Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera

1 Answer

View images on TV

I have Pentax OptioS5i. When i use the AV cable with the TV everything works OK, but the picture is black and white. I tried the camera with Samsung Biovision tv and a Sony tv also, the both are quite old (7-8 years old) and the both give me black and white picture. Could it be because of the tv or the problem is in the camera?

Re: View images on TV

Hi again: About the black and white pictures on the TV... not normal I think... I have never seen your camera model but a common thing can happen to any camera!! Have you already tryed to connect the camera to your TV using a AC Adapter (D-AC8 in your case)? Are the connections Ok? You're connecting following the manual instructions? If you don't have it download it... :) http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS5i_Web.pdf Regards

How do I connect my K7 to a 1394 socket


Hi,

Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:

Available Ports:

  • USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
  • Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
  • Printer interfaces: n/a

You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.

I hope this helps!

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.

Sounds like you want to do a lot of things with your camera but don't have the manual. You can download one at the support section of the Pentax website.

You can download a user manual from here:-

http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201002/20100202195655453/ES65_ES67_English.pdf

You should have a AV cable with the camera, that has 1 round plug at one end and 3 round plugs at the other.

The single end plugs into your camera, there is a socket on the side marked AV. The three plugs at the other end go intot the TV.

They are colour coded (White - audio left, Yellow - Video and Red - Audio right) you need to find three sockets on your TV which match. Once connected and a slide show running on your camera, select one of the AV tv channels on your tv remote control.

If there isn't the 3 colour coded sockets on your TV, there probably is a couple of SCART connectors on the back (Big black socket with about 20 holes) You can buy adaptors, from electrical stores, which convert your AV cable out to a scart. Its just a box with the 3 coloured inputs and a scart output.

Pentax istDS Digital Camera, How to set Custom White Balance in Auto Modes


Custom white balance can only be set in P, Tv, Av, or M modes. The auto modes are, well, automatic. They are all preconfigured and intended for ease of use not configurability.

When viewing images on TV the picture is vertically rolling.


Check the video setting in the set-up menu. It may be set to PAL if you are on the NTSC system, or vice versa. Also check the TV input to ensure your're on the correct channel.

Sorry we got cut off from the live chat. Here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/Optio330_IB.pdf It sounds as though you have a problem with the shutter speed, first check again all the settings are ok and normal, try reset to defaults (page 78) and see if you get any change. It could be a mechanical problem, either sticking of the mechanism perhaps due to underuse or exposure to humidity or heat, or a problem with the drive motor for the shutter - maybe a battery problem giving a low voltage to the shutter drive, or to the clock in the processor slowing the shutter down. try a few very gentle slaps of the camera see if this frees something up, take the camera for a drive in your car on fairly rough roads for a while, or putting it on top of the washing machine (make sure it wont fall off) often works well to free up a stuck mechanism. It is just possible that the screen is to blame - see if you can view a picture taken before the problem started, or with a different camera, to see if the screen is the problem. Still no luck try pentax SA direct; http://www.pentax.co.za/teltron/view/teltron/en/page95 Pentax customer service is normally excellent, and their cameras are usually worth getting fixed. Hope this helps, call me back if not :)
