Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
I've owned this Olympus C-3000 Zoom digital camera trouble- free for 4 years. I was using it successfully, taking picutres at a party, when at one point I turned it off....a few minutes later I powered it back on and Now the the lens comes out fully then immediately reverses and returns into the camera...thne makes a bunch of clicking noises then repeats the process. I've tried new batteries with no luck. ANy ideas?
The small gears that link the viewfinder and lens may be out of sync. If you are a technical person, you can remove the frontcover, first taking off the topcover, (one screw is hidden under the mode dial). Power up the camera and remove the batteries when the lens is fully extended. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE CAPACITOR! Gently lift the viewfinder and move the viewfinder gear one tooth. It will probably only move one way. Put the batteries back in and try the lens. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the lens or viewfinder.
