Question about Olympus MJU II Zoom 80 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

My Olympus Mju II (NOT ZOOM) 35mm camera has started playing up.When I press the shutter there is a click but it doesn't wind on (although the display is showing all the time). If I remove the battery and put it back in it winds on sometimes immediately or sometimes after a few attempts. Can anyone advise what might be wrong. I dont believe the camera can be obtained anymore? I got this one by mail order after it had gone out of production, to replace a previous similar one which had broken and which I had been very pleased with.

Make sure the flash is coming up all the way. If it gets stuck even slightly down from fully raised, it will do what you describe.

I agree, digital P&S won't work as well as your Olympus. Plus all your shots will have to be stored on a hard drive-

There's no way for the camera itself to cause this fault, so it's either due to the lighting, the wrong film, bad processing or out of date/badly stored film. Keeping the exposed film for a long while before sending it to be processed can also produce a strong colour cast.

I suggest that you upload sample photos to a website and then post a link to them. Also, please state what film you used and whether you have had the same problem from more than a single film. If so, were they all processed at the same time and place?

In the meantime, you may wish to re-check that your remaining unused film is still in date (use by/process by dates are normally printed on the outer carton) and that they've been kept away from high temperatures. You may also wish to contact the company which processed your film as they may very likely be at fault if they've made mistakes or failed to maintain their equipment and chemicals. Note that some processors now digitally scan and then print your negatives, so scanner or printer faults can also produce a strong colour cast.

Olympus om2 stuck shutter


I have seen this before, especially on OM2-SPs, the wind on mechanism cam seems to get out of register with the shutter curtain rollers. If you remove the baseplate from the camera (4 screws) and release the cam that drives the first shutter curtain roller, this can release the shutter. You then have to re synchronise the cam with the winding mechanism, tricky, but it does work and can be done with some patience! Good luck!

How to put a timer on it for like a self portrait?


After winding the film, press the self-timer lever down all the way. The camera will take the picture about ten seconds after you press the shutter release button.

The self-timer lever is on the front of the camera on the left (looking from the front).

Is the battery dead if the film won't wind on


The camera is totally reliant upon the battery for all functions, so if it's dead then the battery is the immediate suspect.

I have a ricoh kr5 and when i take picture the mirror does not come back down and the shutter will not open


The batteries need replacing. Winding the film and setting the shutter is mechanical on your camera, but releasing the shutter is done electronically. Dead batteries cause mirror lock-up.

I doubt you still need help with this considering it's over 8 months later... but the same thing has been happening to me lately, I've had to force the self timer to start by giving it a little push, once it gets going it starts to work normally again.
