Question about Pentax Cameras
I have an Optio L40 - it worked fine one evening and then the next day I went to review the pictures and it wouldn't work properly. When I press the on/off button, the lens comes out as usual, but then makes a really horrible sound like it's stuck, then tries focussing, then goes in and out and then repeats the process making the same noise again and then turns itself off. I have tried several times since in the hope that one time I try it will actually work! The battery is fully charged.
Hope you can help and thanks in advance for your time

Here is how I fixed this problem. I grasped the lens around the base (larger part) like you would if you were going take off a beer bottle cap.
Very gently while sliding my thumb and index finger around the lens, I rocked it back and forth. DO NOT TRY TO TWIST OR PUSH,.....It felt like it "popped" back on track.
My assumption was it was probably hit from the side, and could not retract, once it was rocked back on track, it worked fine. It felt like it loosened a tiny bit as well.
