Optio M20 Stuck on Zoom in and out!

Hi

I was on holiday in spain last week and my camara froze at the Nou Camp of all places!

When i turn it on the Pentax optio screen appears. The camara will zoom in and out, a blurry image will appear and then it will turn itself off. It makes a jamming sort of noise and bleeps as if it is to take a photo. Is there any solutions to this problem?

You have a timing problem,the gears for your housing is out of calibration with your focus lens inside of the housing. you must take the camera apart to correct the problem.there is a flywheel type of ajustment in the top of the camera that can be turned to bring the camera back to its reset position. it is bad to keep turning on the camera as this may danage the gear that is out of time.

Hi,

Did you try taking out the batteries out for a few hours to reset the camera? Did you eliminate the possibility that the batteries can be the cause of your problem?

By recharging the battery, and then restart the camera, it may just work.

Because you were working on a movie in the camera at the time it quit, that file may be corrupted.

It would be interesting to see what has happened on this problem.

You certainly need to use high capacity Ni-Mah or lithium batteries. Using alkaline would have caused overheating and may therefore have damaged the board. You are right to ask is a repair worth it? Almost certainly the answer is no even if possible. There are usually no spare parts available. Go back to tech support and this time simply report the bare facts -'It wont stay on'. Say nothing about the battery situation. Depending on the age of the device you may be offered a reasonable swap out price.
