Question about Pentax Optio M10 Digital Camera
It wont retract the lens when turned off, and when i try to turn it on, it only does long enough for the pentax logo to show up, then turns itself off again. ive tried new batteries and removing the memory card, but it still doesnt work.
I had the same problem the lens wouldn't retract and it would only stay on long enough for the logo to show...I found out my lens changed slightly cooked to oneside I gently moved the lens to center and now it works great...look at the lens and see if this helps

I know these are old (a year now), but I, too, had this problem. My son dropped our Pentax Optio with the lens drum up and it stayed stuck that way, turning on and shutting off immediately thereafter. The thing eventually fixed itself after repeated opening and closing on my part, finally just closing and working normally again. I maybe helped the process a long a little by fidgeting with the drum a little, but was gentle in this. Just give it some time and don't give up so easily.

This is possibly some dirt has got into the lens barrel thus making things grind to a halt. Do you have access to a photo store or camera repair shop? I don't think there is much a normal user can do here.
