Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera
Was getting a little iffy about powering on & then failed completely. Recharged set of batteries tested in a second 5050 work OK. Contacts in camera spotless and batteries making good contact as far as I can see. So I suspect the switch itself has failed: is the mode dial assembly dismantle-able so that the power switch can be fixed? Is it likely to be fixable? I know how to remove the mode dial assembly. I have dismantled & repaired other cameras before & have suitable tools for the job so, please, no suggestions about taking it to an "authorised repairer" (totally uneconomic!).
The mode dial is replaceable, it is usually about 50 buck on Ebay and its pretty easy to replace. I actually had to repair mine with a small screw as the top popped off. Just remove the back and you can see the mode dial and its ribbon cable. look up c5050 capacitor and youll find a few sites that show you which screws to remove to get the back off (its 7 I believe, 2 under the flash hot shoe, two on the bottom, one on the USB side and 2 under the memory door)

Very secretive these camera folk about their stuff I guess you will simply have to fumble and hope what you find is repairable with what you have because parts are yet another issue.
