20 Most Recent Pentax Optio E10 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


You need to format a new card in the camera.

The E10 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Sounds like a memory card problem. Try using A 512mb San Disk SD Card. Not a San Disk SDHC card. see if that doesn;t help you out. Good-Luck

Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.

If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?

If it doesn't have a power cord, what happens when you plug the camera into your computer?

When you reboot the computer, that message should go away. Use an external SD card reader and transfer your photos that way. They are inexpensive and relieves the need to connect the camera to the PC. It will transfer your photos much quicker too

Unless it can be glued back together you are in trouble. The company may sell parts but doubt it. I have not had much luck tryong to get parts like that. Battery doors break often an they just say no replacement. Contact Pentax about it not a camera store unless you plan on them installing the door. Good luck on this one.

You can try to contact a Pentax certified repair centre close to you. First ask then what it will cost, to rep;ace the cover, then decide for repair or a new camera.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I worked out a deal with Pentax and they repaired or replaced the damaged parts, so the camera is now as good as new.

Thanks for posting a suggestion.

I hit the Format button. Now all of my pictures are gone. Can someone please help!

It is probably time to replace this one. Cheaper than repair.

There are other complaints all over the internet about this cameras' battery life. Are you using NiMH batteries or alkaline? If you used 8 you must be using alkaline. If they are heavy duty regular batteries you are using the wrong kind of battery. NiMh hold more power and last longer with a flatter power curve up till they are about done. Recahrging means not buying lots of batteries too. They should last for a long, long time; like a week or two at least. The manual and quick guide can be downloaded in PDF from http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.uk/en/Photo-Downloads.html

It is likely FULL. Try copying everything from the card to your computer. Verify the pictures are on your computer (so they you can delete them from the memory card) and then REFORMAT the memory card while in your camera. You do not want to delete them since it will wear out the memory card prematurely. Memory cards are pretty inexpensive. Buy a second, label them 1 & 2 and alternate. You'll always have plenty of room when a card fills up and you haven't copied them off yet.

Contact PayPal customer support. They are very helpful (unlike the old days before ebay bought them.)

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Sorry. It is broken. The lens was most likely jammed on start up when trying to open or close when shutting down. The really bad news is that the cost to repair it is close to the cost of a new camera. (I have had several like this, casio, sony canon, nikon and olympus.)

This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. This is because before the camera can take the picture it must focus, meter the light to set the exposure, and more. Bigger, more expensive cameras have more hardware to help eliminate this "shutter lag."

You can anticipate the action. Press the shutter button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the shutter button there until the peak of the action and then press it the rest of the way. This will eliminate much of the shutter lag.

You probably set the auto power-off for energy saving

Use the "Image Copy" command in the playback menu. See page 76 of the manual.
