Having problems with your Pentax Optio A20 Digital Camera ?

Pentax optio a20 buzzing noise on statup then switches off


Answers :

This sounds like the lens is stuck, and cannot extend outward. The noise you hear is likely the motor trying to extend the lens. I fix all Pentax Optio A10, A20, A30 and A40 for $40 to $100, depending on what the problem is. Please email me at [email protected] for more information, or with more questions. I also buy any of the above models for cash, in ANY condition.

\015\012This problem would require disassembly of the entire camera, down to the lens assembly. This camera is loaded with very small screws, and some of the clips are tricky to unclip and also to re-clip. You can try this on your own, if you are handy, and if you have a set of jeweler's screwdrivers. If this is just a matter of cleaning the lens gears, I can fix this one for $60. If it needs new lens assembly, it would be $100.
Your problem\015\012may be due to a weak/worn out battery or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your battery may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.
