Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

Camera screen turns blue when turned on

I have an olympus stylus 700 all-weather digital camera. recently while taking it out on a photo shoot, the screen turned blue and a D: 5f 08 5e 02 appeared on the screen. At first I thought the battery was dead so I charged it today, and I was able to import images but everytime I turn it on, the same blue screen with the numbers and letters appears. It also makes a whirring noise and the lense opens and closes. I really don't know what to do. If the 30 day return expires and I still have the receipt, am I still allowed to return it? thanks!

    I have the same problem with these and how will I return this since I am here already in Philippines?

    I need assistance to this matter and I hope that this will arrive to whoever is responsible.

    Thank you so much Olmpus!

D: 5e02 Error display on Olympus Stylus 700

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor inside the lens assembly of the camera. 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 $86 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.

Lens Error on my Photosmart M525

The lens extension mechanism is probably damaged,
or the circuit that drives it.

It could also be caused by poor batteries or bad
battery connection

No sound when making video clips

Yes there is an option to turn the sound off, so you can take up less space on the memory card. Try turning to the video clips on the dial then push the menu button for options!
