Olympus C770 won't switch off

Hi,

I've got an issue with my Olympus C770 where it will not turn off. I have to remove the battery to power it down. This means that the lens will not retract.

Once I put the battery back in (with the switch in the off position) the camera stays off. On switching it to the camera or video modes it will start up but not on the play position.

To me this seems like a software logic issue. Is there any way I can do a full reset or firm ware re load on this camera??

Thanks

Terry

SOURCE: the lens won't retract

If the lens is stuck out extended you may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair process and pricing. If the battery is fully charged and the lens still stays extended then this is a clear repair issue as something in the lens assembly has failed. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

SOURCE: Our olympus stylus verve dropped and the lens won't retract.

The problem you are describing is a problem with the lens assembly in the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: lens will not retract. orange and green lights come on, but preview screen remains dark and lens will not retract when I trun it off.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My textbook 7p won't turn on


This tablet does t reset with the power button unlike other Android devices. When you hold down the on/off switch, it only drains the battery. If you see the color indicator still charging, allow a full charge.Then, only stay put and pulse the button for a moment quick and let it rest few seconds to try again and again. Only when u see a light coming out of the screen, and I recommend you do this with the power cord on, you hold the power switch down until the rebooting is iniciated. Let go til it is finish and see where the problem is. More likely, like mine, the Settings stop working and needs tune up for the CPU. Never leave an application running when closing your system. With or without internet connection.

My olympus vg-130 won't turn on or charge


Try this, it worked for me:-
Obtain a desktop style charger for the LI 70B battery and charge it separately from the camera. I got a charger at very low cost on eBay. I THINK that the original camera plus original charger won't cope with deeply discharged batteries. I also suggest making sure that the Auto-Power-Down is also switched ON in future. Good Luck.

Hi, I've had my Acer aspire laptop for a few years now, but I haven't used it for over a year (Because I got a desktop). So when I've come to turn it on today, It won't work. The screen...


Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.

Hope this helps

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

Make sure that the batteries are good. If it does not work with known good batteries then you certainly have an issue with the camera electronics. Test to see if the on/off switch is any good.

Olympus C 770 Video Recording


the C770 Ultra Zoom has the ability to use cards larger than 512MB and Type M cards but only for still photos. I tried to use a 1GB card and Type M cards with the same problem "Picture Error". Large videos (over 30 seconds or so) or videos utilizing zoom inevitably caused extremely long time to write the file to the card or failed in the process. The camera is only rated for up to 512MB card from the factory. leicks@cox.net if you have other questions...hope this helps
