I had same problem with Optio S5i a while ago. Sounds daft but I read that if you pinch the base of the camera between thumb and fingers, it can somehow affect the contacts. It worked for mine and saved a load of cash! KL

When we turn on the S60 it makes a buzzing sound and stays on momentarily and then shuts down. What might be the problem?


It might be any number of things, but the buzzing would seem to indicate a short in the camera. It could be the battery or any one of a number of electronic components.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

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...

When the camera is turned on, the lens extends, makes a slight buzzing sound and then retracts and the camera turns off.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error


Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
