Question about Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera
I can turn my camera on but the shutter does not open and then I get lenses error. The camera will automatically power off. What do I do to fix this problem?
Your shutter is driven by a small motor attached to the lens assmbly. It could be that which has died or more likely you have a sticky shutter. A small knock or a drop of soda can stop them from opening. Try switching on and very gently with a cotton bud see if you can help open the shutters. Whatever you do don't force them and force them out of shape. You may have to do this a few times to get in sync with the power up sequence but if you can get both shutters to open fully you should be in business. If they keep sticking I've seen one guy glue them open. Personally I'd rather fix them so they do their job.
