I just got mine to working again!!!!! (After about a year of not working.) I held down the green button while I was turning it on. Something happened... you could hear things going on. I did this several times and eventually, it worked.

Mine sounded like the shutter was getting stuck. I also sprayed a very small amount of wd40 on the lens rings, being careful not to get it on the lens itself.

After i turn on my Optio E10, it shuts off right away even after i put in new batteries.


Sounds like a memory card problem. Try using A 512mb San Disk SD Card. Not a San Disk SDHC card. see if that doesn;t help you out. Good-Luck

THe flash of my Optio E10 gone. What should I do?


Make sure the battery is fresh or new.
Make sure to check all your menu settings.
These settings can affect the flash.
You can reset to default...then see what happens.
You can always sell the camera as a parts camera on a site such as Ebay.

E10 and s45 same problem


the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull too make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.

Greetings, Ron Timmermans.

Do not interfere with the lens as it is out -dont try to push it back- this will wreck it. Take the batteries out and with the eraser at the end of a pencil polish the contacts at the bottom the the battery chamber. Do the same with the contacts in the lid Try a further new set of batteries. Insert them. close the lid switch on What happened? Nothing Then switch on again and this time gently push ther battery compartment lid. What happened?
