Question about Pentax Optio W10 Digital Camera

I have the same problem - 4 fast beeps and it turns off. My guess is that the lubricants are getting old and sticky - I had a Canon SLR that developed the same problem after being in the extreme cold. Here's a couple of things to try:

I have the same problem with mine! I have been told to send the camera in to be repaired. Ugh!! I know there is a hidden diagnosic screen, but Pentax is not allowed to reveal how it is done. Does anybody out there know how?

You may need to format the SD memory chip. It's on page 158 in the User Manual. If you don't have a manual you can download it here. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/Optio%20W10_web.pdf The memory chip maybe full or appear full to the camera and will only show pictures in playback mode.
