Question about Olympus MJU 300 Digital Camera
When I slide the camera open, the lens will not twist out. In fact, nothing even turns on. With the cover on, the quick view will turn on and show you pictures that are already on the card. It is the actual picture taking that is the problem.
There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
