-   -   Copying Option S4 firmware FROM a working camera (

mcvw Dec 13, 2006 5:04 AM


Iknow at least three friends whohave working versions of this camera (mine is bust - A90!).

Does anybody know how to download the firmware from a working camera to SD card or a PC?

If so I would happily do this and *cough* "share" this much wanted file :)

Please advise!!!

PS: My S4 was having weird display issues -which a "reset todefault settings" didn't resolve, so I googled for Optio S4 and like many others did a "system initial". I too now havethe helpful A90 error.

My Optio S also had "reset todefault settings" issue. I did the "system initial" procedure and now it has the A90 error. I would appreciate know how to copy the firmware from a working S.

As far as I know you can't copy firmare FROM a camera, at least as a consumer. You can only copy firmware TO a camera. Best to send it in and let the experts fix it.
