Optio E-10

What's your opinion of Pentax Optio E-10 ?
I picked one up for the wife at a garage sale, she doesn't like technology so simple is better.
First off it didn't want to run on any batteries, I tried 5 different sets, NiMH and alkyline, until eventually with NiMH it will now stay on for a few minutes.
Secondly the photos are terrible, they are blurry and dark.

Freshly charged batteries work ok but don't know for how long, and just worked out the EV needed resetting but the photos are still not what I'd call real clear,

I have owned a couple Optio cameras, and they are a lot better than I would have thought--when they are working. I have had to toss two of them so far because dirt got into the mechanism and into the image. Uneconomic to service, so these are disposable cameras. The one Optio that I have left (an Optio e-30) does a very credible job. Also very small, easy to carry, and uses cheap AA batteries. You just need to find one in clean user condition and you will be good to go.
