Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Optio s6 frozen

My optio s6 froze up as i was extracting an image from a movie, using the built-in editing features.
it froze as it said 'saving extracted data' (or something like that), with lens extended.
camera would not respond to any buttons being pressed.
i let it run out of battery, just in case it was just taking a really long time to perform this simple task.
i haven't recharged yet, to see if this will reset the camera, but if you know about this problem, please let me know.

camera froze up. lens sticking out. won't turn on or off. changing batteries did not help.

By recharging the battery, and then restart the camera, it may just work.

Because you were working on a movie in the camera at the time it quit, that file may be corrupted.

It would be interesting to see what has happened on this problem.

    Hello bbrown3333:
    I did minimal research on the NET and found that this camera has a freeze-up problem. Some of the problems have to do with the LCD and others.
    Here is one which shows that this is really a problem:

    Time maybe to return the camera (if you can) and get another one which is working.

Can i put date on pictures


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I ahve the pentax optio s6 camera. the camera


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem


Sounds like the LCD is faulty, but there are a number of things that can cause the LCD to play up too

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Optio S4i - Freezing problem on green switch


I don't know for sure, but it sounds like it could be a memory card problem. Have you tried it with another card or no card at all? My S4i froze up completely from a bad sd card. The green power button would light up, but nothing else would happen. Pentax recommends Lexar or Panasonic sd cards from what I have heard. My new Lexar card hasn't had any issues.
