[langtitle=it]optio m20 problema obbiettivo[/langtitle]

ho una pentax optio m20 da 4-5 anni e ha sempre funzionato benissimo.
dalla settimana scorsa non si accende piu o meglio la accendo ,si apre il diaframma l obbiettivo si allunga si sente un beeeep l' obbiettivo fa avanti e indietro x due volte e si richiude e la macchina si spegne.
che puo essere?
costera' molto aggiustarla o direttamente compro un altra compatta?

I hate to say this but is would be cheaper to just buy a new camera. The cost of fixing it would be more the cost of a new one. Unlike a more expensive D-slr, once a inexpensive point and shoot only has a limited life span before something goes wrong with it. You can try contacting your Pentax office to get a price on repairing it but I think the price will not be worth it.

Did you switch the memory card just in case the error of the "startup" is from a bad card?

Common as well is if dirt is lodged in the lens it can keep the lens from fully opening as a correct amount of time and cause the camera to shutdown. If it is stored in less that clean places like your pocket, then over time junk from your pocket will clog.

A worst case is the camera opening in your pocket. This will lead to drive motor problems and eventually a lens deploy error.
