HI. this seems to be a battery scanning fault in the programming. try to reset the board by pulling the battery and removing all power of 30 minutes. completely drain all power from this unit for 30 minutes. if this message continues after you have rest the programming, this will confirm a serious fault within the internal program. you will have to send this device back to a pentax repair terminal for reprogramming.

Hi there - I just experienced this problem with a Pentax Optio S30 (it appears to be pretty common). The fix I discovered (that works), is to insert your batteries (make sure they're fresh), and then press and hold the "on" button plus "Menu" button, together at the same time. Hold until the firmware resets (a message will pop up on screen and the camera will reset). Voila! It works again for as long as the batteries are in and operational. Also note that in my case, if the batteries are taken out, I have to go thru the reset process again, but at least I have the camera back up and running. Hope this helps others!!

Something is depleting the battery or the problem is the battery itself. (Those power antenna is the worst depletion of battery.) Unplug the negative terminal for five minutes and see if it starts or just unplug the negative terminal and charge the battery for ten minutes and then reconnect the negative to see if it starts. (Insert car key and turn to the second position.) Once, I even have a wire from the Starter's positive side ready to contact the battery positive. The car started this way.

Camera will not come on. I bought new battery for it and still nothing


As long as the battery is fully charged, if it doesn't work, the only solution is to return it to the maker for repair.

With items like this, the battery depletes over time itself even if it isn't used. I have some very good rechargeable batteries that will deplete in my camera if left for 3 months.

I have the same problem with my Coolpix L100. On 27 December 2010 after taking a few shots with flash, using rechargable batteries for one year, it displayed in Hungarian that the batteries are depleted, but after I have recharged them, the camera did not start again anymore, displaying in continue that the batteries are depleted, and it turn off itself after a few seconds. I think that the problem is with the sensor of the camera that should measure the battery status, because even if I had new batteries it desplayed an icon with half battery but I never let it depleted totally so far. Now I am wondering if NIKON will offer free service for it as I have bought it just about 16 months ago in the Romanian DOMO market chain.
