Hi gazjohnson. Welcome to the Pentax forums. I know absolutely nothing about the Isle of Sheppey, except now I know its name !!! I am sure it is a beautiful place, and I am looking forward to seeing some of your photographs so you can educate me. Good to have you here.

A concise introduction, as one would expect from a fellow engineer!

Welcome to Pentax Forums. Any idea how your Q came to be a non-runner?

Hi Gaz, welcome to the forums. Here's hoping we can help you get the Q going or, failing that, up and running another Pentax camera

The Q just won't turn on, I put a freshly charged battery in it, set the time & date, took a picture then turned it off and put it in the bag. At the church I took it out and then nothing !!!
According to the net it is a common occurrence, back to Pentax for repair I think.

In several years of Q use, I've not heard of that being common. I'd check the battery before I sent it anywhere for repair, unless you've already done that, of course.
