Most likely some of the gears are offline or collapsed. when that happens it gets difficult to turn. you could send it to mamiya for an estimate or to mackcam.com

How do you insert a sim card


You can't insert a SIM card into a manual focus lens. If you want to insert a card into some other device, could you specify the make and model of the device?

Hi,

You mean that the lens are getting stuck right??
If so then follow the below steps for fixing your lens problem:

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people have reported some success with it.

Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on the kitchen table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum cleaner.

Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. Take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. Many people have also reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include pulling, pushing, rotating or twisting on the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the lens barrel side that has the largest gap. While doing these, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

Goodluck...

Focusing a mamiya k/l lens.how do i use the floating element ring? thank's


Step A. Set the floating element ring to its' infinity position (if you are using extension tubes, this will vary and you must set according to the tubes).
Step B. Focus the camera on your subject.
Step C. Look at the bellows scale on the camera body (it will generally range from 0-40) Important: Don't read the scale akin to the lens you are using. This will make perfect sense, when you examine the bellows. Mentally record this number.
Step D. Adjust the floating element ring to the recorded number.
Step E. Leave the ring on this new setting and re-focus the camera on your subject.
Step F. Make sure the dark slide is removed and capture your photograph. :)
- That's it mate. Not so foreboding, when you

I cannot focus one of the lenses (14-45mm) for my Olympus E500 camera, the other lens focuses fine so the problem is not with the camera.


There is nothing you can do to fix this, the lens must be sent to an Olympus service centre for repair.

Repairs are normally done on a fixed-fee basis unless the lens is still under the manufacturer's warranty, so if you visit the Olympus website for your country you can check out the fee and determine whether you're better off buying a good used lens (still a gamble, but typically £45-£60) or a brand new one. Given that you have the kit 14-45mm you might decide that the repair costs are better invested towards the far better but far more expensive 14-54mm which is a vastly better lens in terms of optical and build quality, but most casual users won't notice any difference except for the extra weight.
