Having problems with your Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera ?
Can't get my camera to turn on
\015 I am unable to get my Optio S40 to power up. Every time I try to turn it on the shutter open's very very slightly, the lens doesn't come out and then it turns itself off again. It says 'Battery Depleted' but i know this is not true as I've tried loads of new batteries. Please help!!!\015
Try rechargable batteries or Duracell. Other batteries may not have sufficient charge.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history
