Question about Olympus Stylus Verve / ?-mini Digital Camera

1 Answer

Statup problem On startup my olympus stylus verve sometime gives me an error message of 5E02. The lens comes in and out 2-3 times - sometimes more and the lens is unfocussed on these occasions. It makes an odd whirring noise. it has not been dropped and there is no visible defect as it does take pictures eventually. Any suggestions would be happily received.

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Sorry no one has gotten to your problem sooner.
There is a problem with the lens mechanism. Here is what you can do, either:
A) Whack the camera on the palm of your hand as the lens is extending. OR:
B) As the lens is extending, pull it out and twist it. Don't be afraid of it, but...don't rip it out of it's socket either...LOL. Just give it a pretty good tug/twist.

It may take a couple tries, but that is what will help you. You just have to align the pins right with the track that they ride in. Let me know if you have any questions.

When I turn on the camera, for few seconds it shows the image trough the lense, but inmediately it seems to turn off, and this legend apears on the screen: D5 f 08 5 f 0a 5e02 5 f 085 e02 the battery is...


The error is a lens motor error. The lens is not able to properly move and the camera then gives the error message. Sometimes dirt can be stuck in the lens or it could just be a mechanical problem that needs repairs. If you point the camera lens toward the ceiling while turning it on this could help alleviate the problem. If you cannot do anything to get the camera to stay on you may need to contact Olympus for repairs.

Blue screen with the following codes D: 340a 5f0B 5f0a 5f0B 5e02 How can i fix this?


The error message (D: 5e02) means that your lens is dying / dead. It just happened to mine and I was told that it could be repaired, but it would cost as much as a new camera. I've only had mine 2 years and I've been really careful with it, so I'm a bit annoyed, but I have used it a lot!

You must visit the dealer or Olympus techinican to solve it this ans the other codes.

Good luck.

Camera keeps turning itself off when I turn it on.


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor in the lens assembly. 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 $93 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.

Stylus 700 error D:5f08 5e02


The error message (D: 5f08 5e02) means that your lens is dying / dead. It just happened to mine (on the Mju 700, but it's the same thing) and I was told that it could be repaired, but it would cost as much as a new camera. I've only had mine 2 years and I've been really careful with it, so I'm a bit annoyed, but I have used it a lot!
