Question about Pentax Optio S Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pentax Optio S - lens cover rings popped off

Dropped the camera and the outer two rings (one with writting & one all black) that cover the lens mechanics popped off. No damage to camera operations; works fine.
Are these supposed to rotate and cover the front element of the lens when it's turned off? It appears that there is some slight movement of some small pieces on the exposed surface when turning power on/off.
Have snapped them back on, but they do not move when powered off. Worried about hurting the lens operation mechanics if the rings are imporpperly seated.
Thoughts, opinions, suggestions?

Hi,
I'd be most happy to share with you how I solved my problem with the Pentax Optio S. It took a bit of clever 'problem-solving' thought and inspection. After suddying the design of each piece and the working components of the exposed lens area, I was able to identify which sections worked together appropriately.
And, I think it appropriate at this time that I ask you to purchase one of my plans in order to receive the full benefit of what I learned from my skillful thinking and examination, and thereby successfully repaired my camera.
I look forward to hearing from you.

When I switch it on it says lens error 0x0311 The camera is pentax. Optio E70L 10.1 megapixel


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

The diafragm it´s closed not


I dropped the camera and got the same problem, until I read somewhere in this site that open the camera and then tapping on the ring around the lens while power on and off several times, it will work again. I did for me. I took it apart with phillips screwdriver and I used a hard rubber caulk spreader to tap it; it has some weight but will not damage the lens if its it by mistake. Try this and will be surprised. I am the 3rd person I have read that solved it doing this. Web ready Video is good in this camera. Good luck.

I couldn't fix my Pentax Optio S10, but this is the best web site I found to address the problem we both have with lens extending, buzzing, then shutting off. I took my camera apart, and found that my lens was cracked around the edges.
