After FULL recharghing my battery, I took two pictures.
Then, I turned the camera off.
Two minutes later, trying to open the camera, it turns on, shows the Optio logo, and 2 seconds later tunrs itself off.
The lens doesn't even attemt to open.
We've trieds all capture modes - but still - the camera won't open...

Re: Pentax Optio SV tunrs off immediately
I have the same problem with my camera and the following activities solved it. Remove batteries and clean contacts of battery's host (include cover). Check as well that contacts are not bended and didn't lost their springiness.
Good luck !

Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the unlocked position? If so, try this...remove the card and the battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label.
There is a possibility it could be card fault.
But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though]
Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.
My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.
I think it is pretty obvious that your camera isn't going into full 12 hour mode and is displaying a combination of 12 hour (am/pm) and the usual 24 hour time. This could not come from anything other than a firmware error, and will be common to all SV's with the same firmware version. Almost certainly Pentax will fix it with a firmware update within the next few weeks to a month once they know about the problem.
So you've proved that the problem is in the review mode in the camera. Is it also embedded in the date for the file and in the EXIF information included in the file? I guess that if 24 hour time works, the temporary fix might be just to use 24 hour time.
