Question about Olympus Camedia C-755 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zooming causes shutdown

The camera shuts down when I try to use the zoom. It also shuts down intermittently after taking several photos. Olympus wants to replace the circuit board for $182. Is this something I can do myself for less?

    Thanks - but unless I'm aware of some internal battery I've replaced the batteries several times with new. The camera still shuts off when it feels like it or especially when I try to zoom in or out. I still need to know if I can fix this myself (new circuit board) or if i should pay Olympus to do it?

I think your battery is weak, not holding current or not enough.

Before buying a new camera's battery, try to discharge the battery because most batteries have memory problems.

Find a small light that is rated up to the battery voltage.
Connects two wires to battery and then to light.
When the light goes out, battery is fully discharged.
Now, charge up the battery with the camera's charger
Try it on the camera.

Never leave battery in the camera, it gives out fumes that can ruin electronic circuits. You may have to replace the motherboard.

Olympus Digital Camera D-490 zoom will not take pictures outdoors


It sonds like teh shutter is stuck open. If the camera is indera year old it is probably still under warranty. Take it to an authorized repair shop and they will most likely repair it for free.

Olympus C-370 LENS GOES OUT, IN AND SHUTS OFF


It is possible that a flexible circuit connector has loosened. This can be checked by removing the covers, DISCHARGING THE CAPACITOR. (The large, black, cylinder beside the lens.) Remove the black Phillips screws holding the LCD and main circuit board and then carefully lifting the circuit and checking the large connector on the back of the main circuit. BE CAREFUL! It is easy to break the flex. The other, most likely cause is the failure of the Photo Interrupter in the lens. The only solution is to replace the lens and reprogram the camera.

Coolpix 8800 shuts down


Make sure to use good NiMH batteries. Another possiblity is a problem with the card. Borrow a card and see if it has any effect. check to see that the pins in the card slot are all aligned, none out of place. check that the card door and the battery door close firmly, with some pressure. The camera can shut down when it has a problem detecting that the doors are closed. When it does turn on, play with the zoom without taking pictures, zoom in and out, if during zoom the camera shuts down then you might have a lens problem, something is malfunctioning in the lens mechanism and the camera shuts down to prevent damage. Good luck
