How old is the Camera ?
Do you do a complete discharge prior to charging ?
Is it Li-ion...

1 - Battery may be sitting on an internal memory from 'charge point' - Try and discharge completely..
2 - Your battery has had its day, and will not retain power (mAh)

I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first...


I am sorry you having that problem, and even more sorry I do not have a solution...On my Pentax Optio M10 batteries rechargeable or fresh alkaline only seem to last about 5-6 pictures before the camera deems them flat without charge and shuts off...it is so annoying I assume yours is possibly doing the same.
I suspect this to be a camera problem, I also notice the camera dos not recognize all rechargeable batteries some of them do not even get acknowledge.
If anyone gets a solution help us both....

Camera turns on, then right back off


I ended up calling Pentax Customer Service, who told me that this indicates an internal problem with the camera. So, I sent it to Pentax to get it fixed. I'm told turn-around time is usually 2-3 weeks, and that I'll be called with a cost estimate before repairs are made. My fingers are crossed!

Digital camera problem


The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label. There is a possibility it could be card fault. But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though] Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.
