Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
Batteries were depleted as indicated on the screen but when batteries were replaced the camera would not turn on.
Hi there - I just experienced this problem with a Pentax Optio S30 (it appears to be pretty common). The fix I discovered (that works), is to insert your batteries (make sure they're fresh), and then press and hold the "on" button plus "Menu" button, together at the same time. Hold until the firmware resets (a message will pop up on screen and the camera will reset). Voila! It works again for as long as the batteries are in and operational. Also note that in my case, if the batteries are taken out, I have to go thru the reset process again, but at least I have the camera back up and running. Hope this helps others!!

Make sure the batteries are good. If the batteries are brand new, then it must be something with the camera, and you should take it in and have it looked at. Good luck.
