Question about Olympus Camedia Stylus 300 Digital Camera

Open Question

Olympus Stylus 300 just flashes and beeps, won't extend lens.

I'm having a problem with my Olympus Stylus 300; I've had it for quite some time now but only got a good 2 years out of it before it stopped working altogether. When I slide open the cover the lens doesn't come out and the little green and orange lights by the viewfinder flash and I can hear a beeping noise, but I can't see anything in the LCD screen. I've tried the bit about changing the battery and taking it out for sometime. At least a reasoning for the problem would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi Bonnie, don't know what problems you are having as you havent specified, but i do know that if you use a memory card higher than 512mb, it will appear as though it is not working! 512mb xd card is the highest you can use for this camera, you can also use a fuji memory card, hope this helps! Check the memory card! :)

The lens won't retract


If the lens is stuck out extended you may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair process and pricing. If the battery is fully charged and the lens still stays extended then this is a clear repair issue as something in the lens assembly has failed. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Shutter v soft


Are you talking about the sliding door that powers on the camera and covers the lens?
There is a metal plate with two screws on the bottom of the sliding door that holds the door to the camera, try tightening the screws and see if that helps. Or else see if the door is slightly bent out of shape, and try to bend it back if you can.
This is a common problem on the Stylus-300 camera, you can buy a replacement door from eBay -

Weatherproof


The Olympus Stylus 300/400 Digital is the first metal-bodied digital camera in the world to feature protection equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX4. The camera will not be damaged by water splashed from any direction. The camera can be used outside in adverse weather conditions. If you are taking pictures when the camera is exposed to rain or snow, make sure that the optical components (lens, viewfinder, flash) are not covered with water. Water droplets on the lens may affect image quality. The Stylus 300/400 Digital is designed to operate at ambient temperature 32°-104°F and relative humidity 30-90%. Please note that the camera is weatherproof, not waterproof, and can not be immersed in water. Olympus will not assume any responsibility for any camera damage caused by water getting inside as a result of misuse by the user.
