My pentax optio s10 does not retact lens


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.

Pentax Optio A10 Camera Lens won't retract


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking open or closed, it will usually make a buzzing noise. If it fails to open or close all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Power keeps shutting down.


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly, but you did not mention if it seems to be fully extending or not. If it is sticking, it will usually buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This sounds like what may be happening. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona.

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 S6 re-occuring problem


Greetings...

Here is the information on the lens system for the Pentax...

The Sliding Lens system is a proprietary PENTAX lens system that offsets the central lens groups from the optical lens axis and retracts the lens in two steps in the cylinder for minimized overall body depth.

I think from what you have stated, the lens system is off track, hense the noise and the blurry image...

Hope this is helpful...

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.
