Pentax a30 problem

Hi guys, I've got a Pentax Optio A30, which wont seem to boot correctly.

It switches on, the lens comes out..then shoots back in and switches itself off.

If i boot it via a usb cable I'm able to get into the menu/mode settings etc, but still have the same error with the lens.

any suggestions?

Pentax camera optio a10 won't retract


It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly, or a bad main board. If it is sticking, it will buzz. 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.

My Pentax A30 will not stay switched on


Try drying the camera out - mine did this after it got wet. After a few days it still didn't work so I put it in front of a fan heater [not too close] for half an hour and after that it was fine.

Problems uploading video on Pentax Optio A30.


if you dont have a codex on your computer (if you're using windows media player) you wont be able to play your videos because this is a requirement for most of the newer pentax.
read your manual for more details
