hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!
Are you talking about the sliding door that powers on the camera and covers the lens? There is a metal plate with two screws on the bottom of the sliding door that holds the door to the camera, try tightening the screws and see if that helps. Or else see if the door is slightly bent out of shape, and try to bend it back if you can. This is a common problem on the Stylus-300 camera, you can buy a replacement door from eBay -
The part came in three days and it was SO EASY to replace. You just need a tiny Phillip's head scewdriver and about three minutes. Remove the three small screws that attach the faceplate to the camera (one on the bottom, two on the side). The faceplate pops right off and exposes the hinge that holds the battery door in place. Remove the final screw that holds the hinge in place. Reuse the original spring, pop the new door in place and then replace the faceplate.
The cheap, instant way is to tape it down - pvc electrical tape is probably the best for this although it will get sticky after a while.
La fa?on bon march? et imm?diate est d'utilisez du Scotch / bande ?lectrique PVC - le deuxieme est probablement le meilleur pour ceci bien qu'il obtiendra collant un peu plus tard.
if you want to replace the cover then contact Olympus Europe on this link;
si vous voulez meme remplacer la couverture contactez Olympus Europe sur ce lien ;
another way to go would be to find a local dealer or two and ask them if they have any C-740 that has a good card cover but is otherwise unrepairable - you might get lucky.
Une autre possibilite est de trouver des n?gociants local et les demandez s'ils ont un C-740 qu'a une bonne couverture de carte mais qu'est autrement irr?parable - vous pourrait avoir de la bonne chance.
Hope this helps - please ask again if not :)
J'esp?re que ceci vous aide - demandez moi encore si non (mes excuses si vous n'?tes pas wallon)
It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair.
There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate.
