Question about Pentax Optio E10 Digital Camera
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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org)
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.
