Camedia C5060 Focus Problem

A few weeks ago I submitted a question re my C5060 not focusing. I paid for expert advice. The payment was acknowledged.
I haven't heard anything yet, but neither can I find my query as an outstanding one on the list of unsolved problems??
Am I looking in the wrong place?

    Thanks for this Tony. I took the earlier advice I received and sent the camera in for repair at the Olympus agent in Sydney. While they first thought it required a complete replacement of the lens tube ($360+ :( ), it turned out to be a faulty mode dial - which was replaced. Cost:$AS132. I use the camera with its underwater case a lot for scuba photography, so it might have been a salt air/water induced problem. Thought I'd mention that in case you had a a similar usage pattern.

    I had exactly the same problem just a few hours ago. I was testing a second hand C5060 which looked in good condition (no dial problem) and took some nice pictures with it. After switching for the first time to S-macro the camera stopped focusing either manually or in auto. Also to retrieve the lens was a a bit tricky. I tried several things including a reset of the camera followed by power switch off. I am considering taking it back to the seller as opposed to sending it for repair. With great sorrow as this camera is ideal to complement my Olympus e-510 for those occasions when I do not want to carry an SLR.

Is payment gateway processing fees negotiable?


Experts associated with ecommerce business acknowledge that "Payment Gateway" is a vital factor of their business. The payment gateway service providers help in secure and prompt online payments. Ecommerce establishments look for the cheapest payment gateway. The dilemma is that quite a few popular payment service providers are there to select from, people get confused which one is the best or which one will meet their all needs and will be the cheapest one. Few payment gateway companies allow negotiation, but that is possible if the business house could show a high level of transaction every day which needs to be at least 500-600 per month.
As a whole, the payment gateways need to abide RBI rules in India. So, there is always a minimum charge they have to impose. Depending on the volume of business and commercial viability of the ecommerce payment gateways can offer discounts only.

1. If you paid by credit card or bank deposit, send a copy of your bank statement, which will show the payment.
2. If you paid by PayPal, the payment should appear in payment history on your account.
3. If you paid by Western Union, only the seller can mark it as paid and you don't have any power over it.

DSC-W170 Focus does not work when in zoom mode at all?


The Focus may not work normally if:

* Twilight mode or Landscape mode or Fireworks mode is selected in the screne Selection when shooting still images.
* The Focus preset function is selected. Select the auto Focus mode.

Try Initializing the Camera as follows (Initializing the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera):

Press the Home button on the Camera. Then, select the SETTINGS -> MAIN SETTINGS -> MAIN SETTINGS 1 -> INITIALIZE -> OK.

If issue persists try Power reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

If the issue still persists then Service may requires to resolve it.

Some of the SRL camera have a dial on them to "adjust" the eyepiece so you don't have to use glasses. Either that or you bounced the internal focusing glass back into focus.

Lack of focus


I knew the problem was with the auto focus. First time I called the camera shop..they said "bring it in, we'll diagnose it...for about $200.) I tried a cvouple of days later...he said they would trouble shoot for free.

HOWEVER...he said to check to see that the lens was seated securely and correctly. I had taken lense off a few weeks ago and it was not reinstalled correctly. One small twist of the lens and back to perfect forcus!
