Question about Olympus Stylus 410 / ? 410 Digital Camera
I have an olympus stylus and when I slide open the lens barrier the lens is supposed to come out. It stopped doing this and for awhile I could get it to come out by pressing quickview but it would go in and out while taking photos, and now I can't take photos at all but I can view the photos that are already on there. I'm also wondering since it's out of warrany approximately what it may cost to have this sort of problem fixed.
It sounds like the sensor that tells the camera weather the cover is open or closed has failed or come loose. This is a fairly common issue on cameras with the sliding lens covers. Our shop would charge around $50 in labor to fix this issue if it is that sensor. If a part was required it would be somewhere between $20 and $50 depending on what Olympus charges for the part. Cannot speak to what other shops may charge. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I had a problem with my Mu300. The Lens woudl stay out and would not retract. Battery in and out would not solve the problem - it would jst try to extend the lens further then beep a number of times and shut down. Solution - gave it a few whacks with the handle of a screwdriver - and hey presto??? Hoes that for an engineers touch. PS - no liability is accepted for damage resulting from following this precise and difficult procedure.
