Question about Olympus D-535 Zoom / C370 Zoom Digital Camera

4 Answers


Greetings, Fixya: I have been using a Camedia C-2100 for years with no trouble, and decided to also buy a C-370. Shortly after purchase, I traveled for a year,carrying the C-370. It NEVER worked, and I cannot now use the warranty - it's too late. Here's teh behavior. Put in new batteries. Turn on. Power lens extends, protector covers open, lens retracts, covers close. Green and orange lights blink a while and it shuts off. I have tried to hold combinations of buttons while turning on, sort of like some hidden code. To no avail. Camera ONLY does this one thing. Extends, retracts, shuts down. Camera has never been dropped or abused and is spotless. I have jeweler's screwdrivers and am technically proficient. Is there something I can check in the interior? A locking mechanism, perhaps? A sensor switch? Anything? Thanks very kindly - am truly angry and frustrated about this purchase this far... Regards - Carl Hurst

    The same thing happens with my camera. But I noted that when I use batteries that are not the expensive types this problem persists. but when new and expensive batteries are used this "Lens going out , lens going in and system shuting down" does not happen. But now it gives a picture error. The camera works fine but when its time to check the pics , there are none in the camera. Strange, no pics, only a message saying " picture error". How do you fix this problem. Is it an internal software problem, which can be eliminated by downloading a software into the camera.??????

I have a FE-340, and when this happens, I do the low tech, old Atari technique of blowing in the battery well to get dust out, as well as making sure the contacts on the battery are clean. It seems to work.

Try to press the button several times or reverse the batterys.
I have A D-535 which does that sometimes

Excellent solution Bike Guy. Take into account that the post was made 6 months ago. If I were you I would focus on recent questions which would probably gain more attention. Best, D.

It is possible that a flexible circuit connector has loosened. This can be checked by removing the covers, DISCHARGING THE CAPACITOR. (The large, black, cylinder beside the lens.) Remove the black Phillips screws holding the LCD and main circuit board and then carefully lifting the circuit and checking the large connector on the back of the main circuit. BE CAREFUL! It is easy to break the flex. The other, most likely cause is the failure of the Photo Interrupter in the lens. The only solution is to replace the lens and reprogram the camera.

How can i update maps on my garmin nuvi 370 that i bought about 3 years back??

You can purchase map updates online from Garmin. Here's the link I use:

You'll need to connect your Garmin to your computer with a USB cable. Then go to the Garmin web site and follow their directions. You can buy a single update, or buy a "lifetime" (of the device) subscription to map updates.

I have a Oly c-2100 ultra zoom... haven't used it i a few years and am now using Vista. Can not find a driver for vista, wondering where I could find one. Olympus doesn't have one out.

If Olympus doesn't have one, there probably isn't one yet. You're stuck digging your older windows machine out, blowin' off the cobwebs, and firing it up. Opps, maybe I have to take that back...just found this web page, see if it works:

When I hook the connection from my camera to the computer to download pictures, nothing happens. What can I do next? I have an Olympus D-370 camera. Thanks, Laura

Have the camera off when connecting the cord...then turn it on. If an icon doesn't appear on your desktop or Windows doesn't offer to open it in a list of programs, open "my computer" may be listed as a removable drive that you can double-click on to open. Or, if you use a memory card, just buy a memory card reader and plug that every time.

New foil required for braun 370 travel shaver

Hello MrandMrsInger! You can purchase a new replacement foil for your Braun 370 at the link I've provided below. Basically, you'll be getting a new cutter block and foil for it, as the foils are no longer provided separately.

Braun, now owned by Gillette, discovered that many folks would buy just the new screen (foil) and it would get torn/damaged by a nick in the cutter block blades, so they packaged these wear items as a set to eliminate those very common problems. I had it happen to mine several years ago, so I know why they made the change.

Anyway, here's the website with your replacement parts:

Just scroll down to the 2nd item shown, I believe, and you'll see your replacement set.

You can also use the part numbers to try to locate another supplier, if you wish, as these are the actual Braun part numbers provided.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
