Question about Olympus Cameras

Hi the shutter on my 725sw olympus does not shut and therefore the camera won't turn on. Its 18 months old and has been fine until now. It hasn't been dropped or done anything unusual. I can still see all the old photos with the review button Thanks Shane

New Canon EFS 18-135mm IS lens failed to auto focus on EOS Rebel XTI and shutter won't release to take photo. Lens over a few months has worked without a problem. What is the problem?


Make sure both the lens and the camera are switched to af (auto focus). If that doesn't work remove the lens and replace it to make sure it is mounted properly. You can also check the camera with a different lens to make sure it isn't a problem with the settings on the camera. If all of that fails take it to a camera or electronics store that does service work to make sure it hasn't been damaged.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

Where do I adjust the aperture on my Olympus 725Sw?


I've gone through the manual, and i don't think you can. Many simple point and shoot cameras have just one fixed aperture. In the manual, the only thing i found was on page "10. P (Program auto) The camera automatically sets the optimum aperture value and shutter speed for the brightness of the subject."

This camera is somewhere between fifteen and thirty years old. It is highly unlikely that spares would be available, and it would be extremely expensive to have it repaired in any case, most artificers familiar with the internal layout having probably retired years ago. Maybe the camera should be retired too ?

Camera stopped operating


Well I know what the review says about underwater to five meters http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Olympus-Mju-725SW

but I would take it with a pinch of salt frankly.
You could get onto Olympus and tell them you know- 'You said I could take it under water - now it wont work' - They may replace it
