Question about Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Issue with the Zoom

When I turn on the Camera, the Zoom keeps moving back and forth. This happens quite frequently but once it starts behaving okay, I can take pictures as long as I want to. The moment I switch it off and on again, the problem repeats. I had got the ON/OFF Switch replaced as the service engineer told me that there was an issue with the Switch. But the problem still persists. Can some one help in letting me know what could be wrong so that I can get it repaired

Still the switch I guess, it is seeking and image to lock onto.

The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it.
Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maens the shutter “blasdes” and stuck by particles/dust/something. So you just continue to shift them like that untill they are free again. Once they are free turn your camera back on and it should perform as normal.

Transmission issue when starting from a stop

If it's not low on ATF, then the forward clutches and/or low one-way clutch are faulty.

Zoom Error

I have had the same problem with my camera. It mostly occurs when my battery is going dead. It will go in and out while trying to turn the camera on and off. It will get stuck open and stuck closed and sometimes half way.

I put new batteries in, and it works like a charm. I can now tell my battery is going dead when it starts to behave that way.

Scan head/carriage not parking in one spot -- keeps moving.

The scanner is having trouble getting its "white reference" usually due to dusty mirrors, but can also be the bulb losing brightness. These are not a easy machine to pull apart if your not used to it.

Good colour laser MFP, depends on volume of prints and remember colour dont come cheap, but dont use refill cartridges, Kyocera and Oki both have good Models
