Pentax Optio Z10

Can anyone tell me why my camera shuts itself off after opening the shutter? I have inserted a new battery - to no avail. Thanks

Lenses can get jammed on compact cameras. If this is the case, the lens won't be able to extend and the camera will just turn itself off. If you keep on having issues, it might be time to pick up a new compact.
