Having problems with your Pentax Optio S Digital Camera ?

Pentax Optio S - lens cover rings popped off

\015 Dropped the camera and the outer two rings (one with writting & one all black) that cover the lens mechanics popped off. No damage to camera operations; works fine.\015\012Are these supposed to rotate and cover the front element of the lens when it's turned off? It appears that there is some slight movement of some small pieces on the exposed surface when turning power on/off.\015\012Have snapped them back on, but they do not move when powered off. Worried about hurting the lens operation mechanics if the rings are imporpperly seated. \015\012Thoughts, opinions, suggestions?\015\012\015

Hi,
\015\012I'd be most happy to share with you how I solved my problem with the Pentax Optio S. It took a bit of clever 'problem-solving' thought and inspection. After suddying the design of each piece and the working components of the exposed lens area, I was able to identify which sections worked together appropriately.
\015\012And, I think it appropriate at this time that I ask you to purchase one of my plans in order to receive the full benefit of what I learned from my skillful thinking and examination, and thereby successfully repaired my camera.
\015\012I look forward to hearing from you.

Optio M20 Camera: Press on/off button to power up camera, the camera opens the lens cover, turns on a red led inside the lens, cycles the lens out and back in,then makes about 5 little popping noises. The back screen shows Pentax Optio screen for a second, then then the screen displays the word Auto Picture in the center of the screen and Green Mode at the bottom and at the same time it cycles the lens out and in.

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.

I have a nikkor 18-200 lens. the outermost ring screws into the lens glass ring with a few very tiny screws. the screws loosened and the cap fell off. nothing is broken (though auto focus no longer works with this off) but there is a solid plastic ring that covers the screw heads and i cannot see a way to access the screw heads to screw them back into the lens. it would be a simple procedure if i could access them. any ideas?

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

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 !!
