20 Most Recent Pentax Optio W90 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Why not look in the manual to see if there are any settings you have inadvertently changed ? BTW, you don't need a tall building - knocking it off a table would probably have the same effect.

Per Evan89's remark above, on these units the "shutter" button fails in the "on" or "down" position. There are a lot of reports on the internet. As soon as you turn the camera on it charges the flash and takes one or more pictures. It won't respond to other controls because it senses that the shutter bitton is depressed. A side effect is that the battery drains quickly.
I'm looking around to see if I can order a replacement switch assembly since these cameras are easy to take apart.

Check to make sure that the capture button is not getting stuck in the down position.

if you have condensation on the inside of the glass your camera has been shorted out maybe letting it dry out for a few days would work but you can also try a local camera shop and see if they can help.
