Camera malfunction While getting ready to take a picture,my pentax optio 50 suddenly shut off with the lense extended. I changed batteries to no avail. It still won't turn on. When I depress the power button and let off, a red light flashes once then nothing. This is the first and problem I've had.What can be wrong?

    The LCD monitor screen shows settings in white lines but otherwise is a black screen.That is, not displaying color preview (i.e. no view of intended picture - there is no problem with the view finder). Your ideas would be appreciated.

Optio 555

Hi,

Is the lens totally stuck? Does it even move a little? Did you try to power cycle the camera?

I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first...

I am sorry you having that problem, and even more sorry I do not have a solution...On my Pentax Optio M10 batteries rechargeable or fresh alkaline only seem to last about 5-6 pictures before the camera deems them flat without charge and shuts off...it is so annoying I assume yours is possibly doing the same.
I suspect this to be a camera problem, I also notice the camera dos not recognize all rechargeable batteries some of them do not even get acknowledge.
If anyone gets a solution help us both....

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.

Pentaxs50 turns on lense does not extend memory full displays on Lcd then it turns off.

throw it in the garbage and get a less expensive Samsung digimax s500 for less with better quality and features.. What a mistake in purchasing a Pentax. I wrote to Pentax for I had the same problem. Answer, send it in for repairs with a cost if it is not undaer warranty. Not even a hint as to what may be the problem from them! Pentax, No thanks!
