Question about Pentax Optio E60 Digital Camera

Won't turn on, only flashes a light

Just bought a Pentax optio E60 and did like 15 pictures and then it wouldn't turn on anymore. Checked with multiple batteries, but when I press the power button all it keeps doing is flashing an orange light once and a red light 6 times.

    Oh... I borrowed some 2500mAh batteries from my friend and it started working again...

    This exact thing is happening to my Pentax Optio E60. It won't turn on, flashes an orange light then a red one several times. Where do I get the batteries that the previous poster said got his to work?

    I have the exact same problem...
    The camera was a gift, I took a few pictures but haven't been able to turn it back on. The orange light blinks once, then red. I changed the batteries and got the same result.

    Same problem here: 1 orange flash, 6 red flashes, doesn't turn on :(

    It's getting really frustrating...

I had this problem and I found it was nothing more than the batteries. Try using lithium ones.

Pentax optio w80 waterproof digital camera won't turn on


I had the same problem. I checked the voltage first to ensure it was greater than 3.7V (some batteries were not). I left the door open and pushed the battery down and pressed the button and it powered up. Seems to be a problem with the contacts. I put about 6 layers of duct tape on top of the battery to cause the door to push it down and now it works.

Pentax Optio M40 is not recognized by PC


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10


Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.

If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?

If it doesn't have a power cord, what happens when you plug the camera into your computer?

Pentax S4 no flash problem


Well this camera has no manual controls so it's merely compensating for the lack of available light by lowering the shutter speed. I don't think there's very much you can do about it -- maybe you can try to lower the EV -/+ setting (I forget what it's called, it makes your image darker or brighter). If the camera didn't lower the shutter speed you would simply get dark pictures where you can't see anything
