Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
The little removable door on a Pentax lens hood, is it used to access a filter such as a Polarizer which needs to be turned? Or am I completely off course?

Yes, it is a neat innovation. Be careful though, it is easy to lose. Someone suggested drilling two small holes, one in the insert and one in the hood, and connecting it with a small thin line.

You couldn't be more on-course if you had a GPS and compass. Yes, the little door on the underside of Pentax plastic petal-style lens hoods is to allow access to adjusting polarizing filters without removing the entire hood.

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre as it canbe failure of the control/drive unit.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Pentax service as you do not have to run around for spares.
