    I have the same problem, the camera turns on and makes humming sound as the lens tries to focus, then shuts off after the lens retracts. I had a similar problem while it was still under warranty and the factory fixed it and updated the firmware. It worked for about 10 months and now the problem is back but the camera is out of warranty.

There is no fix for this you can do yourself. These cameras are designed to shut themselves off if there is any kind of an internal problem. So automatically shutting off is a symptom, rather than the problem itself. Return the camera to a Pentax repair centre. They'll give you an estimate, and I guess you'll know what to do if the cost of the repair turns out to be more than the camera is worth to you. And don't waste your money on advice from a "fixya.com" expert, cuz' they'll tell you the same thing, after asking if your battery is charged and if your SD card is in and if your internal memory is full, yada, yada, yada, which is ****, cuz' under those various circumstances, the camera would stay on, at least for a couple of minutes.

Have you checked how much charge the battery is holding,
might need a new battery. Also check that battery is making full contact. Just an idea!

Pentax Optio M30- How do I transfer pictures from the internal memory onto an SD card??


this model not support it, To do that, you need to connect to pc and transfer it. As long you inserted the SD card, IT will use memory from SD card and not display image, video from built in memory.
if you want to delete file in built in memory, you need to remove memory card.
