My optio s6 froze up as i was extracting an image from a movie, using the built-in editing features.
it froze as it said 'saving extracted data' (or something like that), with lens extended.
camera would not respond to any buttons being pressed.
i let it run out of battery, just in case it was just taking a really long time to perform this simple task.
i haven't recharged yet, to see if this will reset the camera, but if you know about this problem, please let me know.
camera froze up. lens sticking out. won't turn on or off. changing batteries did not help.

Sounds like the LCD is faulty, but there are a number of things that can cause the LCD to play up too
Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts. Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

I don't know for sure, but it sounds like it could be a memory card problem. Have you tried it with another card or no card at all?
My S4i froze up completely from a bad sd card. The green power button would light up, but nothing else would happen. Pentax recommends Lexar or Panasonic sd cards from what I have heard. My new Lexar card hasn't had any issues.
DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable.
DV-PC Recorder has the following features.
1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder.
2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone.
(Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.)
3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk.
(Optional editing software is required to edit movies)
4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
