First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

Please help!!!! :( where do i find the RECYCLER? so i can find my deleted pics?


Well, I'm afraid that you already lost your deleted pictures. As I know so far, there are no recycler folder in cameras. Except if you already moved those pictures into your PC, and you deleted it, you can search via PC's Recycler Folder.

I'm sorry I can't help to get your pictures back.

How do you delete the photo that shows up on the start up/welcome screen?


Sometimes they (the manufactures) pack to much stuff in these cameras. Also I thought it simpler if I just did a screen shot so you could read it from the manual as I'm sure I wouldn't be able to explain this sequence well enough. What it looks like to me though is you can take a picture of something you want and use that picture as your start up screen. It also tells me you can change this when you want. Her is a link to a PDF manual for your camera.

And here is a picture of how to go about changing the start up screen, I've made it as big as FixYa will allow.

I HAVE BY MISTAKE DELETED ALL MY PHOTOS CAN I GET BACK MY PHOTOS PLEASE HELP I HAVE PENTAX OPTIO L 36 CAMERA


First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

How do i delete pictures when card is full ? help!!!!.


Hi there.
If you have copied the picture to your computer or you don't want the pictures that are on it, just use the camera's menu to format the card, that will delete all the pictures on it and it will be ready for use with the camera again.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Memory card error and deleted some saved pictures


try using another memory card. I would take the memory card back to the shop and ask for another one. I had the same problem. it was the card, not the camera.

Memory card locked!??


The card locked usually means 'protected' Check out the manual for image protection - on/off. Or put card back into computer and delete[NOT FORMAT] from there. A more comprehensive manual is usually found the the CD that came with the camera
