Question about Pentax Optio 330RS Digital Camera
With all the applicable seting in the Auto mode, my pictures still come out overexposed, sometimes to the extend that the image on the screen is totally white.
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 :)
