Hi

Whats happening is there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears or impact damage.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

Hope this helps,

Thomas

I have been keeping bees for three years now,they have always been very gentle. why have they turned so agressive this year?


You didn't state where you live but your domestic bees may have mated and mixed with the Africanized bees feared some years ago after their escape from a South American breeding lab..

Blurry pictures and beeping noises


It could be the lens is damaged on the inside (Gears and so).
But before you make any conclusion. try to switch the camera to auto mode and make sure the camera is not in the macro mode.
To start, switch of the camera, remove the batty and leave it out several seconds. perhaps you also should charge the battery on an external charger,but if you are sure it is charged, after a few moment reinsert the battery. Then switch the camera to the automatic mode and check if it is not in Macro. (when you see the flower on the screen it is in macro)
If it is still acting the same you made the right conclusion in the question above. (I hope you are wrong but if not, you start looking for another camera)

The hardware inside is defective. You will need to replace the camera either by warranty or buy a new one. Make sure you save your pictures!

My camera keeps turning off with a full battery and makes a beeping noise


There is something obstructing the lens. Camera turns off if it can't extend and retract the lens. Turn it downward, try blowing compressed air around the lens itself, or if all else fails spraying around the base with a light dusting of CRT cleaner (90% isopropal alcohol spray)

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Beeps 3 times


Is it an actual beep, or is it a beeping noise coming from the lens? Does the lens extend? I ask this because this is the noise the lens focus gears make when they are knocked out of alignment, or debris gets in them and jams them.

My olympus turnsoff by itself when in camera mode.


Olympus Tewchnical Support- especially if of recent purchase. If an older camera - then simply buy the next one - repair is not an option.
