Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
I turn on my camera, screen comes on for a second, lens rotates a little then the thing shuts off. Lens is stuck in the out postion. I have the same problem, and it started after I dropped the camera in the sand. I have tried cleaning sand out of the zoom lens, and even sprayed WD40. To no avail. If you press "delete" + "menu" + on/off then it shows "version 1.0". pressing any key causes some type of self check. I can only asume that the lens mechanism is still stuck, by a grain of sand. Help please..
Did you try taking out the batteries out for a few hours to reset the camera? Did you eliminate the possibility that the batteries can be the cause of your problem?
