Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

The lens on my Olympus Stylus 710 will not extend when powered on. The lens tries to open a few times, but never extends to normal. The blades also try and only open half way and then close again. The camera does power on to download and that works fine. Any suggestions? Help? Thanks

Olympus stylus 1 just froze with lens extended. I took battery and card out for 2 hrs. and still no power.


Try this, set the dial to P, then open the battery door and then press the Menu button and OK button together for about 5 seconds. If you see something in the screen like Olympus? Then press the Menu and OK button together again for another 5 seconds, this is a hard reset and hope it fixes your problem?

My olympus stylus710 digital camera is currently not working. when we turn the camera on the lens opens and extends, quickly retracting. this happens several times before the unfocused screen turns blue...


That looks like a software error. Check that the battery is fully charged and read the manual at troubleshooting section. if you don't have one, seach on web and you`ll find it.

My olympus stylus 710 is in zoom view when turned on then it will just shut off then on then the display is in color blue with displays of 5f 08 and 5e 02. help?


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Error code 5f08 and 5e02 on olympus stylus 710


If the camera makes a whirring noise when switched on then unfortunately from the many threads on this issue the problem appears to be with the poor quality materials used by Olympus. The lens gearing mechanism is plastic and if it is obstructed whilst extending then the gears can become damaged or slip out of alignment. As per feedback from many other users the cost of repair and likelihood of a re-occurrance are reasons to dump the camera and go for a more reliable make. (Or try thumping it which appears to work in some cases !!)
This being a 2nd bad experience with Olympus quality they are well and truly off my list of preferred suppliers

The lens won't retract


If the lens is stuck out extended you may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair process and pricing. If the battery is fully charged and the lens still stays extended then this is a clear repair issue as something in the lens assembly has failed. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
