20 Most Recent Pentax Optio M50 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

if you are getting lines on screen and photo then there is probably something wrong with the sensor.
If it was just the screen its dead pixels in the screen. Unlikely to be a foreign body, eg hair or dust, inside as there is no way to open this camera up like a dslr.
to test this just take a photo of a plain grey card, and check the result.

Not even when you press the display button several times? how can you see what you are framing?
Do you have pictures on the memory card? if not, the sensor is defect. (or the logic board, but both can't be repaired for less than a new camera will cost)

How old is the battery? The camera will exhibit this behavior if the battery voltage is too low. The battery is likely undercharged, old and unable to hold a charge or the contacts are dirty. Carefully clean them with a pencil eraser, taking care not to leave debris in the battery bay.

After you took a picture you have to press the > button, to view the picture. I can't find any setting so the camera will show each picture after you took it.
There is a short version of the manual online.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.Download this photo recovery software called asoftech photo recovery

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Yes. There's an "Image/Sound Copy" command in the playback menu.

Be aware that if you've done any editing at all on a computer (opening a picture in a picture editor and then saving it without doing anything counts as editing) then the camera may not display it.

try this remove SD card from camera, put it into a SD USB converter, use this on the PC and Format the SD card FAT16, this should remove all data. return SD card to camera, the camera may then want to format the card itself, if so this is all OK.
Also ensure that the little protection switch, on the SD card if there, not all have one, is set correctly... toggle it if there.

The sd card will have a sliding switch on the left side just slide the switch up so it is not locked anymore.

The quickest way to do that is to attach the camera with a USB to the computer directly without any card inserted. Then click Start/My Computer and your internal memory folder should appear as an external memory along with C: D: etc.
There may be also a similar way using the software provided by Canon when you bought the camera?. Hope this works.
