Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately

My pentax optio t10 will power on and lens will telescope out only to retract and turn off within a second. If I press the arrow button, top right, it will allow me to view pictures on my sd card and go to the menu screen. At menu screen I went to the reset function and reset the camera, but still doing the same thing and turning off. Any advice? Thanks, Ron

My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.

Pentax Optio T10 batteryclip broken

This is a very common problem with this model because the part is made of plastic. Unfortunately the camera must be disassembled in order to replace the part and I know the local service center in New York, Photo Tech is good at this. If the camera is still under warranty then you can either ship directly to Pentax located in Colorado or try the service center in New York. I suggest you contact them at to find out price and turn around time for the repair.

Good Luck,

Pentax Optio T10,comes up with Card Locked, when turned on

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Pentax Optio a10 turns off automatically after I turn it on

It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Pentax Optio M20

But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.

Lens Jammed

Is looks like a problem with the zooming mechanism. Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
