Probably!

The slider is held in its groove by a plastic liner and part of mine wore away with the upshot that when I slid it open, the tiny pin on the slider dropped back a little way. We are only talking a tiny amount here but it was enough to activate the switch to reclose the lens so the thing was sliding in and out of its own accord as I rocked the slider.

I simply superglued in a tiny piece of plastic in where the worn away bit was and it cured it!

Regrding Olympus Stylus 500.. When turned on the lens cover opens half way twice then closes with a green flashing light and beeping sound.


Have just solved similar problem with mine. Problem turned out to be that the lens cover was very slightly dented in. It didn't really look dented at all, but just wasn't quite symmetrical and was a bit more recessed on the side away from the shutter button. This was causing it to rub on the case when it tried to slide. (Mine had been not sliding completely shut for a while before it stopped opening properly too).

To fix it I undid two small cross head screws which let the front panel be prised off. On mine, with the front panel off, the lens and lens cover mechanism all worked perfectly, as the problem was that the lens cover was rubbing on the front panel. If yours is still broken with the front panel removed, then your problem is not the same as mine...

I used a small screwdriver to push out the metal bar on which the top of the lens cover slides, pushing on the right hand end of the bar to slide it left and out through the USB connector compartment door. That lets the top of the cover come off the bar and move freely. To take the cover off, it has to be detached from the arm which moves it. There is a pivot trapped in a slot in the arm, but once the cover is off the bar at the top, it can be moved down so that the pivot reaches the bigger hole at the bottom end of the slot in the arm. This lets the whole lens cover come off the camera.

I then used a screwdriver to gently push out the middle of the cover until its shape was more symmetrical. (I'm not sure a screwdriver was ideal for this, as there are now tiny lumps in the cover where I was pushing it).

Putting it back together was the reverse of taking it apart, although you can test whether it's fixed or not before doing up the screws holding the front panel on.

When turn on nothing shows in the sreen


The LCD may be broken. Does the lens extend, and does the camera take pictures? If so, the LCD lens probably got bumped and broken. Other possibility is that the shutter isn't opening. I called a local camera shop one time about this problem, and they wanted $125 to fix it, so I fixed it myself, getting a used camera like it off ebay and swapping it out. If you don't change it yourself, I'd recommend just buying a new one. A 10.1 mp camera goes on sale these days for $69, which is usually cheaper than having them repaired.

This may be a repair issue with the sensor that is located behind the front sliding lens cover. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Olympus Camedia D 510 Lens cover not tight enough to keep power on.


The solution, by jimr929, to not touch the lens cover at all, works perfectly for me too, as mine is also a 2002 model.

Lens retracting but won't stay open


Hey kbwilson,
This could be a quick fix for an authorized service technician, but it could also be damage to the lens and the only way to know is to have it looked at by an authorized service technician. A common cause of this problem is some kind of obstruction in the lens movement (i.e. sand in the lens), which should be able to be remedied by a cleaning of the lens by a technician. I would not attempt fixing the camera yourself because you could end up doing more harm than good.

Sincerely,
Allan

No power when the cover slides open


It is easy to remove the front cover. 2 small screws hold it on. Try cleaning the on/off switch underneath or it may need replacing if damaged.

well the problem it´s on the switch that turns on the camera that is located under the lens cover.... this swith is glued to the front cover and lots of times gets unglued, u need to remove the lens cover by removing 2 screws on the bottom part of the lens cover, after that just pull the switch slowly and glue it. don´t use 3 seconds glue use a more viscose one. good luck

Lens will not come out of camera


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.

Slider Prob


Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle position. It sounds like it is stuck in some spot between close and idle. Since it cant reach the closed position or idle its shutting down. The only way to get it to work is to try and free the lens so it can cycle threw. There must be a lip on the slider and the lens is stuck on this lip so you cant slide it. Remove the batteries then try and slide the door open try and slide somthing between the lens and the door to free it up. This is the only way to get it threw the cycle. It may need to be serviced It sounds like the switch for the slider door is warn or has broken. It may work again if you can free the lens.
