Question about Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My optio was dropped with the lens going down first. now my camera makes noises & the screen is black. how do i go about fixing it?

Basically i was taking pictures with my friend, and on accident i dropped my camera with the lens going down first [it was turned on], it appeared to be alright, but it started to make noises, and now when you turn it on it goes to the OPTIO screen, and then turns black, and continues with the noises. How am i able to fix my problem? my friend was handing me my camera (turned on) and i accidentally dropped it. it looked fine except for the lens was dented in a little. this happened once before and it said lens malfunction. i pulled it out and it was fine so i did the same this time and then i just turned it off. when i got back to it though, after i turned it on, the screen is all purple and has lines and the picture won't show. i need serious help, PLEEEEASE!!! (all the functions work and i can see pictures i've already taken, so it is the lens for sure)

Looks like the gears or retracting mechanics are damaged.

its problably not worth to take it in, to get it fixed (depends on the camera). but most likely sound like the gears are busted.

you be paying for repairs that costing waaay more than the camera.

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.

My son dropped my Pentax Optio S12 now the lens won't retract and when I try to turn the camera on it just powers down and switches off

Your camera has a small chance of recovering from this very common fault: it's usually just caused by debris or dirt on the mechanism but in this case it will be either due to dislodged or broken components. You can try some of the fixes listed in this link , fix #7 is the one you're really aiming at but it's an all or nothing repair. Many retractable lens cameras have fragile zoom assemblies, but in my experience the Optio S12 has a poorer design in this respect that most and seems particularly prone to the fault.

If your camera shows absolutely no external evidence of having been dropped, then you may instead wish to see if Pentax will repair or replace it under warranty or even as a goodwill repair if just outside the warranty as it's just possible that they have identified a fault in design, materials or manufacturing of the lens unit. It would be best to say that the fault occurred out of the blue. if you choose this option, DO NOT make any attempt to fix this yourself. You also need to be aware that if Pentax judge that the fault was due to abuse (being dropped) they will offer to fix the camera at cost or will return it to you for a small fee. Given that the whole lens assembly must be replaced, and that you can buy a new replacement for around £100, you might decide that a paid repair makes no economic sense.

I sincerely hope that you get your camera working again and that you found my reply to be of use in deciding which approach to take. If so, please rate my answer.

Power keeps shutting down.

It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly, but you did not mention if it seems to be fully extending or not. If it is sticking, it will usually buzz. If it fails to open all the way, it will turn itself back off. This sounds like what may be happening. 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.

Frozen lens and shutter

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately

My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.
