When you press the power on button the camera lens starts to move out stops goes in then out again stops the screen does not illuminate at all.IF you then press the power button the lens tries to retract slightly but then stops and again nothing else happens. battery is fully charged. if you press the replay button screen and camera behaves as normal and you can view the pictures taken lens usually retracts all the way to its docked position again if it was nearly all the way out.

Batteries are being drained. We barely use our camera and the batteries are being drained after only a few photos being taken. Camera is rarely used, maybe twice a day. At the most 5 pictures per day. Is there anyone else having this problem? We have used rechargable batteries and regular Duracell batteries. Life is drained after about 10 minutes an camera shuts off

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.


Hello ... Digital Cameras

Lens Error My cameras battery was low but I kept taking pictures until the camera shut off by itself. The lens didn't retract all the way and now when I try to turn my camera on it makes a clicking noise like the lens wants to move but it doesn't and on the back screen it states a lens error. I am not sure how to resolve this problem I have charged the battery and taken it out. I unfortunately do not have the manual on me.

I have a Nikon S710. The camera appears to lock up and the only way to reset is to remove the battery. When the battery is reinserted the lens retracts. There does not seem to be a reason for the lockup. Has anyone else reported the error?

Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

Lens stuck... Recently while taking photos with my camera, I went to power it off when I was finished. It would not power off, and the lens is stuck...it will not retract. I changed batteries and that did not help. Should I take it somewhere for repair, or has this happened to anyone else?

My Pentax Optio 430RS seems incapable of taking more than one photo before it freezes. Powering off retracts the lens, but then it comes out again immediately, but I'm unable to take a picture. Removing the battery and then putting it or another fully-charged one allows a picture to be taken, but then back to the beginning again.

Casio exilim ex-z850, won't power up to take photo's, but does play back ok. Occasionally it will power up, take a couple of photo's, then the lens retracts and it will not take photo's again. Have tried removing the battery and resetting, it is when that action is taken that it will sometimes fire up for a couple of shots.
