Question about Pentax Optio S7 Digital Camera
Normally, the zooming lens will retract back to its origin if there's something blocking its mechanism when it is powered-up either externally or internally.
I just hope that in your case it is external. But if not, probably it is its focusing lens gear is not aligned or wear out (internal mechanical problem), and only Tech support can handle this.

I had this same exact problem with my optio s7, and couldn't find an answer online to fix it.
I tried tapping the camera on a table (not too hard - just a firm tap), and it works normally now. I know this sounds a bit extreme, and perhaps you have already solved your problem, but this solved a lot of frustration for me.
