pentax wg2

I have the pentax wg2. Worked fine until a while ago . It turns on and you can navigate through the menu but when you press the shutter release the screen goes black and you can only rectify this by turning it off. When you turn it on again it does the same again.

Fully charged battery? Water intrusion? Does it have the latest firmware? (Never mind, Pentax has no firmware update)

Have you tried removing the battery for a few minutes, and then putting it back in?

Answer to your Screen issue

One of the features of the camera is the ability to turn off the screen while you can still take photos and evvery other function of the camera works normally. With the camera turned on and with or without the screen being on press the "Ok" button to cycle through the different screen modes available. If you set the option for the screen to be off, it will still turn on for the first few moments when you first press the power button, but the shutter will trigger the screen off from there. If you press the "ok" button it should turn back on and stay on unless you cycle it back to the off setting.
