    The sd card is fine that is not the problem.

    The beeps mean that there is a printed cicuit error. At least that is what Pentax told me. The only solution is to send it back for repair and hope the repair costs less than a new camera.

You may need to format the SD memory chip. It's on page 158 in the User Manual. If you don't have a manual you can download it here. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/Optio%20W10_web.pdf The memory chip maybe full or appear full to the camera and will only show pictures in playback mode.

My camera will turn on then go off and the lens will not go out how do i fix this?


The manual is a bit confusing. I do have a power shot, but is is a bit younger. My camera does have 2 On buttons. One to put it in shooting mode. And one to set it in display mode. If I press the display button (arrow right) the lens stays where it is and I only can see pictures I took. When I press the on off button the lens comes out.
I think you only have to switch the main dial to the camera logo (shooting Mode) and then press the Disp button, to shoot pictures and if you want to view pictures, you turn the dial to playback Mode (arrow to the right) and press the Disp button.
If it works, no fix, just knowledge about how the camera works. It is all in the manual.

S5i won't turn on in Capture mode


Hi Aunty Edna. I had exactly the same problem with my S5I 4 weeks ago. Went out and bought another camera then decided had nothing to lose by doing heart segury on S5I. Found it has a watch battery soldered to board under memmory card holder which was flat. I replaced that with a similar battery and it fixed the problem. Its not an easy job but if you know someone good with there hands it would take about an hour.Hope this helps. Regards Andy

Problem with image


What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit

Beep - Beep - Beep - but No Picture


1. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 2. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. If you try to take a picture before the Flash is charged, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. Once the Flash unit is fully charged (10 seconds), the camera is ready to continue. 3. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries.
