    I turn on the Pentax Optio 60 with good batteries in it and it comes up "lens error" then shuts down. I see there are several with this problem why doesn't Pentax recall this camera and either fix the problem or send us a new one???? I have purchased a new Cannon camera now and I would not ever buy a Pentax again.

    As with the other customers purchasing the Pentax Optio 60- even with new batteries- my camera reads "lens error" and shuts off. Any solution? It's pretty damn disgusting since I can't use it.....

The same thing happened with my camera, I gave it to a freind for her husband to look at it. He said when turning on face the lens side down (to the ground) when turning off hold lens side up right (to the sky). this worked for mine. I don't know if he did anything else to it but when I zoomed I got lens error. I did what he said and it took several tries but it did work... please post if this helps you.

When you turn the camera on the lense opens and the camera shuts off with the lense still open. I turn on again and the lense closes and then shuts off.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

I am getting a Lens error on my Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera. How do I fix it?


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Lens error on my camera


In most cases this isn't a mechanical problem, it's the component board that runs the auto-focus. This is a common issue, the only way to completely resolve it however is to have it repaired by the manufacturer.

As this was a common issue, many users have stated their camera was replaced even after the 1 year warranty had expired...you may want to check with the manufacturer to see if this is the case with yours as well.

Lens error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras.
There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
