Question about Pentax Optio SV Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pentax Optio SV tunrs off immediately

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... Any idea? Thanks!

    My camera worked fine then one day it stopped turning on. I thought it was the battery that had died so bought a new one, but that didn't work too. I then thought it may be the battery charger failing but an electronic meter check said the battery was fully charged. My only thought now is the camera, but I don't know where to start.



    All advice welcome.

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 !

I turn on my camera that has full battery but it doesnt turn on


Sounds like sand in the lens cavity. Use a fully charged battery, then lie the camera flat face down on the floor, ideally a carpet. With the camera OFF, lens face down with the carpet, switch the camera on. It will take a number of go's to release the **** stuck in it.
Mine took atleast 15 go's. Better than chucking the camera out, and saved atleast 80 dollars and a trip to Germany!

I can not take pictures


update, possible solution..
I pulled the batteries for 24 hours, attempting to force a reset of the camera. Today it worked, took pictures and zoomed just fine. I shut it off after about 10 pics and turned it back on and back to the start... Took the batteries out for a few minutes and put it back in and back in business. Hope this helps at least get SOME functionality out of it. This won't serve as a long term solution for me, but perhaps will lead towards a full answer.

Camera won't turn on at all


Make sure the batteries you try are new and not cheap crap, or improperly charged or old recharghables. You can by a card reader that plugs into your USB for $15 - $50 dollars and download the photos then. Or bring your memory card into just about any photo store to have them put it onto a cd for you which you can then copy onto your computer. $5-$10
