S5i date problem

Just recently purchased a Pentax Optio s5i from Australia and am having a problem with the date function. Was wondering if anybody else has had the same problem, and/or any possible solutions. I try to set the date format to dd/mm/yyyy. I do this and then go to set the date, but the date still wants to be set as (and displays as) mm/dd/yyyy.

How to turn on date stamp on pentax option S5i?

The camera won't deface your photos by scrawling a string of numbers on them. Depending on the program and printer you use to print your photos, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for the program.

If you're printing directly from the camera, you can turn on the date stamp by checking the "Date" box as described in the "Setting the Printing Service" section in the camera manual (page106) in my copy.

Can a pentax optio S5i support a 8GB memory card? Do I need to download a driver to support an 8GB memory card/

No the Pentax Optio S5i does not support an 8gb memory card.

8gb would be an SDHD card, the S5i came out before SDHD so it does not support them.

Standard Secure Digital Cards come up to 4GB in size so you could use one of these. The highest standard card I have is 2gb and that is fine in mine.

My S5i locks up if you put an SDHD card in.

The only firmware update that Pentax supply does not effect this, SDHD needs different hardware.

Try taking out the batteries and re-inserting them after some time. If it doesnot work, most probably it is an hardware issue. Take it to the service center.

Camera turns on in voice recording mode only

Easiest way......check if your camera has a factory default mode. Most devices do. If yes, select it.
