Answers :

Hi\015\012
\015\012it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.

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
