Question about Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't get my camera to turn on

I am unable to get my Optio S40 to power up. Every time I try to turn it on the shutter open's very very slightly, the lens doesn't come out and then it turns itself off again. It says 'Battery Depleted' but i know this is not true as I've tried loads of new batteries. Please help!!!

    I cannot even get my to turn on! I have tried several different batteries and it won't even turn on. I was using it fine and than it just didn't work! When we have batteries in it gets really hot? How weird is that? Does anyone know what to do?

Try rechargable batteries or Duracell. Other batteries may not have sufficient charge.
