Question about Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi, how is the best way to clean the lens of the Olympus C-740? I have a fingerprint on it. Is it really true that I have to buy lens cleaner or can I just use a microfiber cloth? Will cleaning it ruin any of the 'covering' on the lens, or is the lens glass? Can you let me know if I need to rub, not rub, or rub in circles, etc? There seems to be a lot of conflicting info on the net. Thanks!

Photo lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth used gently will work. A handier solution that you could carry with you is a product called "lenspen". If there's a photo store nearby, they would have it in stock. You could also find one at amazon.com

We cannot use this because the CD's all skip. We found out that there aren't replacements to buy, we tried at Best Buy. we really miss being able to play CD's. Can you help.


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it skip.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Take care.

Many problems are caused by fingerprints on the lens. Clean the lens surface gentley with lens cleaner and a lint free cloth. Make sure you get into the "corners" as well. This will restore sharpness and contrast in most cases.

The playstation got really sensitive with reading disks


Sounds like you need to clean the lens on your PS2. The best solution is to find a DVD player lens cleaner from a local electronics store (make sure it is a good quality one, don't buy the cheapest one) and put it into your PS2 disc tray. It will play the disc using the DVD player on the PS2. Make sure you follow the directions for the lens cleaner very carefully, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your lens.

That should help with the reading issues. Good luck!

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Regards, Andy

It Skips


Either the disk is dirty or the laser lens is. Buy a DVD lens cleaner and use on your player. For the disks, carefully wipe it with lint-free cloth or toilet tissue. Be careful not to scratch the disk. All you are really trying to do is wipe off any fingerprints or lint/dirt.
