The Olympus Stylus is a point and shoot digital camera that provides a weatherproof feature for additional safety. It has an interface that provides information on the status of the camera's computer. The camera comes with a one year limited warranty to cover some damage issues. Once the warranty expires, the repairs are at the owner's expense. Many repairs to the camera can be handled by the consumer without the need for a technician.
How to Repair an Olympus Stylus Digital Camera
1.Diagnose the problems the camera is experiencing and prepare the tools accordingly. If the camera needs to be opened, a small Philips screwdriver will be needed. Additional batteries, a blow brush cleaning kit and memory cards can be beneficial to ensure repair quality as well.
2. Power problems can normally be remedied by changing the AA batteries. If the batteries are not working, plug in the AC adapter to test the power. Lens issues may also stop the camera from powering on.
3. If the camera lens will not open or focus, then small debris or sand may be stuck in the gears of the lens. If so, the casing of the camera will need to be opened. Access the lens housing and blow clear any debris with a blow brush kit. Close the casing and try powering on the camera to test how the lens operates.
4. If the lens housing is knocked out of alignment, and the camera will not power on, it is possible to realign it. Open the casing of the camera using the Philips screw driver and access the lens housing. Gently adjust the area with a soft item or with the blow brush tip. Enclose the casing and turn the camera back on to verify if it works correctly.
5. If a memory card is not recognized when inserted into the slot, clean the gold contacts of the memory card and reinsert it. If the card is still not recognized, then format the card using the computer menu. If still not recognized, replace the card with another one. The reader in the camera may also be damaged and need to be repaired.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.
I had a friend that ran into the same problem, but his solution is not what I would recommend but it did work for him. He used sewing machine oil and applied a tiny amount less than a drop to the crevice of the camera body and the outer lens housing, his was stuck in the retracted position, and he got it going again without a problem.
This Seems to Be a Fault With Your Phone And May Not Be Able To Be Fixed unless done Professionally.
1. Take The Back cover Off your Phone And Take the Battery out Then close the lens cover, then put the battery bakc in then go onto camera and open your lenz, this might work, if not then your camera might not work. thankyou,
If the lens barrel isn't fully extending on power up, that will prevent the lens cover shutters from springing open. There is a stationary prong that pushes the cover closed when the barrel is retracted.
Does the camera work otherwise? Take pictures thru the half open lens?
NO Super glue this can be fixed pretty easily to get fixed. most local shops will not charge you to much to fix it maybe 15 to 20 at the most i figure. or you can remove the lens cover by putting a very small flat head screw driver on the side of the lens and with the camera off pull away from the camera and it should just pop off. Superglue if you get it on the lens will rune the whole thing. Just tiring to help out . I repair lens shutters all the time they are just mechanical parts nothing really special about them.
Same problem with the red flash icon. I can take a picture if I turn off the flash as well, but have to turn off the flash every time I open the lens. Have had the camera for 5 years and haven't had a problem. We needed to replace the lens cover recently and after we replaced the cover we started having this flash problem. It was working fine before the cover came off which leads me to believe we've changed our settings somehow....pleas
I had the same exact issue. LISTEN UP I CAN FIX THIS. I began disassmbly and removed the outer shell of the camera (after I realized my warranty was no longer valid of course). I found that with the majority of the outer shell removed the lens opened again... Hmm I thought, Curious.
I will cut to the chase. My theory: the "waterproof seals" don't allow for an adequate change in volume within the sealed cavity when the lens is fully opened. You can see the seals going concave and convex as the camera struggles to open the lens. it can't. I am not sure why this issue develops over time. But who cares I have an easy way to fix it.
SOLUTION: Break the seal every time you open your lens. Sounds like a bad solution at first. EXCEPT you can break the seal by simply opening the DC USB port that you would normally open download you pics. So just right of the dial pop open the DC USB cover. Turn on your camera opening the lens and take as many pictures as you want. Also once the lens is out feel free to close the USB port cover to prevent water damage.
easy! charge the battery.With power off,whack the base of the camera against the palm of your hand four or five times.wait five minutes,turn camera on and whack the side of the camera nearest the lens against the palm of your hand.then whack the base again and the lens should pop out.Worked for me!!!
