Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera
After taking off the lens cap, setting to P etc and turning the main switch to "On" the lens repeatedly tracks in and out - sometimes it remains extended and then the camera functions - more usually I have to switch it off and with hope start again. I've tried setting the camera to the other picture taking modes - again the same. Tried with other cards, ditto. And now it has a new trick - I put it to the green > picture display position and all it does is the lens tries to repeatedly come out a tiny bit and then immediately retract. Help! - when it worked it was such a lovely camera and I really got attached to it.
I had the same issue and thought me Ebay camera was trash. I put the batteries back on the charger over night and it worked properly in the morning. Looked to be a low power issue, but my lens did look like it was all cocked, grinding and stalling. perhaps the camera reset itself with no batteries in it for a few hours> I was very relieved.
