Your problem is that the camera is failing the seft test. Since the image gets blurry at the end of the lens check, my money would be on the lens itself. It is possible that the lens gears that help extend and retrace the lens are clogged by some mechanical obstruction. This problem cannot be fixed by the end user. Time to seek the assistance of a qualified camera tech to get it fixed.

Lens


Sorry. It is broken. The lens was most likely jammed on start up when trying to open or close when shutting down. The really bad news is that the cost to repair it is close to the cost of a new camera. (I have had several like this, casio, sony canon, nikon and olympus.)

Optio M20 Stuck on Zoom in and out!


you have a timing problem,the gears for your housing is out of calibration with your focus lens inside of the housing. you must take the camera apart to correct the problem.there is a flywheel type of ajustment in the top of the camera that can be turned to bring the camera back to its reset position. it is bad to keep turning on the camera as this may danage the gear that is out of time.

Pentax Optio S6 re-occuring problem


Greetings...

Here is the information on the lens system for the Pentax...

The Sliding Lens system is a proprietary PENTAX lens system that offsets the central lens groups from the optical lens axis and retracts the lens in two steps in the cylinder for minimized overall body depth.

I think from what you have stated, the lens system is off track, hense the noise and the blurry image...

Hope this is helpful...

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.
