Most likely the lens is jammed or stuck. The unit is trying to initialize, and not being able to, shutting itself down. Dust and sand can work it's way into the lens assembly, and jam the gears. You can try to spray it out with compressed air to try and free it up. If that doesn't work, here's some things you can try:

The page is for lens errors, but it applies to your problem.
They say about 50% of the cameras with a lens error/shutdown problem can be fixed.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Model PL81. Why does it zoom, beep, and shut down?


Are you positive that the battery is good? Turning on for a few seconds and then shutting down is a classic symptom of a battery that did not take a proper charge and as soon as the surface charge is used, unit will shut down. And what if your charger is not properly charging the battery?

If you have a battery eliminator try that in lieu of the battery to see what happens.

Battery keeps dying


Most likely the charging circuitry has failed. When you fully charge the new battery what does the battery meter read on the camera? Your two options no matter what the case are repair vs. replacement. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Battery Dont Charge


jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

Camera won't stay turned on


It sounds like weak batteries in both cases. The zoom motor takes more power than displaying pics. DON'T USE "HEAVY DUTY" batteries - they're for kids toys. Use alkaline or rechargeable, and charge the batteries for AT LEAST 15 hours, even if your charger indicates they're fully charged after 1 hour. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Shuts off


It sounds like the battery is flat - I realise that you've probably already thought of this, and charged up the battery, however batteries have a finite life and number of charge cycles they can go through, and may appear to be fully charge (According to the charger, at any rate), but they are unable to hold any decent charge. My suggestion would be to head down to the local camera shop, and ask if you can try a new battery in-store.
