Question about Olympus Stylus 700 / 700 Digital Camera
My wife dropped the camera and now the lens will not go all the way back in. The front of the lens moves and it still zooms in and out but will not totally retract
This camera can be very picky when it comes to the front lens cover... It's not a simple mechanism and has many small parts and gears involved. If the lens cover is dislodged it won't work smoothly, and if the case is dented it will not be able to move properly and this can cause lens problems.
If the lens was out when the camera was dropped, then it's possible the lens was damaged and not the lens cover. Sometimes you can tear down the lens, clean it and rebuild it and it will work smoothly again, sometimes this doesn't work and the lens needs to be replaced.
If you're comfortable opening the camera, first check out the lens with the front body section removed so nothing is blocking the lens cover. Does it work properly now? If not, then expect lens damage to be the issue.
