Default Optio S problem

Hi all,

I have just bought the Optio S, and I have found the camera hangs on occasions. This usually happens when I confirm OK to the setting changes in the menu system. Is this normal? Or should I go back and get it changed for another one ? Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do to remedy the problem?

Thanks for any advice!!!

I can't help you on this except to confirm that that is not normal. I bought an Optio S for my wife and have never experienced this problem. I'd get ahold of Pentax -- after ensuring that the battery is fully charged <G>!

Hi,

I've just bought two Oprio 33L cameras (from seperate suppliers, a few weeks apart), one for me and one for my father.
I have exactly the same problem with BOTH cameras. Almost randomly, the live view freezes. Pressing the "play" button sometimes takes you to the view of your last picture but then no button does anything at all and you can't even turn off!
I'm left with no option other than to remove the batteries and restart.

My current firmware (check by holding menu and On/Off) is V1.0 and Pentax have no upgrade yet.

I think that the problem is deeper than just a bad batch, it's a nasty software problem in my humble opinion!
Nice camera though!!!

Cheers,
Jez.
