    No image, just squiggly lines. Warranty station says not covered under warranty. Cost $130 to replace....not worth the fix, will buy another brand instead.

This happened to TWO pentax optios I have had (s4 and w10) so I am officially giving up on Pentax all together. I guess I will go for the new Olympus 770sw which is also crush proof!

I've seen LCDs forA30 are sold via eBay.
In youtube there's a video of replacing the LCD in other Optio model.

I have the problem and I'm going to try it by myself. I'll let you know if it worked.

Display went white - we were using the camera and turning off and on and we turned the camera on and the LCD was white - camera still takes pictures but no display


your screen is broken, pentax made this lcds really shity, I changed 2 lcds, looks like they broke itself. I worn my camera in jacket, pull it out to make a great shot, and then - wtf is this? Oh God. I brought a camera to service, they took 100$. Then again. camera was in my bag on some cloth. opened a bag to make a nice shot, but WTF it cant be. Brought it to service, again 100$. I said no more. Gave a camera to my sister for a trip. when she come back, and mentioned a camera, I just knew what happened. AGAIN lcd broken. I hate pentax, service and this shity lcds. you don't have to agree with me, but they are ****. There's other problem with this camera, optio a40. It's great actually, but auto-zoom is the worst I ever seen. So many times I found great shot, ready, click, then camera focused on some **** and not on my beloved scene. to make a conclusion, this camera sucks. there are better models like panasonic lumix. I think that I'll buy one soon.

Pentax Optio A40 - takes pictures but cannot see them on the screen. There is no viewer window so difficult to see if a picture is taken


If you are saying that the screen never works, then it is simply a broken LCD screen. 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.

Have a faulty Pentax, lens comes out beeps then goes back in, in addition the screen is broke. Is the lens problem related to the screen.


The lens problem is NOT related to the screen. A broken screen will not affect the lens, and you can still take pictures even with a broken LCD screen. The lens problem is either a bad lens assembly or a bad main board. It is almost always a bad lens assembly. I can replace the lens assembly AND LCD screen for a total of $85, or Pentax will do it for about $180. In my opinion, it is not worth fixing. If you want to sell this camera, contact me at: mrfixitmark at comcast dot net
I can use this camera for parts.

Problems uploading video on Pentax Optio A30.


if you dont have a codex on your computer (if you're using windows media player) you wont be able to play your videos because this is a requirement for most of the newer pentax.
read your manual for more details
