Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?
Optio L40 lens won't stay out when turned on, then turns itself off
\015 Hi\015\012\015\012I have an Optio L40 - it worked fine one evening and then the next day I went to review the pictures and it wouldn't work properly. When I press the on/off button, the lens comes out as usual, but then makes a really horrible sound like it's stuck, then tries focussing, then goes in and out and then repeats the process making the same noise again and then turns itself off. I have tried several times since in the hope that one time I try it will actually work! The battery is fully charged.\015\012\015\012Hope you can help and thanks in advance for your time\015\012\015\012Sarah\015

Lens error I have an ixus 230 HS - I turned it on the other day & I must have bumped the lens or something, as it shut down. The lens stayed out though & wont close, when i turn it on it starts beeping at me & "Lens error, Will shut down automatically. Restart camera" comes up on the screen, it then shuts down again. I have removed the battery & the memory card, but to no avail.

Photosmart r727 camera wont turn on. It begins to power on, then the lens wont open and it'll shut down. If I can manage to get it to stay on, the lens wont focus. I got it just 3 months ago and have barely used it. I charged it one day, and then when I went to start it was the first time this began to happen.
