Hi,Iam on holiday in California and my digital camera has decided to play up just as we have arrived at the Grand Canyon.It is a Pentax Optio 430 - about 3 years old.When I try to take a picture it switches on OK, the lens powers out but then it automatically powers down again.I can review pictures that I have taken OK but am unable to take any fresh ones.I have tried different batteries, CF cards etc to no avail.It is as though it times out straight away and shuts off before I can use it.It cost me about four hundred pounds three years ago after a recommendation in PCA. Is it possible to repair it myself?If not who would be a good repairer?Or shouldI just bin it?Thanks for any suggestions.Bob Swanson
Does it have any sort of reset option - reoving the battery overnight, for example, might reset it.Just a thought...Somehow I don't know about the viability of repair - the cost is likely to exceed the value of the camera.
Time to move on I guess.A lot of changes in the digi cam market in three years.Good prices ib the US of A
