Pentax Optio 555 - Fozen with the lens stuck-out

I have a Pentax Optio 555 (3 yrs old) that hasn't worked and the lens became stuck in the extended position for a couple of weeks. It happened when the battery was almost depleted. I turned it on, the lens sticked-out, and suddenly the camera went dead. Then, I charged the battery and put it back in. However, the lens never re-treated and the camera never worked anymore. Does anyone know how to repair this problem? Any place that can fix this camera cheaply? Please help. Thanks.

Lens extends after power, then buzzes, then goes back in and shuts off. It was working not too long ago. And I haven't dropped it. But I just tried to use it and it doesn't want to work. The battery seems...

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.
