k100d Super emergency!

Short and simple...........go to turn the switch on, nothing powers up but the shutter his into rapid fire and nothing else. Solutions? Hoping it might just be the batteries. This just happened to meer like minutes ago.

I was going to suggest charging the batteries. I have a K200D that does some odd things when the batteries get low, although nothing quite this extreme.

So, by the numbers...
Check the battery contacts and insert a spare batteries if available... if using non-rechargables, check in other devices...
Rechargables drain overtime so recharge and try again.
Look at the rear of the lens for condensation... water inside.
Look at LCD for condensation.
Look inside hatches for condensation
Check if camera response with SD card removed and also inserted... assuming batteries are good.
Remove all batteries and turn camera to on for a minute - turn off - replace the batteries and turn on.

??? Let us know what you find???
