Having problems with your Pentax Optio M40 Digital Camera ?

My pentax optio m40 will not stay on

\015 After returning from the beach last week, I attempted to use my camera several days later. Now, when I attempt to turn it on, the lens comes out, attempts to focus, the camera beeps a few times, and then the lens retracts and the camera turns itself off. The camera did not get wet nor was it dropped. Could fine sand particles or something similar cause this?\015\012Is there anything I can do myself to correct the problem?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012\015\012Blake\015

Is the Pentax Optio S4i compatible with newer memory cards? When I put my new SanDisk Ultra 4BG SD card in, the camera turns on, but the screen stays black for a few minutes, then gives the message "Memory Card Error". My old SanDisk 1BG card works fine.
