I know it is nearly 2 years later, but some of us diehard Optio S fans still sound like we had workible cameras until recently.

My camera finally hick-uped and I was able to stop the error sounds and get the camera to give me the A90 error.

But I cannot find the fwdc110p.zip / bin file anywhere. All the old suggestions have no files. I called Pentex support and was told they have no idea what I am talking about and that no updated firmware exists. The A90 is a internal board issue and I must send the camera in for repair.

Anyway, if any one has a copy of the update. I would be grateful.

Thanks,

Eric B

Hi

I am too in need of the firmware for S4 - fwdc114p.bin

I have looked everywhere for it but come up emtpy.

I have found firmware for the Optio S & Optio s4i, but not the Optio s4!

Why doesn't Pentax have this?

Hello everybody,
Though a lot of people seems to desperately search the (in) famous firmware of the Pentax Optio S, I've decided to put it on my website ;-)
Just go to the URL below, and you'll find it at the end of the page!

http://www.locationgite-paris.com/Bo...BonsPlans.html

Simply clic on the fwdc110p.bin archive, follow the instructions, and…
Ta-daaa!
It works, i've tried it myself, and it saved my life (twice
No need to ask me for another version, it's the only one I've got.
But if someone who has the other versions wants to send it to me, I'll be glad to put it on my website.
Hope it'll help…
By the way, sorry for my english, I french (nobody's perfect).
And when you'll be on my website, just take a look at the other pages: if you wanna come to visit Paris, it could interest you as well ;-)
Et pour ceux qui ne parlent pas Anglais, cliquez sur le lien ci-dessus, allez en bas de page, et téléchargez le fichier fwdc110p.bin
Si vous ne comprenez pas les instructions en Anglais, contactez-moi via le site, et je vous communiquerai la marche * suivre ;-)
Bonne chance !
Thierry

Hola a todos. Primero decir que no vuelvo a comprarme una "PEnTAX" jamás, y ya me estoy encargando por mi parte de extenderlo para que nadie caiga en las garras de esta gentuza por no llamarles algo más gordo. Tengo el mismo problema que todos, el error A90 que sale justo después de cumplida la garantia. Está clarisimo que se trata de una estafa y espero que algún organismo actue en consecuencia y consiga meterles mano al igual que ellos la han metido en nuestros bolsillos. Suerte a todos.

Well, I guess it is my turn.

I've read through all 19 pages of this thread, and I see a lot of you are having success with the Optio S camera.

A few of us have been having this problem with the Optio S5i camera, but we all seem to have problems accessing the "secret menu" a.k.a the "technicians menu." When I press menu+flash+on the camera turns on normally and displays the a90 error. No secret menu for me!

Has anyone figured out how to get to the secret menu with the Optio s5i yet?

Thanks a million!

trevzilla-

I I remember correctly, that was only a feature found on the OptioS, not the S5i camera.
