Just had the same problem (black display). I moved my hand in front of it and took pictures of things but nothing happened. Then my girlfriend tried to point it to a lamp, and all-of-a-sudden it kinda woke up from a screensaver or something. So weird, but it worked. Perhaps it needs enough light in order to start using the display and lens. I couldn't take any pictures when the LCD was black. So, try pointing it towards a strong light source before you break your camera.

Monitor shows white out screen


You can try firmaware update (below link) if available for your model.

But the reason could be also the LCD screen connector inside the camera. So it may need service.

Optio 330gs Windows 7 compatibility?

You also might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

Forget all that. If all you want to do is download your pics from your camera, use a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop.

The best way to use is to get a free program from Adobe website or Kodak. That can transfer your pictures from your camera to your computer.

Check the manual throughly- usually there is a more comprehensive manual on the CD- to ensure all the correct setting are made. Other wise this is a flash failure[lamp or capacitor] Take a look at the Pentex technical support site.

Pentax Optio 330GS its gone blind!


You've probably got something as simple as a ribbon cable loose in the camera. Beware though, dismantling is a serious task unless you have experience. Amazingly the CCD is often connected in such a simple, analog-esqe, way that disconnecting it doesn't cause an error, just a black screen.

Pentax Option 330GS problem turning on


Sounds like the images are corrupted on the card. If you have another card then try starting the camera with it. To get the card working again, you will need to format it in a card reader with FAT16 format, or try in another camera. If you want the images, you will have to obtain repair software to try to retrieve the images.

Color shift problem with 330GS


This is because the RGB filters in the camera are not perfect, and there is no one "green" colour. The green pixels pick up a wide band of colours, and are somewhat sensitive even to red and blue, especially near where green shades into red.

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.
