Hi there - these are older posts, but I just experienced this problem (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!!

The battery could actually have been depleted. This happens if the battery does not have enough power to playback images or take a picture. If the batteries are exhausted, the battery indicator can still indicate full power.

So first try to clean the battery contacts using a pencil eraser. If this fails to help you, buy a new battery.

Are you saying the batteries are not depleted? You've checked them? The camera should be under warranty. If I were you, I would go to the Pentax website, click on support and then on live chat to type back and forth with a technician who can either solve the problem or tell you what your next step should be.

My Pentax Optio M20 will not turn on.


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.

Maybe.
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.
