Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: 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 cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

    My Olympus 770 SW lens cover has been stuck for months. There was no visible corrosion, but I wiped the contacts anyway... voila! It works!

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

Have a look at the lens, is there something stuck to it or dirty. If so needs cleaning. I'd try a damp cotton bud. Don't get water in the camera. Use several buds if required. Be Gentle.

Lens cover stuck open. Can't take photos but can review old ones.


I have the same problem. Have you come across a solution? It's definately my lens and not my battery. Where did you go to get the lens looked at and repaired?

Lens stuck


I had an Olympus 725 which I bought in Dec 06, this xmas I went home to see my family in Ireland (I live in Australia) and stopped in Thailand on the way back, the camera broke when I was snorkeling, 4 days out of Warranty!!!! Same issues as you guys had. When I got back on the 16th Jan I brought it back to the shop, the guy told me my best bet would be to get onto Olympus directly and explain the situation. I did and they told me to send it in. I wrote a letter of complaint and sent it in with the camera (I also had problems with my XD corrupting itself, and I lost a lot of pic's). Yesterday when I came in from work there was note in my letterbox from Australia airmail saying they had tried to deliver a package to me but there was nobody home. Just found out awhile ago it's a new camera, a 795:) so I'm well happy. Will buy an extended warranty aswell tho, just in case. Sooo my advice is to deal directly with Olympus and not with any shops or agents.

Yep. another lens stuck.


i had this problem after putting it in a jug of bear (i know, i know...not so smart)...i washed the camera with a small amount of dishwashing detergent and a good rinse and it seemed to solve the problem for me....not sure if this is the recommended way of dealing with it though.

Lens


The very delicate and fragile lens mechanism has been skewed by that knock. Try Olympus for a repair price but I suspect you will be buying that new camera once you see the price
