Question about Olympus Digital 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

My Olympus Stylus 7030 won't focus and shuts off when I try to zoom.


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

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."

Olympus Stylus 7030- only a month old and the screen has gone black, but the camera still takes pictures and sounds like it is cycling through the pictures. The zoom lens works and the shutters still open,...


Hi There,

You say that everything looks fine except the LCD. If it's true , you will be able to take pictures right? so you try to take pictures and downloaded into the computer.

after this step we know what to do in the future.

let me know the progress.

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
