Question about Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera
I had the same problem with my optio 50 last year. The lense was stuck out, sent it to have estimate, reported to be over $100 to fix. I said NO, and to send camera back. Got camera back with lense still out, no matter what I did, so, what did I have to loose, I tapped a corner of the camera body against a hard surface and VOILA ! the lense retracted and I could use it happily for another year. WARNING!!!!!!!! Here it is a year later and now the camera has black lcd, can display pictures previously taken, with out the comuter. LCD must be ok, but some posted a certain chip problem..oh, well, I had an extra year.....Good luck, you know it is a risk!

Its most likely the motor have you tryed pulling it appart then cleaning the motor that might do the trick? if not then you will need to buy a peplacement motor

If it is a new[ish] purchase send it back via the seller. It may be an issue with the particular model. Get onto Pentax Tech support Team- See what happens- if it is an issue then a replacement free or at moderate cost may be available. If the camera is older -there will be no economic repair option.
