Question about Olympus Stylus 700 / 700 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera and and now when I switch on the lens is jammed and makes a beeping nose so I cant switch camera on. If I look very carefully there is an almost unnoticeable dent on front of camera. Obviously the lens has been knocked out of alignment. I have phoned one repair co and they say charge is £110 it is obviously not worth paying that I would rather buy new. Does this mean it is only good for the bin.....It is only 5 months old
Try poking a thin object between one of the grooves and wiggle it abit,thats what i done with same prob and it worked..crude but effective

Dropping of camera, especially on the lense side, gives damages to the lense barrels and their pivots. The moving barrels have small pin like projections which move into the grooves cut into the exterior barrel. when dropped either these pins get broken or they come out from the grooves due to the heavy jerk. If disaligned these can be set back to their normal position without much labour charges but if broken the whole assembly is replaced thus causing lot of payment.
