You may want to call the Olympus Customer Service department to ask if they still repair this camera model. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

I have an olympus 35mm camera that no longer advances. I have taken it to a couple of camera repair shops and have been told it cannot be fixed because parts are no longer made for this camera. Are you...


Unfortunately the repair shops are correct, and like many similar models the situation is made worse by the fact that your camera was never designed to be repaired or serviced. It was made to last about six years/100 rolls of film before being replaced. Professional repairers also won't touch your camera as it is quite literally worthless: customers tend to balk at fees which far exceed the cost of replacing the camera and so the repairer risks doing unpaid work with a very high risk of a subsequent unpaid warranty repair if the camera fails again shortly after being fixed..

The good news is that as there are millions of similar cameras lying unused you can replace it free or extremely cheaply. Many charity/thrift shops have boxes full and almost have to give them away, and if you ask on FreeCycle you'll usually get something comparable.

Virtually all of my camera gear has come from FreeCycle. The original mju or mju 2 are far more common than your model and are both excellent, although the same cannot be said for all Olympus compacts. The original fully manual Trip is superb, but the later models of the same name are poor. The XA and XA2 are excellent (especially the XA), but the later XA's aren't much good. If you want to try non Olympus models, then one astonishingly overlooked and underrated model is the Canon SureShot Classic 120. It's really high quality, has the option of spot metering, and the lens is simply incredible. They weren't produced in massive numbers but aren't rare either.

One other benefit of having a broken camera like yours is that you now have nothing to lose at all in trying to dismantle and find the problem yourself. It's unlikely you'll be successful, but you will gain invaluable experience to carry forward to your next repair attempt. You won't find any servicing manuals for the reasons given before, so will just have to use patience and common sense.

I HAVE A C- 315 OLYMPUS 16MB XD-PICTURE CARD,\r\nCAN I GET A CARD THAT WILL HOLD 5O OR MORE PHOTOES


Your camera will accept a type-M xD card up to a maximum 2GB capacity which will hold hundreds of images.

They're widely available from online retailers such as this one for example, but you can find a retailer more suited to you by simply entering "2GB xD" into your browser search box.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of full assistance to you; I'd be grateful if you'd please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Minolta XG-1 Film Camera View Finder has Door Seal Foam stuck in it.


jrbw123,

the top cover must be removed and the flex circuit on top of the prism must also be removed. then remove the prism to access the fresnel lens. the lens is extremely fragile and very difficult to clean.i would try to replace it with a good used one if possible. unless your a intricate instrument repair person i would let a camera repair person do this.

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden


you should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.
