To me it sounds like a internal problem, no different then a tv or crt monitor loosing its color. I see it alot in nintendo ds lite consoles.

ushally a blown fuse or somethings not right.

would have to be taken in to be serviced. unless your comfortable opening it up and looking around the unit.

The photo cell could be a problem. Try reset the camera by going into the menu and setting.

Pentax Optio A40 - switches on but screen is white with a purple smudge on it . Please help. Is it worth repairing ? Thanks Carol


Hello

OK, well, this sounds to me like a blown CCD. Try taking a photo, if the photo turns out the same, it is most probably a CCD.

You can take the camera to your nearest repair shop, they will be able to inform you on the exact repairing cost.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

Lense won't open


i had the same problem after letting the battery run very low. when i turn the power on, the camera beeps and turns off after a few seconds, the lens would not extend. i took it to a shop in china and they fixed it for about $25USD. i had the camera for 5 year now but it was worth $25 to get it fixed.

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately


My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.
