Pentax Optio S5i - Zoom Lens Stuck IN.......!!

Hi, my 4yr old unfortuneatley got hold of my camera and now it will not turn on. When pressing on/off switch green light comes on for about 30 secs there are 3 beeps and then light goes off. It appears that the zoom lens is stuck in..does anyone have any ideas how I might rectify this as I have phoned a repair shop and the quote seemed very high just to look at it without any parts etc. Thanks

You can try removing the battery and leaving out overnight then putting it back and charging it up then try the power. This has worked for some people but not all.

Hold the OK key for 5 seconds while powering on the camera. this unlocks the menu and key modes.

SOURCE: Pentax Optio A30 - turns off when I zoom in

This might sound a bit silly, but as I have posted earlier I had a similar problem As soon as he lens came out ready to take pictures it retracted and turned off. Because i haave decided to buy another camera I held the Optio in my right hand and banged it into the palm of my left hand. No great shock to the camera, but hey presto it now works. Not sure if I can rely on it though......what does anyone else think about this?

When I turn the set on green leds appear for about 30 sec then it swicthes to red stanby and flashes 5 times intermitently


Hi,

May I know what is the exact model number of your TV, it is located at the rear cover, manual, and on the receipt. It will help diagnose accurately where the fault came from and confirm the blinking error code.

Alarm light on and u051 error mx310


Hi

You’ll need to reset your printer to clear the ink counters, after resetting it’ll not display the error code again. Follow this procedure to reset the printer--

1. Power off the printer.
2. Holding the stop/reset button, press and hold power button also. Hold both buttons together for 5 secs.
3. Still holding the power button, release the stop/reset buton, then press the stop/reset button twice.
4. Release power button (the screen should now say 'Service Mode').
5. Wait until the power button lights steady green, then press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press. On the 3rd press the indicator should turn steady orange.
6. Press the power button once, (the orange light should go off).
7. Open the printer and remove both cartridges. Wait for 10 seconds. Replace the cartridges and close printer. Wait for 30 seconds.
8. Press the power button, and wait until printer has shut down.
9. Press power button to power up. The printer will feed one piece of paper, then ask you to set the language.
10. The page counter is now reset.

Please rate the solution & revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
