My Optio s60 when i turn it on is automatically turning itself off as soon as i try. Also the zoom is stuck out as if it was about to take a picture and even when i turn it on or off it doesnt budge an inch.
I can view the pictures i have stored on there and i could use the microphone setting if i wish but anything to do with actually taking photos or video footage is impossible.
I have changed the battery and the memory card is pretty well empty.
3 days ago it was working fine....it hasnt been subjected to any damage so any ideas on why my camera is doing this would be great.
thanks, Dukesta :)
I had exactly the same problem with this camera and i tried in many places to find out how to fix it. Everywhere price for fixin was more than 100 bucks,so...teh best solution is to buy new camera.buddy!

Switch to macro mode. Press cursor-up (marked with a flower) then select Macro (the flower icon). This mode is used for close-up photography. For full details, see "Setting Focus" on page 28 of this manual.
This might sound a bit silly, but as I have posted earlier I had a similar problem As soon as he lens came out ready to take pictures it retracted and turned off. Because i haave decided to buy another camera I held the Optio in my right hand and banged it into the palm of my left hand. No great shock to the camera, but hey presto it now works. Not sure if I can rely on it though......what does anyone else think about this?
you have a timing problem,the gears for your housing is out of calibration with your focus lens inside of the housing. you must take the camera apart to correct the problem.there is a flywheel type of ajustment in the top of the camera that can be turned to bring the camera back to its reset position. it is bad to keep turning on the camera as this may danage the gear that is out of time.
yes me too! one side of my lens hit the ground and is stuck. it wont come out and my camera also automatically turns itself off once i try to start it. i think you shoudl go get your lens fixed...mines stuck and wont go in or come out
You certainly need to use high capacity Ni-Mah or lithium batteries.
Using alkaline would have caused overheating and may therefore have damaged the board.
You are right to ask is a repair worth it?
Almost certainly the answer is no even if possible.
There are usually no spare parts available.
Go back to tech support and this time simply report the bare facts -'It wont stay on'.
Say nothing about the battery situation.
Depending on the age of the device you may be offered a reasonable swap out price.
