Re: Want take a picture
Try to reset the camera as in my other posts here in this thread on Sony problems. The reset button is under the battery door. Push the button, close the door, start the camera and reset all the settings to the way you want, including the date and time.

WOW! The little guys are fast! Mine come out blurred most of the time, unless it's outside with lots of light.
Sadly, the average digital cameras need that time delay to focus and adjust for light conditions and such. You could press the button without waiting for this, but the camera will do its own thing, like take its time to focus and adjust and then take the picture.
The Manual setting could help a bit if you always stayed at the same distance and in the same light conditions, but you'd have to preset everything. Not enough time for that, right?
Does your camera have the feature where you can take several pictures in quick succession? I have a Kodak Z712-IS and it is capable of doing it, but I'd have to use ESP to know when to start snapping pictures, and hopefully one comes out OK.
There are three main reasons for blurry pictures. Pictures may come out blurry if they're not focused properly. If some objects are sharp and others are not, this may indicate focusing on the wrong subject. This is usually not a major problem with compact point&shoot cameras since they have such a wide field of focus that almost everything will be in focus anyway. However, make sure the macro/far switch is set to the appropriate position for your picture. Subject motion. If moving objects blur while stationary objects remain sharp then the shutter speed is too slow to freeze the motion. Try switching to the sports mode, and/or add more light. Camera motion. This is the most common cause. Set your camera on a table or other stable surface and use the self-timer to take a picture. Take another one while holding the camera. Compare the two on your computer.
Your solution is to but a wid 7 compatible card reader and use the card reader to download your picture files to the computer. You will likely need new software for editing and sorting since the old pentax software is not likely to be win7 compatible.
Had the same problem with my S3 is and couldnt find any help other than to junk it and buy another camera. WAY too expensive to repair (out of warranty)
I found a post and this worked for me...just fixed it about an hour ago. Mine would show a blank screen on the LCD nothing thru the view finder other than the menu screen. Found out the shutter was stuck and that seems to be a common issue with these cameras. This is how I fixed mine.
1. set the shutter speed to the longest setting you can. I put mine on the TV setting.
2. close the flash and set turn off all of the functions you can to conserve the batteries.
3. take a picture and within 5 seconds open the battery door. Then close it back and repeat. Your trying to interrupt the shutter reset process thereby "unsticking" the stuck shutter.
4. If this fails then try LIGHTLY tapping the camera against a piece of wood, again to unstick the shutter.
Sounds like a bad idea but considering I had tossed my camera in a drawer and already replaced it, I didnt really have much to lose. I was pleasantly suprised to see that after about 15 resets (steps 1-3) and a couple of light taps, the camera is working good as new again.
The only recommendation is to correct the colour balance in a photo editor in your computer
Come back here if you do not know about photo editing.
As far as the camera is concerned there is no remedy as far as I can see -its old age time for a new one
Repair is not an option.
