Question about Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pentax s5z doesn't take any more pictures

The camera switches on and you can see that the monitor works fine, but none of the buttons are operating. THe camera fails to take any pictures, neither does it zoom in/out, etc. Yesterday I took a video using it and switched it off, and ever since than, it stopped working. I recharged the battery, but it didn't help.

    I lost the old memory card of my pentax and decided to buy a new one, but when I inserted the new memory card in my camera refuse to work. There's no light on the screen and all the buttons don't function. It automatically closes though. Does anybody knows why this is so?

Here's another method to fix this problem.
Push the ON Button for some while and you will go to MEMO recording screen, in this mode the MENU button works and you can RESET the camera.
Cheers Phil

My Pentax Optio S5z locks itself somehow. Before it usually unlocked on it's own also. Now it is stuck on LOCK and I am not able to delete pictures, or use the MENU or MODE buttons. I am able to take...

Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the unlocked position? If so, try this...remove the card and the battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Memory card size

The S5z is limited to SD cards, 2GB and smaller. The speed doesn't matter, but larger cards will not work in this camera.

Pentax optio s5z

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Unlock Pentax Optio S5z

I had the same problem with the exact same camera (Pentax Optio S5Z) that happened the same way. I searched everywhere on the web and finally found this post that didn't have a solid solution. So I started experimenting with different button combinations and finally figured it out.

Hold the OK button while turning on the camera. The screen should indicate that it is in audio record mode. Now press the Menu button and use the navigation keys to find and execute the system reset option.

After turning it off and back on it should function normally.

My Pentax Optio s5Z is stuck on one mode

I also had this problem. I think it is caused when the camera is turned off while in the viewing part of the camera. That is, I had gone to look at the video that I had just taken, but didn't and then turned the camera off. The camera is then as you have described it.
The only way I could get it back to normal is to connect the camera to the computer, using the cable, and download the photos and videos. When the download is complete, disconnect the camera and it should be OK.
Good luck, cheers. Phil
