I am having the same problem with an A10 that I have. I can turn it on by holding down the viewscreen button and view the images that are in memory, but if I just turn it on the lens never opens and the camera immediately turns itself off.

Just wondered if you'd had any responses that helped you diagnose the problem. If you could email me at brains@abacusintegration.com with any info I'd appreciate it.

Thanks much,

Bob

My pentax option A10 turned black on the screen and won't open


Since the screen went black BEFORE the lens retracted, it makes me think this is a main board problem. The only other possibility is that it is the lens assembly, but since it went black BEFORE the lens retracted, I don't think that is it. I can replace the main board for $40, or you can send it to pentax in Arizona, and they will do it for about $90.
The main board is NOT something that I would suggest anyone try to replace as a DIY project. There are too many small screws, and delicate connections to deal with.

If you just want to sell the camera as-is, I also buy all pentax a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras, in any condition.

Pentax Optio a10 turns off automatically after I turn it on


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking, it will buzz. If it fails to open 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.

Digital camera problem


The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label. There is a possibility it could be card fault. But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though] Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.
