Having problems with your Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera ?

As soon as I switch camera on it switches off. Batteries are good.

Answers :

What kind of batteries are you using? Make sure they are rechargable. Normal batteries are not \015\012strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or \015\012rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much \015\012stronger and should give you a good battery life.
If you are already using these, I suggest you take it back to where you bought it.

Hope this helps,

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera.
