Perhaps you have an empty battery?
Just remove the battery and try charging it on an external charger. When it is charged, try again. The camera should start with retracting the lens. Perhaps you again should power down and remove the battery for a few seconds after that, but just try it.
Switching of a camera causes it to start again, like a cold boot from a computer.
Monitor your battery, because if the camera shuts down very soon after that, perhaps you need a new battery?
When the battery is empty, you can't switch on the camera. Why does it not charge?
Could be the switch behind the lens cover does not work correct or not at all. Could be the power cord is not ok. Or the socket where the cord goes into the camera.
Can you try to charge the camera on an external charger and when it is charged, try switching on again.
You can charge the battery with the charger that came with the camera. Or you can charge the battery with the camera dock. For that to work, you should switch off the camera. While the charging is stopped as soon as you switch on the camera. If you don't have a dock nor a charger, you could buy a new universal battery charger. Several brands do have universal camera battery chargers. Those new chargers sense what voltage your battery needs and will give no more.
Are you sure that the battery is charged? Did you pull the front of the camera down, this switches on the camera. You might be pressing the power button on top only and it must be giving you an error to open the lens.
This is from another older camera's manual but the method of switching on is same.
mmmm.... thats a weird problem :)
Yes definatly try those other rechargable batteries that you where thinking of buying, the batteries could be duds??
other than that, if it is under warrnty send it back to pentax with the batteries and tell them the problem.
Sounds like the battery has failed. if you can, then if you can try and borrow a working battery from someone else with the same camera, and try your battery on their camera just to confirm this is the problem.
If you can't, then just try a new battery - please post again if you are having trouble finding one.
Other possibility is that there is a fault with the charger - again if you can borrow one, you can soon see of this is the problem. Most camera repair shops will have a selection of chargers they can use, so you should be able to check this quite easily.
Hope this helps :)
