Question about Olympus Stylus 740 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped camera when kens was out

I dropped the Stylus 740 when the lens was out. Now the lens is pushed in and doesn't come out after it hit the ground. Something definitely is broken inside and I can hear the motor working, but I don't know if it will cost more to fix whatever is broken than what the camera is worth. It was in great shape and almost new before this incident. What do I do?

Hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. 
thank u rate me!!!

Camera was probably dropped. Motorized autofocus lens was probably damaged when dropped. It doesn't get more of a big deal than this. Depending on age of camera, it may be a ''wipe-out.''

Ps... I'm saying ''probably'' dropped because I didn't see it happen, but this is precisely what happens when they are dropped. It doesn't take much of a ''jolt'' to do the damage, and there is usually never any external damage.

Is it worth a repair what value


First try the procedures in this tip.

If that doesn't do it then, given the age of the camera, I'd say it's time to replace the camera instead of repairing it. Repairing it is certainly going to cost more than it's worth.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Don't want to get your hopes up too high, but here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Dropped Camera - Lens won't close


Generally speaking if your camera cost $500 or less, and you can't fix it yourself, it is cheaper to just buy a new one.

Olympus 740 stylus flash not working


It sounds like you need a new battery. When batteries start to fail the flash tends to stop working. You can get a battery at www.needbattery.com
They guarantee thier batteries for a year and they are 1 of the cheapest stores for batteries you can find on or off the net. Hope this helps.
