Optio S5Z. Camera still works, takes pictures, etc but when I press the Menu or Mode button a yellow lock icon appears on the screen.

How do you unlock? Not sure how it got locked in the first place. The camera was rolling around in my suitcase for a while so maybe a crazy combination of buttons got pressed that put the camera in locked mode?

Fixed. No more lock icon.

My good buddy Jamessimply started pressing buttons for about 15 minutes.

If you can't get rid of your lock icon I can send you James' address and for a substantial fee (plus shipping and handling) he will press your buttons - and may or may not return your camera.

I had the same problem with the exact same camera (Pentax Optio S5Z) that happened the same way. I searched everywhere on the web and finally found this post that didn't have a solid solution. So I started experimenting with different button combinations and finally figured it out.

Hold the OK button while turning on the camera. The screen should indicate that it is in audio record mode. Now press the Menu button and use the navigation keys to find and execute the system reset option.

After turning it off and back on it should function normally.

Hopefully this will help someone else who's experienced this unnerving quirk.
