I have a pentex optio m60 it was okey but suddenly it saying battery depleted could me please tell me what is the solution for that and why does it happen

There could be a couple reasons for this:
1. When you have the battery in the charger, does it indicate that the battery is dead or fully charged. I would suggest placing the battery in a universal charger to check to see what the rating is on the battery, a universal charger will indicate the true power left. If the universal charger shows the battery is drained but your charger says it's full, you have a bad charger. If they both indicate full but camera says dead, you have either a power supply issue in the camera or the main board cannot read how much life is actually left in the battery. If your charger says full and the universal says empty, your battery is malfunctioning.
2. Does the camera turn off when it says battery depleted or does it simply keep telling that it's depleted. If the unit doesn't shut off, you have a firmware issue that needs technical repair on. That specific model does not allow you to download updates via USB from your computer, you need to send it to Pentax for repair.

Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

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 E40 8.1 MP batteries keep dying afer 20 pics???

Try cleaning the contacts by breathing and rubbing, if this doesn't work, put a LITTLE BIT of alcahol on a cotton swab, and clean.

My pentax m20 optio wont turn on.. it says battery deplete..

Hi there - these are older posts, but I just experienced this problem (it appears to be pretty common). The fix I discovered (that works), is to insert your batteries (make sure they're fresh), and then press and hold the "on" button plus "Menu" button, together at the same time. Hold until the firmware resets (a message will pop up on screen and the camera will reset). Voila! It works again for as long as the batteries are in and operational. Also note that in my case, if the batteries are taken out, I have to go thru the reset process again, but at least I have the camera back up and running. Hope this helps others!!

Switching off as if battery is depleted when the battery is newly charged

I called Pentax and they said it's a known problem and the lens needs to be re-synchronized. They said this is usually caused by dust in the lens.

I have to send the camera to : -
Pentax U.K. Limited
Pentax House
Heron Drive
SL3 8P

It's a free repair if you bought the camera less than a year ago o/w they will send you a quote for the repair.

Have exactly the same prob, my camera worked for 3 years without any probs, except that the alkaline batteries didn't have a long life...tried rechargeable batteries as well, but since three weeks ago it simply says, "batteries depleted", nothing works, tried everything...sending it to Pentax after the warranty is over is far more expensive than buying a new cam...really sorry for that, but don't think I gonna buy a new Pentax again...
