Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
The camera will not stay on. When I turn it on the screen says "green mode" and will not stay on l;ong enough to take pix, change settings or anything. I have changed the batteries several times, thinking I got a bad pack, but that doesn't work. Help, I love the camera and want to use it again.
When a problem arises such as this it is a half and half so to speak to find what is happening.
If the camera has a small battery similar to the bios battery in a computer, then remove that battery. Leave it out for at least one day. Some cameras don't have this removable battery, and have internal caps or batteries. In any case remove the main battery or batteries. Let the camera sit for at least 24 hours. That should drain all power. Then after that period, put in a fresh battery or batteries, and see what happens.
I have had problems like this, and ended up using the camera for parts. That may be your choice if all fails. Sell it for parts/repair/AS IS on a site such as Ebay or Yahoo. Then you can get another camera. You may have the joy of finding one like it on a site.
