Pentax Optio 60 Picture Error

I took some important pictures several days ago, and now when I go to look at them the screen is black and says "Picture Error" where they used to be. I really need to retrieve them! Any help is appreciated! Thank you.

    Yes, I have an Illuminations Travel/MMC Card Reader. When I look through the pictures on the computer, the lost photos don't show up at all!

    Yes, the photos which I can view on the camera show up, but not the lost (picture error) pictures.

  • rachelsheeha Jun 22, 2008

    Each time I try to copy the files, a box comes up saying the folder or directory is corrupted or unreadable...!

    The memory card is 256 MB.

    I have copied the files to a separate folder. How do I re-format the card and check for errors? Thanks!

    There could be something going on whith the card. Copy all the files from the card to a seperate folder on your computer. Remove the card from the computer and reformat the card and check for any errors on the card while formatting it.

    What size is the memory card?

No picture in the view finder it's just black.

After you took a picture you have to press the > button, to view the picture. I can't find any setting so the camera will show each picture after you took it.
There is a short version of the manual online.

I have wo black bands across the screen on my Pentax Option 550

have you tried changing the camera's settings back to default? in the camera's menu, find 'reset settings' or 'factory settings' or something like that to reset the camera settings.. you might have messed with some settings, otherwise it may be hardware failure, may be the LCD of your camera.. hope not so.. lol

If properly captured pictures can be played back fine ( quality is ok ) but images look 'noisy' i.e. color and resolution not what it should be then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. Ask Pentax if they do this model with this problem free of charge ( most manufacturers repair CCD problems free of charge ).

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem

No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
