Oops. When the battery suddenly stops, while still accessing the memory card, it could be the filesystem is damaged. This causing it looks if all pictures are gone. Don't use the camera again, till you have recovered the pictures.
Put the memory stick in an external card reader and run a recover program. I hope the program can fine the "deleted" pictures.
free software to recover your files on a memory card can be found on: with free trail with free evaluation version
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

Battery keeps going dead,bought 3 new,had new belts installed as per recall,alternator is good. still have to jump start when I have to use it.

Sounds like something is causing a power drain. If you know how to use an amp meter it's not too hard to find it. Disconnect the positive terminal from the battery with the meter set on amp put one lead from the meter on the battery terminal the other to the cable you took off the battery so that the current goes through the meter if it shows a drain pull out one fuse at a time until no drain seen then just check what that fuse goes to.

Had this only six months, water all over the floor. I opened the manual and, because the manual suggested it, cleaned out the inlet and drain pump filters (they were both clean). The problem appears to be...

Are you using 'HE' DETERGENT? High Efficiency detergent? And you should only be using about 2 tablespoons of detergent in a full load. Too much detergent, especially non-HE causes way too much suds which percolates out the vent in the back and onto your floor.

I had deleted one picture from lot of pictures i took in a trip and after i did that i lost lot of pictures and found only 7 pictures can i get all my pictures back again even i didn't make a protection...

If you did not use the camera after losing the pictures, chances are good. Connect the camera to the PC so that it is seen as external USB disk, or extract the memory and insert into an appropriate USB reader.

At that point, get a program such as Pirisoft RECUVA ( and fire it up. If the logic structure of the memory is intact (if you did not take pictures after the trouble, it probably is), you'll be amazed.

(That's why you NEVER NEVER NEVER want to sell an used photographic memory unless it's been thoroughly scrubbed with programs like SDelete)

Optio E10 Keeps running thru batteries, I bought a new 8 pk for a field trip with my sons school, I took 5 pictures and had to change batteries, placed in anew set and it wouldn't turn on. waited about 15...

This sounds very much to me like a short circuit causing the batteries to drain so quickly. The most common cause would be moisture or water damage. Another likely cause could be a malfunction of the control circuits causing the unusual power drain. ie the camera may be continuously charging the flash.
It may be time to consider this camera has seen better days and find a replacement, unless of course it is still under a warranty.

Battery Drain in MP3

I have seen these - set your device so that there is no back-lighting. Then go buy a NiCad rechargeable battery set (comes with charger and usually 4 batteries) they are really cheap lately at Big Lots , Radio Shack , Walmart, etc. These should last at least a full day. If they aren't - go exchange yours, because there is something wrong with it. Good Luck!!!

Battery inserted wrongly and now cannot remove

The battery should still be removeable - have you tried to move it or turn camera so the the open chamber is facing down and tapping the camera
