Question about Olympus FE-5010 12MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Dual Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD

1 Answer

Camera will not turn on

When we turn on our Olympus camera, a red light on the back flashes, then the lens of the camera goes in and out about 4 times. Then the camera just shuts off. We are not sure what the issue is with it. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Same exact thing......My mom thinks it needs a new battery.


Hi!
It sounds like your camera lens focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears - that's the weak spot of these lens. If you can't open the lens and check your lens focus gears yourself, you should contact your local Olympus service center or other camera service center. You can contact me too at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can give you a good price.

Hope this helps!

Olympus 1050 SW completely unresponsive to any button


the lens may be stuck ... that is not coming out or not returning in either condition causes it to do something like that ,i.e blingink red light or an error code etc .... solution is that you'll need to open up the camera with a set of precission screw drivers and manually turn in or out the lens to start it back in operation either ways its a bit technical if you never did it before ....could be caused by moisture getting into the camera .....

Lens opens out and then shuts off


I hope I'm not being dense here, but that sounds like what mine does when the batteries are flat. Try swapping batteries and see what happens.

I have recently had the same problem. I sent my camera back to Olympus who very efficiently repaired it FOC and sent it back with an extended warranty. I gather this is a very common problem with this camera.

If you mean that it is a new camera - then returnit to the seller for replacement as it seems to be an internal fault.
