Pentax Q: Auto shutoff issue upon power on

Hi...apologies if there is a similar thread to this which i am not aware of.

My wife's Pentax Q suddenly has this issue of auto shutdown immediately after powering on. It briefly shows the live view on the screen then immediately shows "Dust Removal" and shuts off right away. I already did try using anonther Pentax battery and SD card but the problem still persists.

Any ideas on how to resolve the issue? Thanks.

My best guess is that it's still a battery issue. Are you sure the battery charger is working? Are both batteries 3 or more years old or were they both kept in a high temperature environment?

Mine did that once with the 01 mounted. I tried everything, but no joy.

Eventually I unmounted and remounted the lens - and it booted just fine. I suppose I had changed from th 02 and misaligned the contacts just slightly.

Thanks...hmmm, not quite sure though if the charger is working okay. Its LED is green when battery is plugged in and turns off when its charged.
Anyway, will try charging again both batteries and see if it works. Else, may need to see if its the battery or the charger that is faulty.
