Having problems with your Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera ?

"Batteries Depleted" Whether I put new batteries or rechargeables into my camera it virtually immediately shows "battery depleted" what could the problem be


Answers :

Your problem\015\012may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

My GE A1035, which i've got about seven months ago always displays "battery exhausted" even though the battery was fully charged. I also bought new batteries to test if it was the cause but the problem was not solved. My coworker who also owned another camera borrowed the batteries from but to my surprise both batteries worked in his camera. I hope you could address this problem immediately. Thank you.

My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.


No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC c ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.

When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture.
