Question about Olympus Stylus Zoom 80 Wide DLX 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't work, has an E on the display

What does the E mean on the display, I don't have the manual for it. My wife opened the film door by accident, so the film is probably no good. But after closing it we could not take any pictures with it. It only went through about 6 frames and then it rewound all the way.

If E blinks in the exposure counter, the film is improperly loaded. Reload the film.

Her is the link to the Olympus website where you can download the instruction manual

You don't need to open the camera to change the film. The battery door is on the other end. You open the door by inserting the protrusion on the plastic end piece of the strap into the slot of the battery door. It takes a small 3 volt battery.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

Try putting a little pressure on the back door right of the finder. If the counter worked, then when film is finished and removed with the back door open you can see a metal lever in the slot that the door fits into. It should be straight vertical if not straighten with a needle or pin to vertical.. No parts are avail. for this model.

Can't take pictures.


Guest,

pentax codes are in repair manuals, not instruction manuals. H3 indicates shutter failure. this means anything from the flex circuit on the zoom barrel ( inside ) to the shutter itself. camera needs repaired.

Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.
