Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Optio won't stay powered on.


\015 When I press the on/off button the screen lights uo and displays PENTAX, the lens zooms out but it gets to the end of it's travel and it sounds like a safety device is preventing damage by slipping the gears for a second then it zooms in again and shuts down. It seem like whatever limits lens travel is not set correctly. I've had a look inside but I cant see any stripped gears or broken/loose parts. Has anybody else experience of this ?\015\012I have the same problem, when I turn on my pentax 57 optic the lens extends but it beeps and then retracts and shuts off. Any solution pls.!!!\015

Hi drdaved It seems to be a battery cotact problem. The battery contact pins might have some rust. Try to clean them with a rubber and alcohol (after the rubber)

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up. The battery is fully charged (as well as the backup battery) so that isn't the problem. Is there a "camera reset" procedure for this camera? Other ideas?
