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.

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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do 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, they're worth a try.

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.
