I own 4 optio S4 and they have been brilliant but i made the stupid eror of removing the battery while still powered on and the camera is now frozen. The instruction manual does warn not to do this but doesn't tellme how to remedy the problem.

No matter how many full charged batteries I install. The lens is stuck in the out position. When I try and turn the camera on all i get is a beep and shutdown. Does anyone out there have any advice??

Look forward to a reply,

Thanks

Have you tried taking the card out and switching on? Maybe you need to leave it with no battery in for aweek to allow any internal memory to reset.

Also, have you tried starting it in view only mode? (hold down the play button and press power on).

Looking at other sites, it doesn't look like anyone has ever fixed this problem!

yep you may be right. Finally got on to a pentax tech in colorado who told me to send it in for repair. Of course it is a month out of warranty.

will report back on what the problem was in a couple of weeks.
