Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 Lens cover open and closes

Olympus 8010 lens cover keep closing and reopening. Image does not come up on display. Work around - if i hold the lens cover when it close, before it reopen, hold it for 1 second, release, the cover reopen and all is fine. I assume some dirt that make the camera computer confused about the fact that the lens cover is opened. Before closing and reopening, the camera makes a bussing sound, like a motor is trying to make something move but it does not move.

    I paid for a technician advice on the internet ($40), did a few test hu suggested and described. He think i would need to touch the motor, maybe replacing. Would be too costly (At least $100). Since i have a work-around, i will wait for january to see if i can have a camera on sale. I dont use the camera much in december. Once the new camera is in, i will try to open the Olympus, just to see. If i fix it, i will post but it is unlikely.

IPICS ON SD CARD DO NOT SHOW ON PLAYBACK OLYMPUS 8010


Many cameras will only display pictures taken by that camera (or at least the same model). Also, if a picture has been edited in any way (opening a pic in a photo editor and saving it without making any changes counts as editing) then the camera will not display it.

The cover over the lens is two pieces. The top one open and closes properly but the bottom one is stuck in the open position leaving the lens unprotected when the camera is off.

Lens


The very delicate and fragile lens mechanism has been skewed by that knock. Try Olympus for a repair price but I suspect you will be buying that new camera once you see the price
