Hey otooler,
I don't know what else you have tried other that hitting the camera, which of course is never a good idea with digital cameras. I would first try taking the battery out for at least 1 minute and then reinserting it. If that doesn't work and you can access the menu at all I would initialize the camera back to factory settings. I don't know when you purchased the camera but if it was in the last year this camera comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, and I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan

Pentax Optio E60 won't turn on


Messed with mine for a while and discovered the following:
I mashed the entire directional pad (ok and arrows) with my big fat thumb and hit power at the same time. This apparently reset something inside the camera and it's now functional again.

could be a couple things.
first: your memory card most likely has a slide switch just switch that back to the unlock mode
second:

second: from olympus guy
put the camera into play back mode. This is where you can see your picuters on the camera. Then go into the menu and try to go to card setup. This is 3rd tab. So hit ok hit right for mode menu. then hit down to you see card setup. Then hit right arrow 2 times and you will see formatt. Then go to yes and it will say caution somthing. and hit ok

Now if you have picuters on the card this will delete them so if you care about them you might want to think about data recovery. But if not try this and let me know.



"""I don't use the camedia software to download pics from the camera, neither do I use Xp's picture and scanner wizard. I simply plug my cam to the usb port and xp detects it as a USB mass storage device. I then copy the pics from the removable device displayed on My Computer window. Would you say that this method is not safe?""""



This is best way to do it i think. If you dont want to go into Cameida. The xp scanner camera wizard works good most time i dont know why it messes up some camera cards and its really random. One thing i would say. Formatt the card everytime you download your picuters. Not in the computer by right clicking on the driver, NEVER DO THIS!! will blow your card basicly. Do not delete pictuers from you computer with camera pluged it. Basicly most cameras us a diffrent file system the your computer. So that can start to mess things up. Just put the card into camera and do a format.

hope that helps.

My Sony DSC-W100 says "Turn the power off and on again" but still wont take any pictures! The screen just stays black. Anyone know what is wrong with it and how much it will be to get it fixed?


OMG - I had the same error, when I turned the camera on it said "Access" and then "Turn the power off and on again".
I have turned it on and off over and over again! THANKFULLY I took "Guest's" advice from September 12, 2007. After hitting it a few times on the carpet, I still received the error, BUT while the lens was retracting in and out I hit the top of the camera beside the power button with my knuckle and it WORKED!!! I can take a picture again. Thanks so much for the advice. Hope this helps others.
