If it's still under warranty, the best thing to do is to take to an authorized service center.

But if no longer, try doing the following:

If the lens is having a hard time turning out, try pushing and pulling on it as I turned it on a ton of times. If it still wont work, twist the middle middle section of the lens upon turning on the camera.

As suggested by others, try some slight percussive maintenance by tapping it lightly around the lens area with your fingers before turning it on.

    Hi there marguerite,

    Just want to follow up on your Pentax Optio. Has it been fixed? If still not, try the following:








    Normal
    0


    false
    false
    false







    MicrosoftInternetExplorer4









    /* Style Definitions */
    table.MsoNormalTable
    {mso-style-name:"Table Normal";
    mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;
    mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;
    mso-style-noshow:yes;
    mso-style-parent:"";
    mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
    mso-para-margin:0in;
    mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt;
    mso-pagination:widow-orphan;
    font-size:10.0pt;
    font-family:"Times New Roman";
    mso-ansi-language:#0400;
    mso-fareast-language:#0400;
    mso-bidi-language:#0400;}



    Turn on the camera and shake it facing downward... after
    about twice doing it.... it worked back... and take note.... when it works,
    check for possible particles that got stuck on the lens....

    Or as you turn on the camera, then the lens is trying to move out, push it with your thumb again back in. Try this several times.



    One user was able to get help with this solution. Please let me know.

    Hope it will work for you too.

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.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error


Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
