Optio 33LF LCD problem

Im having a problem with my new camera.Sometimes I will be cycling through some pictures I just took,and I can see them fine,then all of a sudden,my lcd goes blank and I get a message,"camera can not display image".Then all the pics I already looked at say this.Now,if I turn the camera off,fine.I turn it on,and it usually works fine again,but if I leave it on,then take 1 more pic,the red and green light by the optical viewfinder blinks back and forth,red,green,red,etc.and none of the buttons work,and the lights blink endlessly.The lcd is still working;no buttons work at all,and the only way to shut off the camera is to open the battery compartment,remove the batteries and reinstall them;then the camera usually works??

This often indicates a card error. Transfer all your images then format the card in the camera. If you still have the problem, try a different card. If you still have the problem then looks like you will have to send it in for repair.

Camera was given to me without the manual and my battteries are fine but when i want to take a picture my camera suddenly shutts off


Try cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser or some fine sandpaper. Also, try new batteries, anyway. Sometimes you might get dead ones and not realize it.

When I put my 2gb Sandisk memory card in my pentax optio 33lf, it turns on, the lens goes out, it takes a photo and freezes. What is the problem? If I take the memory card out, it works fine?


My 33LF won't work with even a 1gb Memory Card. It freezez up as you describe.So far it seems happy enough with 512mb cards. A camera shop operator told me that the capacity of the card exceeds the capacity of the camera and it seems he was right.

According to the Pentax web site, there is no firmware update available for the 33LF camera. As far as your pics are concerned, you can use a card reader to download them to your computer. Then, you can format the card in the camera and everything should be ok.

My camera freezes


This camera supports only 512 mb sd card. If you use any bigger, it freezes. Tried with 1 gb and 2 gb and freezes, while 512 is just fine for the size of the pics of this baby.

Just to make sure that you never transfer to the another files. Check all your hidden files of your desk stop.

Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
