Question about Pentax Optio E10 Digital Camera

Open Question

Camera wont turn on

My camera is some what old but it has just stopped working all together. Even if i charge the battery the camera will turn on for about 1 or 2 seconds then shut off. Should i try and get a new battery or is this just a camera problem that i can not fix....

Thank You so much, heather!


Below it says my model is an optio E10 because it would not let me imput my cameras real model type. But on my camera if my eyes are correct it says Optio A10.

    Optio A10 8MP - About 2 yrs old.

    All of a sudden it doesnt turn on any longer. I have not tried changing batteries - need to research where to get a new one to try - I obviously tried full charging the battery and also pressing the batter in to make sure it has contact.

SOURCE: Pentax Optio A10 lcd replacement

I bought my parts from Pentax Imaging Co. for 59.73 + tax + shipping: Part Number 76650-0500 Tel 1 800 877 0155. I am willing to sell this lcd for 55+ ~ ($7 shipping in USA only) because I now have other problems with the camera. LCD is like new condition. (contact: magee.silas@gmail.com)

I pulled on the power wires to disconnect the LCD power supply and broke the black one at the connector. I was able to pull the old wire out of the connector and press the remaining section of wire into the connector securely and fix the mistake (use tweasers to prevent this).

As for the LCD information connector strip: Take all of the tape covering this connector off before proceeding because then you will be able to see and use the connector "gate". the gate pivots upward to allows you to place the connector strip in place then you can gently push the gate down to lock the connector strip in place. I tried sliding the connector in and it did not work. Instead it gave me a red screen. I did install my LCD, turned the camera on and it worked, Then...

After dissasembling the camera more that nessesary to be able to insert the menu board's connector strip back into place the camera failed to turn on. I have not found and dissconnected wires and suspect Electrical Shock Discharge for the failure.

If you try this procedure wear a grounding ******** your wrist, or take off the minimum nessessary to preform the work( backplate, sideplate near lense only). You do not need to remove the menu display panel to connect the lcd panel information strip, just remove the tape covering the connector.

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull too make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.

Greetings, Ron Timmermans.

SOURCE: My camera shows CARD LOCKED

Try taking the card out of the camera and clicking the side of the card - there may be a little gap on one side of the card or a small button that you can slide up and down and then reinsert your card.

Nikon cool pics totally dead


The battery is most probably defect. and then,
The manual says:


Battery is exhausted.
When connecting to an electrical outlet using a Charging AC Adapter, the camera cannot be turned on.

  • Confirm all connections.
  • Off is selected for Charge by computer in the setup menu.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops when the camera is turned off.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops if the computer is suspended (sleeping), and the camera may turn off.
  • Depending upon computer specifications, settings, and status, it may be impossible to charge the battery inserted into the camera via computer connection.



So even when you think the battery is charged, it still can be empty. When a rechargeable battery is old, or not often used, it can lose its capacity, not being able to power the equipment it was meant for correctly.
To make sure your battery is good, you could try to check the voltage with a multi meter. The voltage should be slightly higher than the 3,6 Volt that is printed on the battery. like 3,8 Volt, when measured. if it is just a fraction lower than the 3,6 is is not fully charged and it will be much lower when put in a camera, after switching on the camera. When you measure 2,4 Volt, 1,2 Volt or even nothing you can be sure the battery is dead.

Best option then, would be to order a new battery. But if you know someone with a camera that has the same battery that works, ask if you can check your camera still works with a battery that is ok. because when in a rear situation it is you camera that is defective, you can save the mont for a new battery and look out for a new camera, because the batteries are not cheap.

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Camera wont even turn on, dont know whats wrong,?


Usually that indicates that the main battery needs replacement. The camera will detect the low battery charge and disable the flash.

If the camera is more than a year old or you take a lot of ppictures then this is most likley your problem.

Photosmart M447 wont turn on.


50 pictures is way more than I get from this camera per battery charge. It draws 500mA when on, and 1000mA of current from the batteries when charging the flash so battery life will be short.

It also has a design flaw that says low battery and shuts off even when the batteries are 95% charged.

Be aware that rechargeable NiMH batteries self discharge at a rate of about 1% per day. They have a strong Amp-hour rating but need to be freshly charged.

IF the camera won't turn on at all when trying NEW 1.6V Lithium AA's (those are the strongest AA's made) or freshly charged 1.2V NiMH batteries and you know they are charging up to at least 1.35V per cell (they charge above their rating) then the camera itself has a problem.

Even if you get it to work, this is one of the lowest quality camera's made. I have quite a few decent camera's and I've never seen anything like this one, it's rated for 5Meg but has less resolution than an old 2Meg Canon. I paid $39 for it new on 3-2010 and I sent it back because it has no purpose since it can not take a clear picture.

Sorry but the only solution with this camera is to get something better (Canon, Sony, Nikon).
