    Well I actually need to clean the light sensor following rain ingress. which would require the removal of the motorised lens to gain access. Question is how is this done?

    Yeah, You've stated what I feared, so guess I must except the inevitable. My local camera shop said it wasn't worth repairing as in 6mths time the value of the camera would be less then the cost of repair, quoted about £100 plus no guarantee, as other parts may have been damaged by the damp / condensation. Thanks anyway, Nick

Steps:

1. Remove 6 exterior screws and 2 inside battery door.
2. Take off front panel, remove top screw holding back panel; remove back panel.
3. Remove 2 screws(left side top & bottom)from LCD, unplug LCD by flipping hinge up on plastic connector, pull ribbon.
4. Remove 6 screws along outer edge of electronic board and 2 screws behind lens. Unsolder 2 battery connectors near top right side
NOTEL : Do not melt or burn ribbon in between them.
5. Disconnect ribbons at top right and on left edge of board. Flip board over to the left side carefully as it's still connected by 4 thin wires.
6. Remove the screws holding the lens, remove lens.

This cleaning process is very delicate and sensitive. Cleaning lens should be done by authorized or pro camera technician. I suggests you to bring it to the nearest cam service center because they have appropriate tools to open the camera and properly clean it. A single failure or error on cleaning it by yourself might give fatal result to your camera.

If the problem is dust, you can try to blow it away. Else, take the camera to a repair shop, the sensor is very sensitive and can easily be destroyed...
Good luck! :)

Software olympus sp-560uz camerarequired


You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Olympus SP-560UZ "Zoom Error" then shuts down


If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.
