I just realized that when I take the battery out of the camera briefly and put it back in (for example, when I put the battery back in after a recharge), the camera does't powerup properly. It shows the green light and it doesn't go off and the camera hangs and nothing is functional. Has anybody else experienced this problem?

Re: Optio S Powerup Problem
Perhaps this is related to the focus problem you posted? Battery drain because the lens system hangs up on power-up? If this new lens system fail to open properly you can have battery and focus problems?

remove the batteries first'
pull the memory stick put it back in
put good (proper milliAmpere hours) new batteries in the camera
If that does not work \turn off the camera
remove the memory stick
Repeat power up
This is tricky .. if you have no warranty, and have already managed to push the lens in.. I suggest pulling the lens outwards gently AS you simulataneously turn the camera on. You may be able to use a small suction-cup affixed to the lens to do this :) you could hold the lens-cover open with tape so the cover is less likely to be damaged.. good luck, this problem is common, annoying, and usually not worth repairing (*although with some cameras it can be done again and again!)
the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered
though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and
the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)
Hi, Same problem. Somebody had suggested gentle tapping. With nothing to loose if it doesnt work my wife banged it more than gently onto a desk and it started working. Hurrah! Dont blame us if it breaks.
