Question about Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zoom Control The zoom control has stopped working. In the Summer on holiday, I noticed that the zoom control was working only intermittently. It seemed to be making poor contact and I found that flicking it sometimes helped. Now it has ceased to work at all. Is there any way of cleaning the contacts or having a service carried out?

The optical zoom has stopped working on my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. It was working fine, but now moving the zoom control clock/anticlockwise does not move the lens at all. I've tried the...


The issue lies with the lens assembly electronics and/or motor. If possible try another lens. If that one works it is the lens. If it doesn't, it might be the switch control for the zoom action.

Sticky zoom control


Put some WD-40 on a cotton swab, squeeze the tip and let it drizzle down into the zoom switch.

HF10 zoom goes without any explicit request


My HF10 started to mysteriously autozoom as well, and I had made no setup changes. I don't have exactly the same symptoms as you describe except that it would begin to zoom when I didn't want it to. I noticed the [I.AF] (Instant AutoFocus) icon, so I went into the menu (Camera Setup - AF Mode) and turned the "Instant AF" to "Normal AF". After that, the autozoom seemed to have stopped. I set it back to "Instant AF" and it did not autozoom again. I wouldn't know how to turn the autozoom back on again even if I wanted to, but thankfully it appears to be gone now. Hopefully it will stay in manual zoom mode. Hope that helps.

Auto zooming on power up, intermittent problem


Possibly a intermittent connection in the control buttons or the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector from the controls to the main PCB.
Take it in for servicing, they will do a trial by substitution (swap out control) and lubricate the connector.
There isn't really anything you can do to fix with this sort of problem.

Cheers.
