My camera is all messed up It's a Pentax Optio Z10. When I turn it on it is stuck in "Green Mode" then after a few seconds, turns off. If I press the "Playback" button it will come on and I can review pictures, but can't take new ones. When I close the slider the power stays on. I have to remove battery to shut it down. Looks like lots of other people have had this problem but I haven't seen one good solution . Please help
