Hay there i have a pentax s50 the lens is stuck open and it only turns on for about 2 secnds and then turns off can u help


The symptoms you described are normally power related. First make sure that your batteries are fully charged - batteries that are more than a year old will frequently not accept or hold the charge needed to operate the camera. Second, check the contacts on the batteries and inside the camera. Rub them with a soft, dry cloth to remove any corrosion that may have formed on them, then recharge the batteries for several hours. NOTE: heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, sandpaper, etc.

A second cause for your problem, especially if the camera has recently been dropped, is lens damage. If the battery/power steps don't cure the problem, your camera may need professional repair. If that's the case, I recommend that you take it to an authorized dealer/repair point (NOT the camera department in a chain store), and also contact Pentax customer service on line to arrange repairs. Make sure that you get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit to anything. The cost of a repair can approach the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

Chager for the pentax cmra


There is no charger for the S50. It uses standard AA batteries. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them using a separate charger. AA chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Camera turns on, then right back off


I ended up calling Pentax Customer Service, who told me that this indicates an internal problem with the camera. So, I sent it to Pentax to get it fixed. I'm told turn-around time is usually 2-3 weeks, and that I'll be called with a cost estimate before repairs are made. My fingers are crossed!

Get it repaired under warranty. Sounds like a logic circuit problem.

Dead?


Have exactly the same prob, my camera worked for 3 years without any probs, except that the alkaline batteries didn't have a long life...tried rechargeable batteries as well, but since three weeks ago it simply says, "batteries depleted", nothing works, tried everything...sending it to Pentax after the warranty is over is far more expensive than buying a new cam...really sorry for that, but don't think I gonna buy a new Pentax again...

Digital camera problem


The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label. There is a possibility it could be card fault. But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though] Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.

Pentaxs50 turns on lense does not extend memory full displays on Lcd then it turns off.


throw it in the garbage and get a less expensive Samsung digimax s500 for less with better quality and features.. What a mistake in purchasing a Pentax. I wrote to Pentax for I had the same problem. Answer, send it in for repairs with a cost if it is not undaer warranty. Not even a hint as to what may be the problem from them! Pentax, No thanks!
