Hold the OK key for 5 seconds while powering on the camera. this unlocks the menu and key modes.

The orange plastic clip that holds in the battery broke.


use some tape, or put a piece of something on top of the battery, when you close the battery door and latch it, it should hold the battery in place. That orange clip just holds the battery low enough that it comes in contact with the terminals at the bottom of the compartment.
Hope this helps

I have a problem with de softwaredisk from my Pentax Optio M20. i can do nothing with my camera. Where can i get the software for making it working?? the disk is broken


If you mean that you want to get the pictures off.
Buy a card reader...less problems, and no drivers as a rule for most operating systems including most Linux distributions.
There is no need for any of the software to be installed if you get a card reader and download a free picture editor..a number of open source programs for editing of pictures exist.

Maybe.
But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.

Pentax Optio E10


Do not interfere with the lens as it is out -dont try to push it back- this will wreck it. Take the batteries out and with the eraser at the end of a pencil polish the contacts at the bottom the the battery chamber. Do the same with the contacts in the lid Try a further new set of batteries. Insert them. close the lid switch on What happened? Nothing Then switch on again and this time gently push ther battery compartment lid. What happened?

Optio 555 Battery Compartment cover problem


My Optio 450 has the same type of cover and I am surprised how tough the cover is. I thought it would have broken by now. I suggest a call to Pentax would answer your question about getting it fixed. Alternatively, just leave it. The Plastic hinge should keep it closed
