Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Built-in flash not working


Please shoot in P mode. In P mode it will use the flash if you pop it up and not use it if it is down.

The flash uses LOTS of battery power. If you battery is weak the flash may take a long time to recycle (charge).

The Flash must be popped up and READY before you can use it. The flash is charged or READY when the RED light is on.

I hope this helps.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Lens won't go back in


some times if the batteries get wet it will short the system and it won't turn back on... if you dropped it something may have shifted inside blocking the messaging systems inside the camera. i would take it to a local camera shop.

On Camera Flash Problem and Lens Question


According to Pentax, the pop up flash does greatly reduce battery life. So, if you want them to last longer, use an external flash. The built-in flash is too low powered an too prone to produce red eyes to be of much use anyway. Any lens that goes from 28-300 is going to be much less sharp than one with a shorter zoom range, even if the lens designer uses such heroic measures as aspherical elements and LD glass. Consider the Tokina AT-X 24-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens as a very good alternative to the Tamron.
