Can't get my camera to turn on

I am unable to get my Optio S40 to power up. Every time I try to turn it on the shutter open's very very slightly, the lens doesn't come out and then it turns itself off again. It says 'Battery Depleted' but i know this is not true as I've tried loads of new batteries. Please help!!!

Try rechargable batteries or Duracell. Other batteries may not have sufficient charge.

Depending on whats inside your lens it is likely to be either:
1) The light filter has jammed or the ribbon connecting it has broken.
2) solenoid for the apperture shutters has jammed or lost power.
I fix Fuji's and Samsung's mainly so couldn't say for certain exactly.

Normally there are two reasons for the given problem. 1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or 2). shutter not working. in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD. and in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

Your shutter is driven by a small motor attached to the lens assmbly. It could be that which has died or more likely you have a sticky shutter. A small knock or a drop of soda can stop them from opening. Try switching on and very gently with a cotton bud see if you can help open the shutters. Whatever you do don't force them and force them out of shape. You may have to do this a few times to get in sync with the power up sequence but if you can get both shutters to open fully you should be in business. If they keep sticking I've seen one guy glue them open. Personally I'd rather fix them so they do their job.

Bug in the Optio S40?


Somewhere I read to be careful using cardreaders, using your memory card in different camera's and managing your card via the computer. Appearantly all of these can corrupt your card. The advice is to hook your camera directly up to your computer to transfer images and perhaps it is wise to erase images through the camera's menu instead of via the transfer program of the computer. Try formatting the card using the camera's menu and see if the problem persists.

Shutter lens won't go in


If I remember right it takes AA batteries. Correct? Perhaps one of your NiMH AA's is not charged properly. Try it again with two newly charged NiMH batteries. You might also try putting in two newly charged batteries and let it sit for 24 hours and then turn it on. Lastly you might try putting a little pressure on the lens when you turn the power on. I had to do this once with my Optio S4. Hope you can get it figured out.
