I have a box full of dropped digital cameras. So far haven't been able to locate a trouble shooting info source. I am told that this is the worst thing to happen short of dropping in the water.

Lens keeps movin in and out (Pentax M20)


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

Lens stuck in the out postion


Hi,

Did you try taking out the batteries out for a few hours to reset the camera? Did you eliminate the possibility that the batteries can be the cause of your problem?

Hi there, I have a Pentax Optio M20, which I bought for my daughter 9/12/2006. The camera was accidentally dropped while it was "ON". Its lens was out when it dropped. Now the lens is...


Replace the camera is the best thing - it is not likely to be able to be fixed.
And worse the 'Repairer' if found will charge for telling you it cant be fixed

Maybe.
But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.
