  1. Check that the LCD monitor is "ON". Press the "display" button to turn monitor on (if "OFF).
  2. If your camera is connected to a TV, the LCD monitor may remain off. Disconnect the camera from the TV to regain your LCD picture.

Could be a problem with the CCD circuitry. You will need to get it serviced, I'm afraid.

Can I use 4gb memory card in pentax optio s5i support


No. The S5i works with SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Lens won't retract.


Due to the tight tolerances inside the lense mechanism - small bits of sand or lint may become trapped in the mechanics.

It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned.

There are many small parts and intricacies that will render it totally useless if not done properly.

S5i won't turn on in Capture mode


Hi Aunty Edna. I had exactly the same problem with my S5I 4 weeks ago. Went out and bought another camera then decided had nothing to lose by doing heart segury on S5I. Found it has a watch battery soldered to board under memmory card holder which was flat. I replaced that with a similar battery and it fixed the problem. Its not an easy job but if you know someone good with there hands it would take about an hour.Hope this helps. Regards Andy
