Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
Hi. I have a Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera. When I hit the on/off button, the camera turns on, the lens zooms out for a second and then back in, then it shows the "Pentax Optio M" load screen, then it shows "Auto Picture" in the center and a green dot in the bottom left with the words "EV Compensation" next to the dot. While it's showing this last screen, it beeps 3 times right before the lens zooms out again then back in just before the camera turns off. I have changed the batteries multiple times. So it's not the batteries. I connected it to the computer and then hit the on/off button. It beeps twice before the red LED light in the front of the camera lights up while the removable disk window pops up on my computer, showing 2 folders ("DCIM", and "FRAME"). I click on these folders and there's nothing in them. I hit the "on/off" button on the camera again and it turns off while the removable disk window on my computer goes away. None of the other buttons on the camera seemed to do anything whether connected to the computer or not, during every phase of it's on status. What can be done to resolve this? Thank you.

When the camera is turned on, the lens extends, makes a slight buzzing sound and then retracts and the camera turns off.
