    I have exactly the same problem with my s50. Do I need stronger batteries. Camera shopkeeper couldnĀ“t come up with a solution. Is this maybe a persistent problem among the s50-series?

    Suddenly NO new Battery works either rechargable or conventonal.......just says battery depleted. If I tap it or jiggle it as I turn it on it might work (amazingly with full battery showing) one time in ten. Time to junk the thing. Sorry folks, this camera is no good!!!!

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...

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

My Nikon Coolpix L1 Digital Camera won't turn on but I do get an indication of the green light for a second but the lens won't extend..


hi there,

i had a similar problem, in that the green light would flash but nothing would happen,

best to try a brand new set of batteries, and if that doesn't work, the ribbon which brings power from the batteries to everythin else may not be connected fully. if you have the skill, or know some one with the skill, just open the camera up, and check all the ribbons (the power ribbon is identified generally as a green ribbon).

hope this helps :)

regards

Camera wont turn on...gives beep sounds and green light glows when pressing power button


Does the lens extend in either of these cases? If there has been some malfunction in the lens and it fails to extend the situation can cause the camera to power-off in order to protect itself. Some cameras show error messages before powering off, others do not. Hold the camera up to your ear and turn the power on. Is there a series of mechanical sounds before the beeps? Hearing sounds but not seeing the lens extend indicates some sort of failure in the lens assembly. If you hear nothing then the problem most likely lies elsewhere, possibly a failed electronic component or something as simple as a loose connection. Check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
