The problem you are describing is a problem with the lens assembly in the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.
Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product. 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. The telephone number to Customer Service is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Olympus all weather 760 errors 5f08 5f0a 5e02 Blue error message lens will not retract makes burring sound help please


The sound your camera is making, is probably the slipping from the gears, grinding them down, because something is blocked. Even when you can't see any blockage. Please don't leave the battery in, to avoid more damage. Contact a certified Olympus repair centre, or visit your dealer with the camera.

LENS OPENING BUT NOT SHUTTING


Hi,

Its seems lens got stuck in the barrel due to external shock caused, Try out following steps-

  • If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move once's or twice then it will stuck again.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.


Else contact Olympus, your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center .

I hope this will solve your problem

Thanks..!!

Camera does not start up until after several


If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Statup problem


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.
