Pentax Optio E60 won't turn on

The camera had only been used a couple times when the power light began flashing first orange then red (several flashes) when the power upo button was pressed -- it wouldn't turn on--just flashed. I don't have the receipt so can't return it. I've recharged the batteries, and tried everything I can think of.

    The same problem with me. Mine happend only hours after first use when i was connecting the USB cord from my pc into the camera.

    The camera was turning on and at the same time my finger sliped and opened up the battery compartment and the camera froze with the lens half sticking out.

    I put the batteries back in and tried to turn the camera on again and it lights up with one orange light and then proceeds with 6 red blinks of light.

    I managed to gently push the lens back in the fully shut position but the camera still wont turn on.

    I have tried all sorts of batteries and nothing works.

    I am taking it back today but unsure whether to get a refund or replacement, because if it can mess up so easily, well...

    The pentax e60 camera that I bought in Japan started to fail after the first use. I shanged the battery many times and there was times when it would start again but shut down after 2 or 3 photos and not start after that. The same cursed blinking lamp. Only time it likes to work is when its connected to the computer, or I am just lucky. I also tried to shange memory card, format and stuff. with no luck. I guess I will have to throw it away if this problem stays without any support. I hope a new firmware will solv it.

    I used this camera three times and now when I try to turn it on it flashes yellow then red, OVER AND OVER.....

    I have the same problem. I just got this camera for Christmas. Took about 5 pictures with it. Turned it off.... tried to turn it back on... no go... Now about every 30 min. I have tried to turn it on and I get the orange flash.. then the multiple red flash. It has turned on twice and I thought all was fine... I was wrong... back to the flashing light. This is really upsetting since I was trying to take pictures of my family for Christmas.. and I have been waiting for this camera for 5 months now. I'm sure I will have to send it back for repair which is what everyone else should do. I read on their website that their cameras come with a one year warranty.

Messed with mine for a while and discovered the following:
I mashed the entire directional pad (ok and arrows) with my big fat thumb and hit power at the same time. This apparently reset something inside the camera and it's now functional again.

LED flashing green and red

I had the same thing happen to me with my pentax optio. You may have to large of an SD memory card. Or you could have the wrong type of card. I would recomemd that you use a 512mb SD card. Not the SDHC card. Also i would make sure that the battaries are fully charged. Hope this helps you out!
