Question about Olympus Camedia C-770 Digital Camera

Camera stuck in playback mode

Whenever I turn the power switch to camera mode or video mode the camera stays on the playback mode. A technician in India diagnosed it as a worn out switch (carbon) that needs to be replaced(back panel) and it would cost me around $80 dollars. I called olympus in US and they are charging $175 fixed cost for any repairs. Does anyone have any other suggestion ? Uday

    hi rafiq,

    thanks for your response. I was wondering if the part is due to wear and tear then shouldnt it last more than two years specially for $500 worth of camera ? I called olympus to see if they would stand by their product and replace the worn out switch. Ofcourse the answer was NOpe. Rgding the part in Asia, it was coming from an olympus repair center and I hope it should be genuine part.
    It justs doesnt seem right for a switch to cost so much and a fix should be so hard to do. Wish there was a way to use a third party solution etc. A new olympus would cost me $200 in the US (without the metal body ofcourse), but this time no olympus for me.

    Uday

Hi Uday, As u described, I think that it is compulsary to replace the whole switching assy. please dont compare the rate, because component quality in US better than in Asia. this is the reason it costs too much. I suggest to go to Olympus shop for genuine repairs. good luck .....

Panasonic DMC-ZS6 when in camera mode lens comes out and I get the message "Please turn camera off and then on again" when I turn off the lens just stays out.


There is an issue with the camera focus circuit in lens. That is why it is ok when you go into playback mode but negative when the lens is involved.

My Cannon SD1000 Powershot is stuck on video and will not switch to photo mode.


Could be related to a stuck shutter which is a common problem with this camera. Check that all physical parts are moving and do an unstuck process to free the shutter if this is the issue. See the link for more details:

My camera quickly turns off after moving the switch to the on position. This happens in the playback mode every time and less in the record mode. I can stop from happening if I hold the switch in the on...


Replacing the power switch will require disassembling the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Pentax Z10 won't turn on.


Press and hold the playback button for 2 seconds. The camera should turn on and be in playback mode. Switch to Camera Mode by opening the from slider cover. Hope that fixes it. See Pentax Z10 Manual Page 34.

Need assistance transferring video to imac


The Panasonic PV-GS12 will transfer video in video record mode and video playback mode using the DV connection (IEEE) Firewire port. PC Mode is restricted to memory card access via USB. If after connecting it in this manner if it does not work try this. With everything connected via firewire and iMovie running. switch the camera to PC mode and the import window should pop up. You may get a comunications error and if you do then switch to playback mode. The import window should stay open and you can control your camera with the iMovie controls.

No playback on camera


Whenever you want to playback your videos, you should be in recording mode.

Press the play mode button and select the video that you want to play and then press the play/ pause button on the bottom part of the menu/ ok button.

Is it a switch or a dial? have you tried new batteries?have you removed them and let the camera sit with the batteries out over night? The button or mode switch could be bad.
