Question about Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom Digital Camera
About 50% of the time, the lens will not extend when the lens cover is opened. After several tries - it works fine - then suddenly won't work at all. Just very tempromental!
SOURCE: Lens not Extending
this problem is caused because that the lens servo can`t move the unit of lens. this menssage mean that the sistem don't go out the lens. You have to sincronise the mechanism of the lens, carefully disarm the unit and review that the gears are ok.

SOURCE: no startup on lens cover opening
All the possible explanations you offer are appropriate. It is either a problem with the sensor that determines if the slide cover is open, or a problem with the lens preventing it from extending. If you do not get errors when you open the cover I would expect it to be the side cover sensor. Try manipulating the cover by gently twisting it and sliding it back and forth. Open and close it several times - if the switch is dirty or just out of alignment you may get some sign of life when you do this. If nothing at all happens it is probably completely failed and would require repair or replacement. Before you give up completely check online for repair sources, some cost much less then others. Google it. :) David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: Lens does not always extend
Possibly dirt ingress. or dirty battery contacts.
Remove battery and clean the internal contacts in the battery chamber
An eraser on the end of a pencil is good for this
If it is damage that is causing the problem - there in nothing for you to do.
These things dont get repaired.
If still under warranty try that route.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

You are probably suffering from the most common fault with the MJU 300/400 range of cameras. If you can still see pictures from your memory card when you use the quick view button, then this is a good indication that the software of the camera is operating perfectly. However the camera switches to photo capture mode when the lens cover is moved back. It is a common fault with these cameras that the black plastic armature operated by the sliding action becomes loosened from the case resulting initially in the cover becoming sloppy and causing the lens to keep closing erratically. More importantly the plastic armature which is positioned to operate a tiny Surface Mounted switch can cause the fragile plastic 'nib' to break off. It is this switch that in effect turns the camera on. If this is what has happened, it is the most common fault, there is very little that can be done as a DIY repair unless you have access to speciallised SMD soldering equipment, experience in this type of repair and most importantly a source of supply for the SMD switch. I have as yet been unable to identify the type or supplier myself. The alternative is to take the camera to an authorised repair shop. This is the expensive route but you might be able to keep the costs down by making it obvious that you know what the fault is etc.
