Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera
I was taking a series of photos at a tennis match using the zoom and the sports mode. suddenly the camera died, with the lens sticking out. new batteries did not help, nor did removing the memory card. it will not turn on and the lens is extended.
Some problems with cameras cannot be solved without taking the camera apart and checking everything.
Sorry to say such a problem may tell you that it is time to sell the camera for parts.. on a website such as Ebay for parts, repair, or AS IS.
Okay, that said, You can try something which may or may not help.
Take the camera in your hand and hit the edge into the palm of your other hand. You may also try this.. put a doubled up towel on a table or desk. Then take the camera in your hand at an angle an "bump" it onto the desk or table where the towel is. This may shake up the system inside to cause the connections to work.These could damage the camera even more, but because it is not working anyway, you may gain.
Of course this may not always work, if something is really wrong with the inside system or wiring.
