Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera
I gave my camera to a friend for a few days. Now that I have it back I can take photos, but the menu, 4 way controller and the display button are all locked. When I try to use these options an orange padlock appears on my screen, has anyone else had this problem? Would anyone know how I can clear this so that I can use the menu and other features. I have been through the manual and can't seem to find anything regarding this problem. What would my friend have done to create this problem? Any help would be much appreciated.

It means that the camera is in 'Green' mode. Turn off the green mode by pressing the 'Green' button (also used as the delete button when in playback mode).

Could be your friend has turned on the SD memory card lock. From page 136 of the camera manual: The SD Memory Card is write-protected. Only menu operation and mode change are possible.
