Question about Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera
When I turn on the power the camera comes on but the lens won't come out! Help!
Ckeenly, I don't have a solution I have the same problem. I'm wodering if you ever found a solution. When I try to turn on my S4i it gives four quick beeps then nothing. It was working fine until I downloaded some pictures to my computer. The next time I tried to take a picture this it gave me the 4 beeps thing. Please, let me know if you know what the fix is. Thanks, Dick firstname.lastname@example.org

Had the same problem with my Canon SD550. I'm guessing that after the lens tries to erect itself the camera powers down? If this is the case, your lens is cocked perhaps from being dropped or bent in some way. There also might be debris lodged in there. This could result from keeping it in a purse or a pocket without a case. Try sticking a thin piece of paper to try and remove the debris if this seems to be the case.

I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a last option. As my suspicion was the zoomlens I took out two crews of the motor that operates it. Now the motor has a bit more space to move. It seemed to be too tight against the gears so it could cause an overload. After that it worked perfectly. I made pictures for hours without having the same fault again. Be carefull too make notes where all the tiny screws belong of the casing. And maybe it will be enough to just loosen the motorscrews, but leaving them out will not make it fall out of it's place. I hope someone can use this information.

I have the same problem, which is not one but only a symptom : this problem occurs if the camera doesn't appreciate the batteries you feed it with ! use another brand, another model, or if rechargeable use another set of fully charged batteries...
I consider this problem coming from faulty design of the camera which consumes batteries very fast AND is very sensitive to the battery type you're using :-(
