How To Remove The Fixed Lens From The Olympus E-10 For Cleaning
My Olympus E-10 digital camera has a fleck of dust behind the attached lens. I need to know how to remove the lens for cleaning? Or how to remove the outer rim that protects the lenses from dust and scratches. I think this dust is a piece of something that must have been there before I bought it because I am not quite sure how it would get there. I have used a UV Filter to protect the outer lens and this piece of dust is behind the main attached lens on the camera. Can anyone tell me how to carefully remove or take apart the outer rim to insure no damage but to clean the partials from inside the camera? This causes a spot on all my photos that I have to remove each time with Photoshop. Not a big deal but now I am interested in selling my camera and accessories and I can't imagine someone would want to buy a camera with dust inside the main focus lens. Any advise would be more than helpful.

This cleaning process is very delicate and sensitive. Cleaning lens should be done by authorized or pro camera technician. I suggests you to bring it to the nearest cam service center because they have appropriate tools to open the camera and properly clean it. A single failure or error on cleaning it by yourself might give fatal result to your camera.
If there is dirt or other deposits on the LCD panels they are usually most visible at the extremes of focus. They will be blobby. You may also be seeing dead pixels which are clearly visible when in focus.The lens assembly itself will be sealed and is unlikely to be the problem, don't worry about flecks of dust in the lens area. You can clean the external lens with a soft cloth, much like a camera lens.
Projector internal optics are non-user servicable. If you can't live with the spots it will need to go to an approved center for cleaning / or repair. You should be able to find out where via this page
it is looklike that is the lens motor ***'y or some dust or send in gear system /you can try a air dust can to blow air arround the lens base ,you may have a liitle button to remove the plastic ring that protect the lens base from dust,, if it not works you may need a lens alignement....
hope that will help you
The SP-570UZ does not have a filter thread; therefore, lens filters cannot be attached directly to the camera.
Filters with 55mm diameter can be attached to the SP-570UZ via the CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter, sold separately. However, it is not recommended because vignetting may occur in the corners of the image when the camera is set to wide angle positions.
The CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter (Item #202104) is available from authorized Olympus dealers and also online from The Olympus Store: http://emporium.olympus.com
Lens is stuck!... Possible some dust won't let the zoom to move.
Hold upsite down the lens and very softly tapped around.but do not force the lens. then try to turn on in same condition. If did not worked
try to oposite , Show lens optic to up to sky and try again.
If did not moved you need techguy to remove and clean the lens base from dust and lubricated again.
Your lens is gone now, sell it on ebay as is, and buy another camera like yours for $20-30. Repairing such camera may involve just dust cleaning like very thin sand etc. or more work; anyway if you can find a guy who will do it for $10 then have it done. If not sell it on ebay for 10-20 and buy another one for 30. Keep the accessories!
For me the issue was flecks of dust on the CCD. Complete fix for d40x effected as follows:
(You will need a 'rocketblower' or similar air cleaning device)
Take the lens off. Set camera to Manual setting and spin around to 'bulb' setting, press the button to shoot but hold it down. You will see the CCD exposed inside the hole where the lens usually attaches. Then taking care not to touch the CCD with the rocket blower give it a few blasts of air onto the ccd. (Possibly before you do this hold the camera at an angle to the light and you might see the dust flecks I had on the CCD.) Then replace let the button go and replace the lens. Voila.
There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc.
The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working.
Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
