Olympus 3010 Card Access Lamp is ORANGE and lens extended

Hey there,

I have been having a few problems with my Olympus 3010 camera (about 2 months old), and i thought i would write a quick note describing what is happening, and was wondering if it would be worth be sending it for repair, or whether i should just go out and buy a brand new camera.

Here i will try my best to explain what is happening:

I charged the battery, and placed it in the camera. I then pushed the ON button. The lens comes out, but then it makes 2 weird buzzing noises. ( I thought the lens may have been stuck but they seem to be even ?)

The Card Access Lamp is ORANGE and the screen remains BLACK.

I then can do nothing with the camera, it seems powerless (except for the orange light)...It doesn't even do anything when i push the ON/OFF button.

(So the camera is not usuable at all..cannot take or view photos.)

When i connect the camera to the computer, then lens goes back in, the menu comes up on the screen (PC/PRINT mode), the Card Access lamp is green and works per normal..

Any suggestions what could be wrong with it ? And whether it is a camera or physical malfunction ?

Any help would be appreciated...

I really do love this camera.

Thanks heaps

Olympus stylus 1 just froze with lens extended. I took battery and card out for 2 hrs. and still no power.


Try this, set the dial to P, then open the battery door and then press the Menu button and OK button together for about 5 seconds. If you see something in the screen like Olympus? Then press the Menu and OK button together again for another 5 seconds, this is a hard reset and hope it fixes your problem?

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera...


Sounds like a gear has broken or slipped in the lens mechanism. Depending on the camera, it will probably be cheaper to replace the whole camera.

The card access lamp on the olympus stylus 7010 blinks and then the camera powers off. What might the problem be?


Does it work in picture review mode? If so try turning the camera off and pushing the lens assembly in towards the body of the camera, otherwise, is the battery charged? Does anything come up on the screen?

I dropped my olympus 540 zoom camera and lens cover is jammed


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor in the lens assembly of the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $73 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.
