Re: trouble with my olympus u 700.

Hi powerp,
I had the same problem with mine, and was advised by a friend of mine who is a digital buff, that the lens is not it it's right position.
Though it sounds a bit 'hammers to walnuts' kind of solution, his advice cured my mju700.
1/ Remove the battery and xd card.
2/ Hold the camera VERY tightly.
3/ Shake the camera violently for a few seconds (15 or so)
4/ Refit the battery and XD card, and switch on again.
Following this advice, mine know works fine.
The theory behind this is that particles of stuff get into the lens and cause the problems. Be carefull that your camera is always safe when on the beach etc !
I hope it works for you !

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.

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.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
