SOURCE: camera wont turn on!! help!!

Dear Texaslilly,
Although there is nothing much to do but you can still try the following.

  1. Try with different set of batteries
  2. Remove the memory card from the camera
  3. Cameras generally do have an option to plug-in external power supply..Try with external power supply .. if there is any.
  4. Now this might sound little crazy but no harm in trying .... Remove batteries... Press and hold the power button for few seconds... release the power button ... reinsert the batteries and try to power on without memory card.
Try the above and let me know if it works.

Regards,
Srinivas.

SOURCE: e10 and s45 same problem

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)

My Pentax Optio WP beeps 3 times, goes dim and turns off. The battery is charged up fully. Any suggestions?


Hi Jesslionbery,

Please try removing the memory card that has been installed in it , if any.

When you remove the memory card make sure it starts.

If the above trick does not work , try using NIMH battery instead of the ones that you have in and check if it works.

Also if you update the firmware of the camera , it may solve your problem, please find this link for more information , as the crashing problem has been resolved for many because of a firmware update.

Hope this helps ..:)

The orange plastic clip that holds in the battery broke.


use some tape, or put a piece of something on top of the battery, when you close the battery door and latch it, it should hold the battery in place. That orange clip just holds the battery low enough that it comes in contact with the terminals at the bottom of the compartment.
Hope this helps

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.
