    Well I have a similar problem, the lens goes black, I hear a buzz then a "blip" sound - it flashes up "program mode" and then nothing. I plug it into my computer and the camera can be switched on, stays on; I unplug from the computer and it displays the last picture no problem. But then I cannot change the mode, nor switch the camera off. The lens stays open.

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.

First step would be to reset the camera via your menu options. If this does not fix the issue, the camera likely requires service.

Maybe.
But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.

Lens extends after power, then buzzes, then goes back in and shuts off. It was working not too long ago. And I haven't dropped it. But I just tried to use it and it doesn't want to work. The battery seems...

I couldn't fix my Pentax Optio S10, but this is the best web site I found to address the problem we both have with lens extending, buzzing, then shutting off. I took my camera apart, and found that my lens was cracked around the edges.
