Question about Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera
Hi, I'm lloking the Slide track for a camera Olympus C-50, do you know whare I can find it?
The slide guide is part of the plastic chassis not much can be done with the slot, I solved the problem by making a new part...it a "T" shaped bar made from aluminum with two 0-80 threaded holes tapped into it the top of the T replaces the long steel spacer and the vertical part of the T rides in the slot instead of the two bullet nosed screws, it doesn't matter if the slot is broken because the T bar will bridge the broken portion...I have done three of these cameras and they all work fine. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send a drawing of the part. I will be making a kit for this repair in the spring of 2008.

I also had the same problem once when it was under warranty and I got it fixed from authorized service station. However, next time when the problem reoccur, I simply kept the plate aside and used finger to switch on or off using the black switch.

I like jarg1's solution and will email him for additional information. My other thought is to measure the gap in the groove along side the channel with the screw/guide pins (using auto spark plug gapping gage). I will then find a comparable size monofilament fish line to press into the gap, pushing the channel wall back in line. Pending a response from jarg1, if it works, I'll glue the fish line in the groove, although they may prohibit me from opening the camera for other repair. Any thoughts?
