Your Camera is either out of battery of uncharged.The buzzing sound is the sound it makes when the camera zooms in,most cameras automaticly do this when started up.The reason for your pictures being blurry,could just be off focused.Hope it helped

Lens won't zoom back in or out


I have tried to pull my camera apart to fix this and nothing has come of it. It just all of a sudden did this for no reason. I thought It might be that I just needed to change the batteries and it would fix it but I think its a bigger problem than that.

Lens problem, no zooming capabilities and blurry images


This would need to be serviced something is wrong with the auto focus and this is inside the lens housing. I would take it into a camera shop and have the examin the autofocus.

My Pentax Optio S7 has developped a fault. When I turn it on, the zoom pops out, the screen lights up but it makes a buzzing sound then the zoom retracts and it switches itself off.


The gearing for the lens has become damaged and the lens can no longer fully extend. As a result, the camera detects a fault when attempting to extend the lens and shuts itself off. The most frequent cause of this kind of damage is dropping the camera with the lens extended. Always used the wrist strap!

Unfortunately, there is no way to correct this at the consumer level for this camera. It is very compactly designed, and the lens is the hardest to get at. Even if you were able to get to it, you'd still need the replacement part for whatever has become damaged. You will need to return this for repairs - although with the price of this camera, buying a new one will probably be cheaper.

Buzzing sound, wont come on!


Don't try and manually push in the lens at first...the buzzing is a warning letting you know that something is wrong with the camera. By accidently removing the batteries during shut down you interupted the shut down sequence. Try and turn on the camera and immediately press the play button on the back. This should reset the camera. If not and if you are under warranty it needs to be serviced. If you are not under warranty then you can try and push the lens down. Don't use a lot of force but try and gently do it.
