If it's like mine just was, it's probably stuck in green mode. If that's the case, just hold the delete button for a bit and it should go away and allow menus again.

In the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

    I followed both solutions for this question. If I hold the delete button, the green mode will not go away and when I select the reset button it will not reset. What else should or can I do?

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.

I can't access my menu, a lock icon appears on the screen for a Pentax Optio M10 Camera


your menu's locked (yellow icon) if it's in green mode. exit the green mode, and you'd get your menu back.

just fyi, since i helped my dad troubleshoot his cam (same model as yours) a while back.

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,

Pentax Optio M20


Found the following on a website about these cameras...
http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/content/Pentax-Optio-M20-Digital-Camera-Review/Modes.htm
"The second, and previously mentioned automatic mode, is the Green mode that restricts the camera controls to two flash settings, three AF options, zoom, and a self-timer setting. This mode locks out the menu systems, manual focus, mode menus and other options. It’s definitely easy to use, as all one can really do is point and shoot."

This may be a internal software confusion problem. If it is, the following may help.
Make sure your buttons or dials are not on AUTOMATIC, that appears to set the green mode.
I think I would remove the batteries. Next, if the camera has a small battery (similar to the bios battery in computers) remove that as well. Let the camera sit over night. You will need enough time for the capacitors to discharge. Then put the batteries in again, and try.

Symbol of a lock


I had the same problem - try this. Switch to playback mode by hitting the play button. In playback mode try the menu button (It worked for me). In the settings scroll down to the reset option and reset all camera settings.

Hope this works for you
