Question about Olympus Camedia Stylus 300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Broken camera I dropped my digital olympus on a tile floor. Since then, when I open the lense cover, the lense doesn't pop out, and the camera doesn't turn on to take pictures. I can still push quick view and can move pictures I've already taken around, but I just am unable to make the camera work since.

Re: broken camera

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. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"

There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

Sony DSC-T200 Dropped on floor - grinding noise


thank you for using fixya.

the zoom and focus assembly is at fault, the grinding noise and shacking is a result of s de-railed plastic gear.

if the camera is still under warranty have it serviced, take note that if the gear is broken and not de-railed, mounts may be broken also.

here is an example of the assembly.


hope this helps.

I droped olympus fe360 camera and the lense will not go back in i can hear it but no action !

The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $68.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

If it works, use it as long as you can.

Fixing snap-shooters is generally not worth it,
since digital cameras evolve rapidly and lose
value even faster with age.

Got a problem with the lense

I had the same problem with mine after it had been dropped on the ground.  I undid the two screws at the bottom which holds the sliding lens cover on and took the cover off.  Check the small black lever inside.  It might be broken.  I replaced the part from an older model and but the cover back on.  I works fine now.  I hope this helps
