After i turn on my
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
PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10
Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.
If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?
If it doesn't have a power cord, what happens when you plug the camera into your computer?
The battery cover was broken.
Unless it can be glued back together you are in trouble. The company may sell parts but doubt it. I have not had much luck tryong to get parts like that. Battery doors break often an they just say no replacement. Contact Pentax about it not a camera store unless you plan on them installing the door. Good luck on this one.
I hit the Format button. Now all of my pictures are gone. Can someone please help!
It is probably time to replace this one. Cheaper than repair.
Memory card symbol has a small red bit on the screen and the camera wont take pictures
It is likely FULL. Try copying everything from the card to your computer. Verify the pictures are on your computer (so they you can delete them from the memory card) and then REFORMAT the memory card while in your camera. You do not want to delete them since it will wear out the memory card prematurely. Memory cards are pretty inexpensive. Buy a second, label them 1 & 2 and alternate. You'll always have plenty of room when a card fills up and you haven't copied them off yet.
How do I unlock my card?
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
Sorry. It is broken. The lens was most likely jammed on start up when trying to open or close when shutting down. The really bad news is that the cost to repair it is close to the cost of a new camera. (I have had several like this, casio, sony canon, nikon and olympus.)
Camera takes to long to snap pictures
This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. This is because before the camera can take the picture it must focus, meter the light to set the exposure, and more. Bigger, more expensive cameras have more hardware to help eliminate this "shutter lag."You can anticipate the action. Press the shutter button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the shutter button there until the peak of the action and then press it the rest of the way. This will eliminate much of the shutter lag.
