Having problems with your Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera ?

Lens error on my camera

\015 I have a Pentax optio 60 digital camera. When I went to turn it on its says lens error and wont open. What can I do? I have never dropped it and it is always in a case when not being used.\015

Answers :

In most cases this isn't a mechanical problem, it's the component board \012that runs the auto-focus. This is a common issue, the only way to completely resolve it however is to have it repaired by the manufacturer.

As this was a common issue, many users have stated their camera was replaced even after the 1 year warranty had expired...you may want to check with the manufacturer to see if this is the case with yours as well.
