Iv just replaced my 3rd olympus as the lense component has got stuck once again. i am now on my gap year and have missed about 3months worth of photos because of this. do u know how i can get the camra lense to work properly and open,close and focus wen swiched on???? plez help its stressing me out
This could be your problem. I haven't worked on your specific model camera however the idea and construction has been basically the same in all the cameras that I've opened and fixed. Inside the lens assembly, right behind the front optic there are two magnets that are opposite each other. These magnets are there to close the lens cover when it detracts. A common problem with these small compact cameras are that they are dropped or subject to some kind of impact and the magnets come loose (there actually put in with a cheap little snap to save money) and the lens can not retract. The camera stops functioning because the lens can't find it home position, thus your left with a very expensive paper weight. So what's the solution? Well, if your handy you could get yourself a pt. 0 philips and open the camera. Be careful of the capacitor (it looks like a battery), it can remain charged for several months and depending on the condition could hurt you bad. Once the cover is removed you can remove the lens assembly and further disassemble it. Make sure that you mark with a pen the position of the lens because you will have to reassemble it exactly or the camera won't focus. once you pull the CCD pickup from the back of the lens you will see the out of place magnet. Put the magnet back, add a very small amount of Crazy Glue to it, and reassemble in reverse order. Your camera should be as good as new. Good luck!
