Pentax Optio P80 battery won't charge all the way


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Optio 50L EAT A LOT OF BATTERIES


It appears that you are using you the camera more often therefore the batteries are getting discharged OR your batteries are old which have out lived their life.
The best solution in this case is buy a battery charger with spare rechargeable batteries and keep them charged all the time. This way you can cut the cost on batteries.

Camera doing its own thing.


Depending on the age and use of the batteries it could well be time to replace them. The best test would be to buy a new set of high power alkalkine batteries which you know to be fresh and try them. If everything works then invest in a new set of rechargeables. A respected brand with a high milliamp rating is best. It is possible one of your rechargables has lost the will to live and just died don't add just one battery. Change the complete set.

I've repaired a number of Pentax cameras where everything was OK except for the batteries.

Hello.

The Pentax Optio 60 does not charge batteries. You must purchase a battery charger and rechargable batteries and charge them yourself.
The AC Power Adapter cable just powers the camera, it does not charge the batteries.

Hope this helps.

My batteries keep going flat


Digital cameras EAT batteries. Buy only the best. If you don't mind paying a lot, use lithium batteries. They last longer but, the price doesn't actually make them a savings. They are only more convenient. If you have rechargeable, they lose their ability to accept a full charge after a while. Once they've been charged about 400 times, their life gets shorter each time you use them.

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.

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?

Pentax 43WR LCD shutoff problem


With the camera on and in picture taking mode, hit the OK button. This button cycles the display through a number of modes, including one that is normally off (except when using the menu or view).
