How to repair Pentax Optio S10 camera-tested-solution!!

Dear Community members!
I really know how to fix this problem "stuck out lenses"-i have done the repair myself,it needs some patience,and time. It takes 1-2h if you have good mechanic-electronic skills maybe 45-Min,for me this was 1h.I would like to mention, I am IT-electronic service engineer,but anyone with good,steady hands and some skills can do it,just needs little bit of patience. You have to take pieces all the camera, unfortunately.
1.Remove the external casing unscrewing all the visible screws 2.With the cover removed flip the screen out,be carefully because this is attached with two type of connectors witch are very delicate! 3.After removing the screen you have to unscrew the 6 black screws and the CCD-sensor comes off.Very carefully!!--it has 4-springs attached and 3silver screws are holding it and of course the wiring which has a delicate connector which needs to be removed as well.Underneath of this you should be able to see the lens moving mechanism which needs to be reseated,in mine one i had to remove on of the springs from inside and reseat a plastic pin which holds the mechanism arms. That's all. 3.After that everything needs putting back in reversed order. Good luck!

community help, there is no free community help, as I can see my two previous inquiryies over a year old had no answer, so ther is no free help thanks but I'll look else where


There is community help. I do community help myself. It might be that people doing community help do not know how to solve your problem. Sometimes it requires patience when you ask for free help. :)

Lens on my camera not working I want to fix the camera myself


If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the
batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The
camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average
home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

the problem is when i switch my camera on, on the


ok so I was searching for the answer for this myself.. very hard to say, because it really depends on what happened to your camera.. Did you drop it? Did it emerge in water? But for me, I have come to the conclusion for everyone who has the problem.. it is most (99%) probably a problem with the lense.. another site told me to take it to get fiixed- or to take the battery out and wait 20 min to put it back in, because this resets it. I decided to manually open the lense myself (who knows if thats bad/good to do, but a girl's gotta take her pix!!) So anyway, i opened the lense, and turned it on- the "on again off again" msg went away. So most likely, the problem does stem to the lense not being able to be opened, so the msg pops up, if you open the lense yourself your camera works fine, when you turn it off- my closes the lense-just doesnt open it. different results for different people, but i hope this helps because it was very simple.

when I try to ''zoom'' in and out it only ''focuses'' in and out.


Focus motor stuck, usualy it happens after impact.Some TV repair shops can fix that. JVC will replace whole lense assy but it possible to repair.
