Having problems with your Pentax Optio A30 Digital Camera ?

Pentax Optio A10 Camera Lens won't retract - Pentax Optio A30 Digital Camera


Answers :

It sounds like you may have a bad lens assembly. If it is sticking open or closed, it will usually make a buzzing noise. If it fails to open or close all the way, it will turn itself back off. This is what it sounds like you are saying. I can fix this for $40, or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona. I don't know what they charge for a lens assembly, but the minimum charge for this camera seems to be about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

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. At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working.

Camera problem Hi. I have a Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera. When I hit the on/off button, the camera turns on, the lens zooms out for a second and then back in, then it shows the "Pentax Optio M" load screen, then it shows "Auto Picture" in the center and a green dot in the bottom left with the words "EV Compensation" next to the dot.

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.
