Thanks Ben. This is my daughter's camera and her husband had already tried removing the battery. I suggested he leave it out longer than a few seconds, but I haven't heard if that worked. The cam is still under warranty. She's only had it a couple of weeks.

My first MX-1 had a similar problem with starting. It was sent back to Pentax through my retailer and Pentax replaced it with a new one which has been working fine for the last six months.

There is obviously a fault if yours it's only a couple of weeks old. I would suggest to your daughter to do the same and take it back to the retailer for exchange asap.The MX-1 it's a fantastic little camera and she should enjoy it, not worry about it.
