Question about Olympus Stylus 1010 Digital Camera
When I turn my camera on and it's on auto the lense immediately zooms out and will not retract. There is an orange lightening symbol that continuously flashes.
Also try this, as it is often nothing to do with batteries! IUt is to do with dust and dirt in the lens mechanism. so..dont laugh!
OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 180 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. But if the lens is OK, your problem may be due to a buildup of corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinsert them into the camera. It's not a cure-all. but this cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time. I hope it works for you.
