Try drying the camera out - mine did this after it got wet. After a few days it still didn't work so I put it in front of a fan heater [not too close] for half an hour and after that it was fine.

Have a faulty Pentax, lens comes out beeps then goes back in, in addition the screen is broke. Is the lens problem related to the screen.


The lens problem is NOT related to the screen. A broken screen will not affect the lens, and you can still take pictures even with a broken LCD screen. The lens problem is either a bad lens assembly or a bad main board. It is almost always a bad lens assembly. I can replace the lens assembly AND LCD screen for a total of $85, or Pentax will do it for about $180. In my opinion, it is not worth fixing.

I can use this camera for parts.

Pentax camera optio a10 won't retract


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly, or a bad main board. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open or close all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Pentax Optio A30 - turns off when I zoom in


This might sound a bit silly, but as I have posted earlier I had a similar problem As soon as he lens came out ready to take pictures it retracted and turned off. Because i haave decided to buy another camera I held the Optio in my right hand and banged it into the palm of my left hand. No great shock to the camera, but hey presto it now works. Not sure if I can rely on it though......what does anyone else think about this?

Power keeps shutting down.


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly, but you did not mention if it seems to be fully extending or not. If it is sticking, it will usually buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This sounds like what may be happening. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90.
