Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

I have an Olympus Camedia C-760 Ultra Zoom camera. It does everything perfectly except take a picture.When I push the 'shutter' button it gives me a green round light and then a red vertical zig zag arrow symbol beside the green light, and nothing else happens?

It seems that you have internal elctric problem with the shutter actuatur when you press the button it sends to a pulse to the shutter circuit ,but for some reason the shutter is not moving to complete the circuit. my advices is to have the camera repaired this is not a easy fix a qualified tech should repair this for you

    more than likely it would be more cost effective to purchase a new one but that depends on how old the camera is is it still under warrenty? if not the shop rate can be quite expensive not to mention the replacement parts themselves. if i can be of more assitance just click on my user tab on the site. please rate my help to you it would be greatly appreciated. thank you.....Ron M

You can always use a separate card reader instead of the camera for downloading pics. Then, you don't need any special software. typrice_19.jpg

Camedia C-5050 zoom won't take pics


Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

Changing the firmware won't change anything. The micro switch may be stuck in the on postition. If you are familiar with micro circuits, you could get the switch from Olympus or USCamera.com and replace it. Or, send the camera to Olympus or an Olympus authorized shop.
