R

TENGO UNA CAMARA PENTAX OPTIO E-35 Y AL ENCENDERLA ME MUESTRA UN CANDADO QUE NO ME DEJA USAR EL MENU, QUISIERA ME DIJERA QUE DEBO HACER PARA DESBLOQUEARLA


Its possible that your have locked the SD card; remove the memory card from the camera and make sure that the physical switch is in the "UNLOCK" (up) position. See photo example...

Camera wont turn on!! help!!


Dear Texaslilly,
Although there is nothing much to do but you can still try the following.
  1. Try with different set of batteries
  2. Remove the memory card from the camera
  3. Cameras generally do have an option to plug-in external power supply..Try with external power supply .. if there is any.
  4. Now this might sound little crazy but no harm in trying .... Remove batteries... Press and hold the power button for few seconds... release the power button ... reinsert the batteries and try to power on without memory card.
Try the above and let me know if it works.

Regards,
Srinivas.

SD memory prohibits functioning of Pentax E30


I know that usually, you should format the card for the camera that your going to use. Try formating it in the camera and see if that works. Let me know if I can do anything else for you,

Unlock Pentax Optio S5z


I had the same problem with the exact same camera (Pentax Optio S5Z) that happened the same way. I searched everywhere on the web and finally found this post that didn't have a solid solution. So I started experimenting with different button combinations and finally figured it out.

Hold the OK button while turning on the camera. The screen should indicate that it is in audio record mode. Now press the Menu button and use the navigation keys to find and execute the system reset option.

After turning it off and back on it should function normally.

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately


My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.
