Lense will not retract even after camera has been charged

\015 Camera lense will not retract\015

Answers :

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on\015\012display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing\015\012batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting\015\012camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try an\015\012easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them)\015\012while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode\015\012selector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • \015\012
  • Main board faulty.
  • \015\012
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • \015\012
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.
