Optio E60 won't open


rather inexperienced user (or newbie ) here...

I own a Optio E60 for about a year or so, got is as a gift from my girlfriend

It worked just fine for the first 4 or 5 months, yet I didn't get to use it that often (once a week or so).
At some point, it started to bug me when I was trying to set it on.After pushing the power button, the LED at the back lights green, then it blinks red 3 times and then nothing...
I switched to new batteries, it worked fine for the first 5-6 times I set it on and then it started doing the same thing.
I switched to newer and more expensive batteries...but eventually I came across the same problem.
The thing is, I didn't use it that often so I didn't really mind.But I think I have to fix this...
Is there anything I can do on my own, or do I have to take it back to the store?
If so, what's the usual duration of the warranty for this model?

Thanx in advance,
