    Thanks for your reply


    I have tried reinserting the batteries after much more than an hour. Nothing happens!


    Model no is Optio 30 There are other numbers if you want them.


    The batteries show a charge of 1.35 v and 1.38 v respectively.


    Hope this helps

Hello

After the new batteries are insterted, does the on/off swich give any sign or trying to pull the zoom lens back in, or any sign of turning on and off? If not, does the camera have a power cord with it that you can attempt an on/off with?

Thanks

I put new batteries in my camera-but doesnt do anything. I left camera on,I think and then thought batteries died so then replaced with new ones.now nothing works.


This happened to me as well. I took the batteries out and put new ones in three times (same batteries). The third time the camera started working again as soon as I closed the battery compartment and tried on "on" button.

Camera won't turn on to take pictures~


This is a common problem related to batteries. Use 2100mA or higer batteries fully charge batteries. This problem occurs when you use alkaline batteries or faulty NiMH batteries. To solve the problem try with new fully charged NiMH batteries.

Power button does not seem to work have put in new batteries but nothing happens


Here are the steps:
1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).

2. Clean the battery contacts.
a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera

3. Turn on your camera without the memory card.

Put in new batteris and nothing happens. They are


First, make sure that the "new" batteries have a full charge. If you don't have a meter to check them with, try using them to power something else. Also, if using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the correct type for the camera. NiCd batteries will not work well in a camera that calls for Ni-MH batteries.

If the batteries are OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery connections inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts with a clean soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any specks that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean and reinstall the batteries.

The above clears about 90% of power-up problems, and I hope it works for you. If not, your camera may have a more serious problem that requires repair by a camera shop or the manufacturer.

Change the batteries message even with new NIMH RShack batteries


The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).

Dead?


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...
