My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off. After cleaning the extended lens barrel each time it extended, I found it would open further each time. It nows extends fully, but still retracts immediately thereafter.

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off.

I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks
