Question about Pentax Optio M40 Digital Camera

2 Answers

When i switch on, the camera switches itself off

Initially the lens comes out, the screen lights up, but there are a number of bleeps, the lens seems almost to hesitate, and then retracts and the camera switches off. Seem to be exactly the same problem as experienced by other contributors

I had this problem with my M30 and sent it back to Pentax they said it would cost £80 to repair but would let me have a new M40 for £100 that was 18 months ago and the same problem has occured with the new M40. this would seem to be a Pentax problem so now I am buying a Canon Ixus. Would anyone like the pentax m40 for parts?

After switching on, the lens starts to come out but goes back in and camera bleeps three times.


There are a number of things you can try to fix this problem. Here is a blog that explains what to try:

Hi, I've never had any problems transferring photos to my laptop until now. Suddenly, nothing is happening. I switch the camera off, connect it up, switch it back on again and the 'on' light comes on but...


Maybe you should update or reinstall the software? Does your camera act like it's connected (like black screen, special light, no access to menus, etc. etc.)? Check if there's a problem with your cable.

The lens will not extend


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

Samsung S1065 does not turn on, beeps 3 times before powering off. Lens is extended, have checked batteries, not sure what else to do??


I had the same problem, firstly you will be able to press the button on the back to view your pictures, when you do and the camera powers up quickly press the menu button. Check that your battery settings are set to alkaline, then buy some good alkaline batteries and not cheap ones. Check that they are alkaline and not like what I did and bought panasonic zinc carbon.
This worked for me and mine would not turn on either until i changed the batteries to a good make.
