Olympus SP-350 will not power on anymore. Battery is fully charged. There is a light buzzing sound coming from the battery slot when you push the power button. Camer was never dropped nor wet. I took a...


not sure - but seems like you have a power on issue, so try to check into the battery bay and see if there's any dirty stuff or leak from battery or just make sure the contact is clear.

Using a meter to double check to know that the batteries are BOTH charged is advised. The Buzzing noise seem to indicate the motor is having problem extending the lens or the motor's gear is stripping hence making the noise?

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

LCD panel cracked


The price to have the LCD replaced would probably cost 75% of a new one. If you can do without the LCD and it downloads the pictures to your PC, at least you've got something.
That camera has a viewfinder, so you can still take pictures, right.
Sorry about the bad news.

Problem with camera OLYMPUS SP 500 UZ


This sounds like a CCD issue in the camera. The CCD is the part in the camera that captures the image (the "digital film") if you will and converts it to a format the camera can read.

When they go bad a lot of times you will see weird colorations and/or stripes, very similar to what you are describing.
You can try eBay for a place to buy, or maybe check the manufacturer.

Dropped the camera and now...


Sounds like the chassis under the shutter button has somehow distanced itself from the shutter release button, maybe bent away from the button? Its s stretch but that maybe the problem. The button is designed to have 2 contacts in it, the autofocus switch and the shutter release depending on how much you press it, like most cameras
