Question about Cameras
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.
Mine has same problem -- Dont buy a new battery , I tried that but it still does the same thing--- Sorry I know how you feel -- very frustrated I think!
