Question about Pentax Optio S Digital Camera
I've pulled up the white screen with the on+menu+focus buttons - screen reads:
++ KB359 ++
I tried the next sequence of buttons; however, once the ok button is pushed, the camera shuts down with the lens still in the out position.
My S4, which admittedly is 4-5 years old and looks it, has given me intermittent problems for 2 years or so with the lens sticking out. I have always been able to fix it by power cycling.
However, recently it seemed there was nothing I could do andI was getting ready to junk it and buy another one. Then I searched online and I was able to fix it. I knew nothing about MENU+ON or MENU+FLASH+ON sequences (are there others you know about)?
Anyways, I got the hint from a post which suggested this sometimes happens when the battery is swapped while the power is on. I was fiddling with a bunch of things when I think what fixed it was this sequence:
1. remove battery
2. hold down MENU (or possibly MENU+FLASH; I was trying both)
3. insert battery
Now, my fault was such that the power always seemed to be on when the battery way in. If this isn't the case with yours, then you may need to hold down POWER ON as well in step 2 (which might mean 3-4 hands required).
Things went back to normal after that.
Hope this helps you.
