Answers :

Henrik,

I ordered the gears, but unfortunately, they didn't fit. Sorry, I should have posted an update. I'll see if I have any spare from the cameras that I've repaired. I do know that I have spares for a530/a540, but not sure about a550/a560 cameras.

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work.

When I turn the camera on or off and the lens goes out and in it feels like it is binding up - like gears that are not aligned properly. I can see and feel that the lens is struggling to extend and retract. Sometimes the lens will not retract at all and I have to turn the camera off again. The problem appears to be getting worse. Any ideas?
