    im having the same problem!! except my camera's frozen with the lens out! i went out with my camera one night and lost the battery (fell out by accident) while the camera was still on. Nothing else has happened to it, i bought 2 new btteries so far and the camera still wont turn on. I think it needs rebooting aswell, but how???

    My camera stopped working. I charged the battery, put it back in and it wouldn't work. Won't even turn on. I tried manually working that latch under the battery door, but it doesn't help.

    My camera simply would not turn on after charging the battery... I tried pressing the lever by the battery in and still no dice.  This is frustrating as I have only had the camera a little over a year.

You may want to try if the little black latch contact next to the battery and the memory card is not working properly. The camera will freeze and not turn on when this contact is not engaged. Open the battery latch, press down on the little black contact using a pen and try to turn on the camera. If so, the latch doesn't engage that contact any more in regular use. If not, no luck. I had this problem and fixed it by putting a small thick piece of tape on the little pin on the latch that is supposed to press this contact.

I dropped my phone in the pool, got a new battery for it and it worked fine untill the battery ran out and now it will not charge or turn on (lg xenon)

Since it's a new battery it might be the battery. If a battery will fail it will do so with the first 30 days of use. It sounds like you have never charged it before. You should bring it back to the store for a replacement to test it if possible with another phone. But since the phone suffered water damage the real issue is most probably the phone. If a phone gets wet sometimes it will work fine for a while after it dries or it won't work at all. But even if it does work you could start having random issues with it everything from random shutdowns/reboots, can't charge, can't stay on to issues like preventing you from receiving txt msgs or using the camera or media player. You might have to start shopping around.

Camera will not turn on

It sounds like maybe somebody dropped it and is regretting to inform you of it. Other than that it could just be faulty

Camera will not power up correctly

Again the same old compact camera zoom lens problems - sand in lens, stuck AF motor, chewed up plastic only have to look at them wrong and they will die... (A very cynical camera repairer that has tried to repair these damn things soo often!!) Even cameras with internal lenses like the old Nikon 950/990/4500 still have troubles with stuck motors and broken lens parts. I despair - these things are just made to last the guarantee out (if that long) and die horribly afterwards!!

Will not power on, lens stuck, poor warranty

Oh boy says the camera tech, a free camera. UTTER BS mate. This is an old trick to say you dropped it or got it wet. If a camera gets wet you can tell straight away and if you are adamant you haven't dropped it or given it swimming lessons then stand up for yourself and DEMAND it gets repaired. I'll guarantee it'll get repaired and sold very quickly if you leave it with them. Many cameras suffer from a similar fault and OK many of do get droppped but just as many are faulty without being dropped. Write letters to Pentax themselves and jump up and down.Make as much noise as you can. If you have a consumer affairs organization write to them as well. Threaten media notification and anything else you can think of. Even legal action. Any genuine Tech will stand up in court and say it's a common fault in many brands. I did hear of one person who took a camera company to court because they refused to repair her camera because she carried it in her purse. She won because the darned thing was advertised to carried in a pocket of purse. Honestly some of these shifty characters just love people like yourself. Go to the top and make NOISE and lots of it.
