This is probably caused due to a fall or so.. try to technically have a 360 look at the sides of the lens were at one instant u will notice a slight droop.. now u have to carefully push the lens in carefully with **** like motion for which a click noise will be heard... and will go back in...

Zoom is stuck and it wont stay on


Have you tried using a fully charged battery?

also, there could be a dust build up or a sand residue stuck inside the lens that it why its having a hard time coming in or out eventually.

Try to hold your camera, with the lens facing down, from your right hand and while turning it on, hit the camera gently on your left palm. Try this several times.

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

1) Make sure that the batteries are in good condition
2) Check and clean any dirt or corrosion from the battery terminals.

If the power supply voltage suddenly drops during initialization,
or when the lens is trying to extend itself, it could produce this
kind of error.

3) Make sure that the lens extension tubes are not mechanically
jammed.

4) Remove the batteries, turn the unit ON and wait for it to fully
discharge any internal capacitors, then put the batteries back
and try to turn the unit back on. This should fully RESET the
internal CPU.
===

Generally this kind of error means that the camera's internal
computer is trying to activate the lens zooming motors, but
the motors fail to move as expected.

Other causes could be:
a) burned out ZOOM motors
b) burned out motor drive circuitry
c) bad motor positioning sensor
d) defective computer components
e) failed internal firm-ware.

none of these cause are user fixable.

Hope this helps

Zoom Lens doesn't Zoom


Check you haven't accidentally got the camera into some fixed-zoom mode ("Super-Macro" is a favourite for this on Olympus cameras).

Dropped Camera Zoom Problem


Afraid not a novice or even an expert can fix this one. It will have to be a repair of the zoom mechanism. It will almost certainly be costly. Check your Olympus support site to see what your local repair options are.

Olympus C-3000 Zoom telescoping lens problem


The small gears that link the viewfinder and lens may be out of sync. If you are a technical person, you can remove the frontcover, first taking off the topcover, (one screw is hidden under the mode dial). Power up the camera and remove the batteries when the lens is fully extended. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE CAPACITOR! Gently lift the viewfinder and move the viewfinder gear one tooth. It will probably only move one way. Put the batteries back in and try the lens. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the lens or viewfinder.
