Sounds like the camera might have some hardware problems. Have you tried pulling the battery, leaving it out for a while, and then putting it back in?

Is the lens totally retracted ?
My Optio P80 did the trick once or twice : the lens did not get totally back, and at power-up it just beeped and shut down.
The trick I found was to remove battery, push the lens back gently, then refit battery and turn it on again. Strangely, the couple of times it did it, was under pretty hot conditions (between 30 and 35C), although I don't know if it is the cause of this behaviour.

Remove the battery. Leave the camera for a while. Recharge the batteries and try again. That should do the trick. I have two M40 and both works fine. i never experience it. However I had a Optio 50L and it did it once (AA batteries). I let the camera rest for a while without the batteries. I put a new set and then it work.
