Having problems with your Pentax Optio S6 Digital Camera ?

Pentax Optio S6 re-occuring problem

\015 I have a Pentax Optio S6 Digital Camera that receives a large amount of use. I take good care of it and its never been dropped, left in extreme heat, got wet etc etc... But i seem to be getting this same problem rather often.

Answers :

I had exactly the same problem just this week. After reading every problem posted that had to do with the lense I figured that the lense had somehow worked it's way of the "track or gear" that moves it in and out. I don't recommend this solution unless you figure that the cost of having it repaired proffesionally would be more than to replace the camera (I am a trial and error type of repair person). On my camera, also an S6, when the lense came forward and began to retract, I GENTLY held the lense in place for just a second. I repeated this probably four or five times until it "worked itself" back into the proper position. It does make the clicking noise while doing this which made me a bit nervous but it worked. The camera actually even seems to be focusing better which leads me to believe that possibly it hadn't been quite right for a while. AGAIN... you have to decide if the cost of proffessional repair is worth it to you. I am not a pro but this worked GREAT for me. Hope it helps.
\015\012Here is the information on the lens system for the Pentax...
\015\012The Sliding Lens system is a proprietary PENTAX lens system that offsets the central lens groups from the optical lens axis and retracts the lens in two steps in the cylinder for minimized overall body depth.
\015\012I think from what you have stated, the lens system is off track, hense the noise and the blurry image...
\015\012Hope this is helpful...

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.

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
