you sdaid power surge on the laptop. Thus suggests that this may have affected the camrera. I would think a 'repair' if such is possible will be near the cost of replacement. Only Olympus can advise

SOURCE: Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?

Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

SOURCE: Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?

I had all the same problems with the camera that first started with a "memory card error" (the memory card was not the problem). I also only could get a "background" screen on the LCD. I was totally frustrated to the point that I figured I'd have to buy another camera. So, I figure it wouldn't hurt to manhandle the camera. I lightly tried to pushed the lens back in while pressing the power on-off button... The camera lens pushed and jerked (I didn't really fight the push). Thinking I did nothing... I then tried turning it on again....like magic, the camera turned on normally with screen showing ready to take the next picture. And no more "memory card error" either. I don't really know how this worked, or whether it'll work for anyone else, but it did for me.

I have a Nikon AF-S 55-200mm 1:4-56ED. Focuses fine, lens goes in and out fine...except...it doesn't retract completely flush with the barrel of the lens. Is this a big problem?


I do not have that particular lens in my collection, but not all lenses do completely retract to a flush position. If your lens performs well at all focal lengths and takes sharp pictures, it is probably ok.

Shutter lense is stuck out, want retract. Display went black. want retract and display is black.


Hi, It sounds like the lens is stuck, possibly from dropping? Either way if lighting tapping it doesn't work then unfortunately there's no way it can be fixed.

My samsung pl50 won't turn on it just bleeps at me when i try and the shutter is stuck out. it was working fine when i was taking pics of my sister then it just shut down n won't turn back on


I've sent back 2 phones with this exact problem. Came on here and found the solution on the blog from another camera. It works! Here it is:
Figured it out....the zoom lense, while in the open position, was a little out of line, thus preventing the camera from retracting it. After gently re-aligning the lense, it retracted properly and the camera resumed normal functioning.
So basically, wiggle the lens every so slightly then try the power button again. Hope it works for you!

You definitely have some dirt on the outside of your lense. You need to keep it clean by holding cloth on the outside of the lense. Turn the camera off. If the lense does not retract fully, while turning it off, press on the lense (up and down motion with the lense motion) very softly for a few times. The lense should retract 100% inn. If not %100 retreacted, but almost 100% retracted push the lense a little harder in until it retracts all the way in exactly the normal position. That should take care of your problem. Good luck

Zoom and camera shuts off


Verify you have the right kind of battery and fully charge it.
The lense issue you describe commonly happens when the device cannot access enough power to function correctly, so it retracts and powers off to avoid getting your lense stuck in the 'out' position if the battery goes dry.

Stylus 300 won't stay on??


In the cameras I own, there is a setting where you can adjust the time the camera stays on. It's usually in the set-up screen. Is that setting miss-set?
