Question about Olympus Camedia C-900 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera lens will not shut properly

I have had my olympus camedia c-60 for a few years now, and the lens used to go in when shutting the front cover, it now does not, and makes a funny clicking sound. A Blue error screen is know appearing. Has my camera had its day, or would it be worth trying to get it repaired.

Probably not worth repairing. I would look at others in the same category and with 6 or more megapixels. You might find that for little more than repairing an OLD, worn camera you could get an upgrade. You can get a lot more camera for your money now...

As with computers and old cars, it is seldom worth throwing good money at things that have met their life expectancy and, if fixed, will fail for one reason or other in the near future. You fix one thing and another problem occurs.

The buttons not working on olympus camedia D-560


When we repair cameras we repair by replacing a part like a button board. Unlike year past when camera could be fixed most often without parts todays digital almost always need parts replaced. Manufactures are producing much cheaper products who's life span is far shorter than the 35mm of the past.

Won't take pictures.


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that is behind the lens cover door on the front of the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

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 $83 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.

Olympus Camedia D 510 Lens cover not tight enough to keep power on.


The solution, by jimr929, to not touch the lens cover at all, works perfectly for me too, as mine is also a 2002 model.

rjbjboll----How did you remove the lens cover?

Lense error


I had the same problem with my Nikon coolpix camera. Fortunately, I found a very strange solution from google.com :

"Hit the camera on the palm of your hand a few times (hit the side of the camera , not the lens). Try it slow at first, if it does not work try to hit it harder (but gently). "

I'm not sure if it will work with an Olympus camera and if this is a permanent solution ( a co-worker borrowed and lost my camera after a few months!!) . Also, there is a risk that you will permanently damage the camera. If your camera is under warrany send it for repair.

Good luck!

Code on display screen D:


same here, with my Camedia C-60 Zoom Apparently the motor has some problems. Did you take the camera to the beach? It must have caught sand or other kind of dirt in the lens mechanism. These digital cameras all have a fixed solution if they fail to work: they are meant to be thrown away. The people at Olympus also have mortgages going, don't they? Half a year ago it was already impossible to get parts for this camera, also, the memory sticks are not around any more, M-XD cards won't work with it, so, yeah, let's come to the Conclusion: this is intelligent (it can write out parts of machine code) landfill.

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.

Camedia 5-60 pictures are black


Are you sure nothing is blocking the lens on the front? there is a slide that slides open and you can see the lens right? Is the camera in manual mode or auto? if its on manual flip it to auto to test. Point the lens at the light, does the display change? If you bang on the camera does it work? there are some connection problems with some sensors and they can flake out after a while and stop working. Sometimes banging the camera or twisting the case it will flicker or start working again. If it does the sensor is the problem. The screen could be cracked also. Do you have the tv cables with it? try to hook it to the tv and see if you get a picture.
