Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My Olympus C3000 fell while I was downloading pictures. The download completed, but the lense was open. When I unplugged it from the computer, it made a loud beeping noise and went out. I charged the battery. The lens will not retract. The viewer is ready for a picture and shows the remaining pic count, etc., but goes out almost immediately. The download mode simply shows "No Pictures".

SOURCE: The lens retracts and the camera powers off after turning it on

Hey bls_bls,
You could try cleaning the battery contacts, and if that doesn't work you could try a new battery. If your camera still doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it to an authorized service center. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: camera fell down and the lense is not retracting

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try an easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them) while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode selector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

SOURCE: lens will not retract after being

the problem is that the lens is out of alignment. if its not making grinding sounds try manually help the lens to reseat itself. if that doesnt work its not ecomical to repair unit cuz parts and labor are about 120-130 dollars.

SOURCE: Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?

I had all the same problems with the camera that first started with a "memory card error" (the memory card was not the problem). I also only could get a "background" screen on the LCD. I was totally frustrated to the point that I figured I'd have to buy another camera. So, I figure it wouldn't hurt to manhandle the camera. I lightly tried to pushed the lens back in while pressing the power on-off button... The camera lens pushed and jerked (I didn't really fight the push). Thinking I did nothing... I then tried turning it on again....like magic, the camera turned on normally with screen showing ready to take the next picture. And no more "memory card error" either. I don't really know how this worked, or whether it'll work for anyone else, but it did for me.

How to download pictures from my olympus camera to apple computer


Have you tried just connecting the computer to your apple ... via a USB cable ? Usually, after you connect it, iPhoto will open up and provide a view of all the pictures on the digital camera's memory. You can then (on the iPhoto screen) choose to download all the pictures, or select pictures to download.

Olympus Camedia C3000 is stuck in format disk mode


hi all!!! I am so excited to say that i fixed my Olympus 3000 card error. I read around and this is what i found to do.......
plug in the camera to your computer then turn it on. Next flip the
the camera switch betweem P, playback, and asm repeatedly. unplug the cord open the door to the cardreader the screen should say door open. scroll the knob again. Take out the card. put it back in then put it in playback mode. HURRAY!!! it should work. If it does not work try pulling out the card at a different time. It sounds crazy but it really worked without having to download anything at all. OH, and if it works for you please post it because there are so many answers and it is hard to choose one that will work. BE BLESSED!!!

Camera is not getting on - after fell in sea water


As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or unable to be downloaded to computer. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Transferring pictures


Once the camera is attached to the computer via USB cable, windows explorer treats the camera card just like another hard drive. the same goes if the camera card is inserted into a card reader.

Because of this, the camera can be seen as a listed hard drive, (C:), (D:), (E:)..... With windows explorer open view "Computer", listing all existing drives, plug your usb cable into the computer and the camera. When you turn on your camera, AutoPlay begins. Choices range from import pictures to viewing pictures with whatever programs are loaded into you computer.

If not AutoPlay then just use Windows Explorer. The Camera will appear as "Removable Disk (K:) [(K:) is on my computer]. Opening this disk will show subdirectories "DCIM" and 100OLYMP. Your pictures are in 100OLYMP. They can be higlighted and drug into the folder of your choice on your computer.

View with windows media center, etc. or download Google's free PICASA 3. It can also download ("Import") your pictures.

good luck

My C3030 digital Camera won't work w/Windows XP


The C3000(which I have) and C3030 are not directly supported by any version of Windows. You must either use the Camedia software to access the camera(via USB connection) or use an external Smartmedia card reader like a ZIO(I have one, it works great). Camedia 2.0 will work(with XP) but it will not allow you to select more than one picture at a time to download from the camera. I have heard that Camedia 2.5 fixes this problem with XP and it is available for purchase from the Olympus website. I decided to get the card reader instead of the new version of Camedia because I use Photoshop to do my editing. I believe only the latest Oly cameras(like the 3020) have direct support under XP. By this I mean when you connect the camera to the PC it shows up as a new drive letter. Hope this helps.
