Pentax Optio S5i - Zoom Lens Stuck IN.......!!


\015 Hi, my 4yr old unfortuneatley got hold of my camera and now it will not turn on. When pressing on/off switch green light comes on for about 30 secs there are 3 beeps and then light goes off. It appears that the zoom lens is stuck in..does anyone have any ideas how I might rectify this as I have phoned a repair shop and the quote seemed very high just to look at it without any parts etc. Thanks\015

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

Pentax Optio M 30 After turn-on, the lens comes out, it goes immediately to maximum zoom and then the image becomes blurry. After that, it retracts the lens and turns off. It does the same thing every time.
