Hi. It sounds like the pins are bent. Use a flashlight to see IG you can see them. If they are bent, try and use something flat to push back into place. If not you may have to send it in for service.

Having gone over two months without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

Try NOT using a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Digital cameras EAT batteries. Buy only the best. If you don't mind paying a lot, use lithium batteries. They last longer but, the price doesn't actually make them a savings. They are only more convenient. If you have rechargeable, they lose their ability to accept a full charge after a while. Once they've been charged about 400 times, their life gets shorter each time you use them.

The a90 error message, relates to an electronic fault on the main printed circuit board of the camera.

Read someone had the same/similar problem. Lens sensor at fault or broken. Camera not really worth the expense of a repair.

Pentax Optio... | Answered on May 10, 2008

This is probably due to a broken sensor tab inside the lens, or a failed sensor. When the lens reaches the end of its travel a small plastic tab will pass between the ends of a C shaped sensor and let the camera know the lens has reached the end of its travel. You are not hearing a safety device, you are hearing the gears actually slipping. Don't let it do that too much or you will turn one problem into two problems quite quickly. If you cant find the broken part it will require professional repair. I would advise against taking the lens assembly apart. They are extremely hard to get back together and you very well may end up with a junk camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
