Did the camera fall?
Try to take out the battery and start again. Do not use too much pressure with hand otherwise you could damage the retractor motor or gear.

Unless you familiar with opening small screw, it is best advised to take it to the nearest Pentax service center. You might damage it more.

My pentax option A10 turned black on the screen and won't open


Since the screen went black BEFORE the lens retracted, it makes me think this is a main board problem. The only other possibility is that it is the lens assembly, but since it went black BEFORE the lens retracted, I don't think that is it. I can replace the main board for $40, or you can send it to pentax in Arizona, and they will do it for about $90.
The main board is NOT something that I would suggest anyone try to replace as a DIY project. There are too many small screws, and delicate connections to deal with.
You can contact me at: mrfixitmark at comast dot net

If you just want to sell the camera as-is, I also buy all pentax a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras, in any condition.

Optio 555


Hi,

Is the lens totally stuck? Does it even move a little? Did you try to power cycle the camera?

Recently my digital camera dropped on the ground while the lens was out readyto take a photo.


you will either have to send it to pentax for repair or a local camera repair company.

I don't know any repair places in new Zealand. so you will have to ask around local camera shops or look online for a place.

Lens does not retract


I'm looking for a solution to this too. The repair is going to cost more than the camera did. SUCKS!!!

I think my camera's stuck


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
