My new WG-3 does stay on!! HELP

Hi,
I just bought a new Pentax WG-3 and it does not stay on!!
Once charged I turned it on and then it hummms and then a low bipbipbip and it turns itself off.
I bought it to bring on vacation and I'm leaving in 4 days!!!
Is there something I can do or should I just send it back to Amazon?

Are you sure the battery is fully charged? If so, I would get the camera exchanged as there could be something wrong with it. Also, make sure the battery door is closed and that the charger is disconnected before powering it on.
