Question about Pentax Optio S10 Digital Camera
Most likely the small drive gear has skipped a tooth. If you turn the camera on and off you will here a high frequency "buzz" noise which is the small stepper motor trying to move the lense in and out.
If you don't hear this, then the stepper motor may have gone bad.
If you do here the buzz noise, try gently the tapping the extended lense on a rigid table top as this may re-align the small gear drive allowing the lense to retract.
I had this happen on mine and it works fine now.
