Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
No picure on viewing screen. Camera is on with lens extended and new batteries.
It look like the gear which is moved by the motor, the one which adjusts the focus and zoom has been stuck, you will not find any troubleshooting steps in any manual, its an un common issue. all i can suggest you is few steps
1. take the batteries out
2 take the memory card out too.
3. just tap the camera on the sides for few times gently without batteries and try to pull and push very lightly the lense it might get set on the block of the gear on which it moves.
4. now simply insert the batteries and tap a bit and try to turn on and off see if the lense gets in properly in case its not doing anything, then you have to either get a service tecnician or if your are comfortable then try using a precision screwdriver and try to loosen the unit and check the gear that should take care.
