Won't turn on in Picture Mode

The camera will not turn on in picture mode. It will turn on in playback mode. When you press the power button, it beeps 4 times and turns off.

    The sd card is fine that is not the problem.

    The beeps mean that there is a printed cicuit error. At least that is what Pentax told me. The only solution is to send it back for repair and hope the repair costs less than a new camera.

I have the same problem with mine! I have been told to send the camera in to be repaired. Ugh!! I know there is a hidden diagnosic screen, but Pentax is not allowed to reveal how it is done. Does anybody out there know how?

You may need to format the SD memory chip. It's on page 158 in the User Manual. If you don't have a manual you can download it here. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/Optio%20W10_web.pdf The memory chip maybe full or appear full to the camera and will only show pictures in playback mode.

My camera will turn on then go off and the lens will not go out how do i fix this?

The manual is a bit confusing. I do have a power shot, but is is a bit younger. My camera does have 2 On buttons. One to put it in shooting mode. And one to set it in display mode. If I press the display button (arrow right) the lens stays where it is and I only can see pictures I took. When I press the on off button the lens comes out.
I think you only have to switch the main dial to the camera logo (shooting Mode) and then press the Disp button, to shoot pictures and if you want to view pictures, you turn the dial to playback Mode (arrow to the right) and press the Disp button.
If it works, no fix, just knowledge about how the camera works. It is all in the manual.
