Question about Olympus Camedia D-520 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Weird problem. Camedia d-520 doesn't turn on. Blinks and Beeps.

Hi ! I have this nice D-520 which was working fine until one day i left it lying on the shelf for over a month with a non-standard ebay kinda NiMh battery in it. When i picked it up again , predictably the batteries were dead, so i replaced them with my newly charged energizer batteries and ...nothing...it used to make a slight whirring sound but this time it didn't. And then it started blinking and beeping. Now usually when i retract the lens cover (with fresh batteries in it) it just starts beeping and blinking the two lights, orange and green, near the view finder. However, sometimes...and i am not certain what makes it work.... a combination of frustrated shakes, leaving it without batteries for 24 hours..fresh charged batteries...carefully opening the lens cover ....kissing it ..what i don't know ...but sometimes, it does turn on. When it does it can take about 8-10 continuous pics with flash before turning off and starting the whole blink and beep routine all over again. so, does anybody have any idea what is wrong ? and what i can do ?

I'm having the same problem with mine. Happens on rechargeables or brand new standard batteries as well. Very frustrating. I can't take more than 2 videos in a row without the dreaded orange/green lights flashing (low battery warning). Leaving it for 10-20 minutes and it works again, with the battery charge showing full.

Camera turns on beeps turns off


Hi there. Turn on. Before it beeps, take the battery's out. This may take some practice. Now us a Qtip almost soaked in rubbing alcohol and clean the outside edges of the lenses. Put battery's back in and cycle the camera on and off. I hope this works for you. It worked for me.
Thanks
Paul

Olympus Camedia C5050 Zoom


The unusual beeps usually occur when the lens cannot be extended or retracted, often due to dirt in the gearing or the lens cap being left on.
Try using canned air to blow around the outside of the extension cylinder, and, putting a fresh set of batteries in the camera (it probably got stuck on since it couldn't fully retract the lens and didn't complete the shutdown).
If that doesn't work, try taking it to a camera store with repair technicians and having them take apart and clean the lens extension/retraction mechanism.

hi maybe your connections are poor try changing them and see if it works out but it sounds like a solders problem: they are dry or broken try and see if you give it a small tap on the side the picture shakes\dissapears\working good at last if soo then its that i guess that you dont have any electric background soo you will need to take it to a tech gay good luck
