Having problems with your Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera ?

Pentax A10 won't power on

\015 I have a pentax a10 and when I push the "on" button, the lens pops out and sometimes the screen says "battery depleted" even though it's fully charged and shuts down. Otherwise the lens pops out and pops back in and shuts down. Tried brand new battery, same thing happens.\015

Answers :

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull to make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.

\015\012Greetings, Ron Timmermans.
I've seen a few online posts about this while I was looking for answers because the same thing is happening with my w10. It's just over a year, and when I turn it on it seems like it is trying to start up, does a couple of beeps, and then powers down.

\015\012It's too bad, I LOVED this camera, and have since bought a sony which I detest, but if this is common I can't afford to be replacing the pentax every year. very sad.
