Question about Olympus Mju Tough 8000 Compact Digital Camera

Open Question

Olympus tough 8000 screen is black. All lights seem to be working.

Hi, my daughter has the camera on holiday in Bali and is having trouble with the screen going on and off. The camera lights and shutter sounds ok, but the screen is black. Any ideas? She charged it over night and changed the card. It did come on for a short while and is now going on and off. It's making it difficult to take photos and know if they are being saved, as the camera also has no view finder!

SOURCE: camera does not take pictures

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.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

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 $98 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.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first, try another freah set but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

SOURCE: I cANNOT OPEN THE LENS OF MY CAMERA. OLYMPUS TOUGH

Apparently some problem in the inside of the camera with the lens assembly or something is disconnected. You can get in touch with the repairs of the Olympus company and see what repairs would cost. I am almost sure that the repair is going to be more than the camera is worth to you.
Many times dirt or dust can cause problems with the lens. Also this can be caused by internal problems which means repairs. In my experience with these small cameras, the lens repairs have been some of the hardest repairs to complete correctly. That is not saying that it cannot be done. If the lens is taken apart or removed, the camera should be re-calculated on a computer with the right software.

Olympus Tough-8000 Flash Charging Warning


It could be the capacitor in the flash is defect, but it also could be your battery (batteries) are to low on voltage. ALthough when that happens the camera should switch of.
There could be all other kinds of defects, like oxidation of some contacts or a broken flat cable in the camera, But my guess is the capacitor does not charge to the correct voltage.
