I just had this same thing happen to me. I had just put in the freshly charged Sony batteries that came with the camera. I tried another user's idea of switching out the batteries (and happened to have some fresh Duracells) and it worked! Thank goodness-I was not looking forward to a $125 repair.

My Pentax Optio M4 suddenly started to shut down and power off after starting up. It starts up normally, then gives 3 short beeps, then shuts down as if I had just switched it off. I have recharged the battery but the problem still remains. I cannot reset the camera to factory defaults as it doesn't stay on long enough for me to access the memu options.

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens. I turned it on and the lens closed and then opened again and wouldn't focus. I turned it off and the lens won't shut. How weird is that? It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

Forgets settings My optio s40 worked well until just after the warranty expired. Then it started acting up. It maintains the default settings in auto mode. It allows me to change them, but when I shut it off and power up again, it has returned to the default settings. In Pict mode, it maintains EV +1, AWB as flourescent lighting and image size as one higher than the smallest size. Again, I can change the settings, but when I shut it off and power up again, these are the settings it has. Any idea

Help The last time I used my camera a maybe a week or two ago, it shut off because the batteries died and the lens never pushed back in. So, I just now went to turn it on after putting in new duracell batteries in, which I have used all different kinds in my camera, I have it sent so that the Samsung icon is on as it starts up. So that came on and after a second you can see on the LCD screen but it is blurry and after a few seconds I hear 3 loud annoying beeps and then it shuts off. What could b
