Focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears. That's the weak spot for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center or any other camera service center or me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com

My problem is exactly the same as the original poster's.


It may be that there is a setting in the camera that has been changed to make the camera only operate from the computer. I suggest looking around the menu in the camera when it is attached to your computer.

Same exact thing......My mom thinks it needs a new battery.


Hi!
It sounds like your camera lens focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears - that's the weak spot of these lens. If you can't open the lens and check your lens focus gears yourself, you should contact your local Olympus service center or other camera service center. You can contact me too at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can give you a good price.

Hope this helps!

My kodak easy share M1063 turns on then shuts right off how do i


I had the same exact problem. When the camera turns on and then lens extends, hold the lens out while the camera shuts off. Then sort of move it around a bit. I did this and when I turned it on, it was fixed. I guess something was jammed in the lens.

Turns off right away


hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model.....
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

error code e18 means that the focus motor gears a jammed, dirt or grain of sand in them. you can try to fix it by gently banging the camera on somthing soft, their are also instructions on web on how to disasemble and fix this fault. BUT unless you have some skills, the right tools and conditions i would not attempt it. leave it to the experts

Lens stuck


If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......
