Hi, I am having trouble to turn on my Optio S. When I press the on/off button, the lense will pop out and goes right back. It seems like it cannot start the O/S. However, when I only turn on to view picture, then it's fine. Do any of you have the same problem? I am thinking either something wrong with the lense or the borad. Any input helps. Thanks
No, i cannot figure it out either, i have that same problem. i press the on/off button and the lens comes out goes back in and then shuts itself off...
I have had problems like that with mine.. Along with some other problems ... like the pictures have lines through them.. and sometimes the lens doesn't come back in and it smokes when I take a flash..... and a few other odd things happen... so sent it in for repairs and they said it would be $170 to fix it.. So I figured it had a good life after 10,000 pictures and retired it and got a Optio WP :-) So that's my story of the ever so loved Optio S
When I have that problem I replace the bettery with my spare and I recharge the battery that came out. Works every time. Maybe your battery is worn out and not holding it's charge properly.
