I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!


I had the same problem and checked the manual. If you haven't used the camera in a while and there were either no batteries or dead batteries in it, put in new batteries, keep it off, and WAIT a few minutes. Then try to turn it on. This helped with P ... Pentax Digital Cameras
