Question about Olympus Cameras

2 Answers

I dropped an Olympus 1010 and now only about 1/3 of the subject is visible in the top of the LCD. Naturally it does not focus very well also. What is wrong and what can I do to repair it.

    The camera is about a year old. Resetting did not change anything.
    Thanks for the suggestions though.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please try and reset the camera by following the procedure given in the manual. If you don't have the manual you can view/download the manual from here--

Olympus 1010 Instructions Manual

And if this doesn't work after the reset then it might have happenned due to a hardware component. Please tell me how old is your olympus?

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Are you able to view the pictures you have previously take? Also are you able to see the menu and controls on the screen? That will help verify it is a problem with the LCD screen or not?

Olympus 1010 lens stuck out. Won't shoot either


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. 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 $87.85 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.

Cannot focus on a particular subject


If the camera is having a difficult time auto-focusing, you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance from you and then move the camera back to the intended subject and take the picture without losing focus. First, turn the camera on and locate the Autofocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away as the subject the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While holding the shutter button halfway down, aim the camera at the original subject and press the shutter button all the way down.

Focus on a particular subject?


If the camera is having trouble doing an auto focus you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance away from you, and then move the camera back to your original subject and take your picture without losing that focus. First turn the camera on and locate the AutoFocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you as the subject that the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, move the camera back to include the subject you originally wanted in the image, then press the shutter fully. (Please see page 42 in the D-535 Zoom Reference Manual in Section 3, under the heading titled “If Correct Focus Cannot Be Obtained”, for a more detailed explanation.)
