Question about Pentax Optio Z10 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My camera is all messed up It's a Pentax Optio Z10. When I turn it on it is stuck in "Green Mode" then after a few seconds, turns off. If I press the "Playback" button it will come on and I can review pictures, but can't take new ones. When I close the slider the power stays on. I have to remove battery to shut it down. Looks like lots of other people have had this problem but I haven't seen one good solution . Please help

    Really? All these people have had this same issue and there isn't a better solution than "Buy a new camera?" It's only a year old!

  • techtradermi Mar 26, 2011

    Isn't there another solution? So many people have had this problem and the camera is only a year old

    Pentax Optio Z10 stuck in "green mode" then turns off after a few seconds. If I press and hold the playback button, it will come on and I can look at my old pictures but can't do anything else. Then when I turn it off the power stays on. Is there ANYTHING I can do other than buy a new camera?

Hi,

The problem you describe indicates that inner switch mechanism is broken that's why the camera turns off. You need to replace the inner switch so it will work properly. You need to take to near by the service center to get it repaired. It will cost you around $20-30 to replace the switch.

Hope this helps.

Capacitors are embedded in the circuits of these cameras which hold needed additional power to operate. When a capacitor gets weak the camera will offer these odd operations such as yours here. Repair cost usually outweighs the cost of a replacement camera these days

What is pentax optio z10 reset button


The reset is on the settings menu, it does not have a reset button.

To get to the settings menu press the menu button then press the right button on the controller to get to the setting menu.

When you are on the setting menu you need to go down using the down arrow on the controller to the 3rd page were the reset option is.
Press right to access the reset options then select Reset then ok.

You may need to look up how to reset your camera to factory settings. Look that up in the manual. You will not loose any pictures.
Hope this helps.

Green Mode stuck on


remove the batteries and the memory/SD card. replace the batteries first. power up the camera (this will help save your pics from possible deletion). If you can get to the menu of your camera, here is where you'll find the 'green mode'. check the settings. if its on, turn it off. after saving, reload your SD card and try to take another picture.

Pentax Z10 won't turn on.


Press and hold the playback button for 2 seconds. The camera should turn on and be in playback mode. Switch to Camera Mode by opening the from slider cover. Hope that fixes it. See Pentax Z10 Manual Page 34.
