Question about Olympus D-595 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera wont turn on

D595 bought new 2 years ago, really with very little use, (When I turn on, shows welcome screen while lens are opened... then "battery exaust" appears in display, long beep & turn off). I've tried a wide range of batteries (lithium, alkalines, rechargables) with no result. Local Olympus repairing service (i'm from Argentina) asks me U$S150!!!!! Seems like I throw away my D595 & of course, I'll never try Olympus again? Regards

I have a lens issue (possibly jammed from lens cleaner i used?)

A nice lens brush is what you clean a lens with.
Solvents in the spray you used could have done a couple of bad things.
1. Carried muck into the zoom mechanism.
2. Melted/dissolved part of the zoom mechanism.

Either way, unless you are brave and capable enough to dismantle it, it needs to go back to service for a clean out/re-jig.

Sorry for the news,

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?

Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Cannon G7 need help

Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?

Grainy, Spot Filled Images when using Manual Modes Only

It sounds like the aperture is getting set very high. If the aperture is a high number, the lens opening is very small which lets less light in and would cause a dark image. This would also show any dust that is in or on the lens or image sensor. The dust doesn't usually show on apertures with a larger opening (smaller number). Make sure your aperture is being set to a reasonable number, probably no higher than 8 or so.

I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!

Ihave the same problem. Its annoying. When you turn it on does it make a buzzing noise? Cause that's what mine does. Except I never dropped my camera. It just goes to the Polaroid screen and then turns off. I'm wishing I wouldve bought a different camera :( Sorry I can't help..

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera

maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.

Stuck Lens, Beeping, Auto Turn-Off

The same thing happened to me. It was my wife's camera so I bought her a new one and planned to send the damaged camera in for warranty repair. I took the batteries out and put it back in the box. About 5 months later, just as I was planning to ship it to Canon, I thought I would put batteries back in it and see what happened. It started working and has worked since. Ron
