Question about Pentax Optio S45 Digital Camera

2 Answers

E10 and s45 same problem

I have Optio 10 E10 and an Optio S45. Both are about 2 years old and will not open the lens with a fully charged rechargable battery. When I put in a fully charged non-rechargable battery the lens opens briefly but displays a battery depleted sign. Any Ideas?

The batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

The camera comes on momentarily and then turns back off after a beep. The batteries are brand new and we tried several new ones just in case. We believe there is a camera problem. Is there any history with this model camera? It is a Pentax Optio S45.

PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10


Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.

If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?

If it doesn't have a power cord, what happens when you plug the camera into your computer?
