Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
My Pentax Optio M20 is not working properly. When I turn it on, the camera starts to beep. It will automatically zoom in, then zoom out, and then automatically shuts off. I called up technical support and I was told that the camera needs batteries higher than alkaline batteries to power it. But with the beeping, there may be something wrong with the motor and the lens. Well I used rechargable batteries and lithium batteries and still the same problem... What exactly is going on here? About how much will it cost to get fixed? Is it worth it?
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.
