    I also have the same problem

  • feilenp Jul 28, 2008

    I agree with the fact it made a weird noise and won't retract. i hope this is a warrantied repair. I have only had the camera for 7 months and charged the battery a max of 3 times only. I really like this camera, but, the lense definitely went out and won't retract. Olympus suggested I send it in as the self help is fairly complicated.

    from what daddygmac9 suggested that should fix the problem. I'm trying to do it now and it's a bit complicated for me unless daddygmac9 will walk me through it ^^;

  • NeonFrog May 11, 2010

    So I took the camera about as I have the same problem with the lense fully extended and jammed.


    The part circled in the pic by linhaserotic, what exactly am I gluing? My part isn't loose. It seems quite solid. I was expecting it to be loose and then I would glue it into position. Can anyone help on the subject please?

It's a little tricky but with a small eyeglass screwdriver and some super glue you can do it. I had the problem, here is what you do. 1 romove the five screws two on bottom NOTE one of the bottom screws is longer than the rest. two on side one on other side. 2 gently remove housing, 3 then remove chrome ring that surrounds three sides of camera. 4 inside there are four screws remove them and separate camera. there is a small metal clip that came unglued you can see where it belongs you must gently turn the wheel till the retainer is all the way to the left away from wheel.the clip goes under the shaft use a little super glue to glue it back. the hardest part is the screen plug lift up black piece line it up and then lock the black piece down it took me about an hour and a half.even with my fat sausage fingers. if you shoot me an e-mail with your phone number i can walk you through it. daddygmac9@yahoo.com good luck

    So nice! I've just repaired my mother's camera. Your fix worked for me too.
    Thanks, Marco

  • alex93101 Sep 01, 2010

    daddygmac9, THANK YOU! I couldn't have fixed my Stylus 760 without your directions. To those whom come across these very effective directions, please pay extra attention to the capitalized portion of the following part of daddygmac9's directions: "turn the wheel till the retainer is all the way to the left AWAY FROM WHEEL." As it may vary, either left or right, depending on how you're holding the camera you are repairing. Thanks again, daddygmac9. You saved me having to buy a new camera. P.S. Of the people who thought this was helpful, I was #30.

  • DewChugr Nov 27, 2010

    Thanks so much man, that just saved me buying a new camera, One thing, you said turn the wheel until the retainer is all the way to the left away from the wheel. When I am looking at the back of the camera, top up, it is moving to the right, not left, but yes, away from the gear.

    SUPER tip!!!!

    Hi. I don't understand well where I must put the glue from the photo posted by linhaserotic.
    I have put some bottom of it the number 2, as in photo http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/8025/ol... . The clip in metal (number 1, in photo) in which position must be? is it this that must be glued to the number 2? Someone can post a photo of as it must be?... thanks.

    wait can someone explain how do i put the camera back together after I've glued the part. i'm a little confused on it

  • Taylor Risner Feb 21, 2012

    how do i put it back together ? i dont see a screen plug? or i cant find it

  • Skualos Sep 26, 2013

    Nice. Your solution works. Be careful with the amount of glue, and the correct position. You can spin the wheel by hand, to put the "stage" is easier. Thank you. (translated with google ... sorry if there are errors in translation)

The photo and solution does work, but a clarification. The metal clip in the photo has to be BETWEEN the opaque plastic wheel/gear and the rectangular metal piece. The gear turns on threads inside the metal retangular piece, causing the metal piece to move back and forth along the threaded rod. The metal clip that becomes dislodged fits between the gear and the metal rectangle. when the motor moves, it pulls the clip (and objective) to the left. Simply turn the gear until the metal rectangle is to the RIGHT, then insert the clip behind the threaded rod and superglue back in place.

One other thing....if the ribbon connector from the back of the camera comes loose....it slides back into place pretty easy BUT there is a very thin dark locking bar that pushes down on top of the ribbon to hold it in place....make sure that is ok before closing it up.

I also glued the part that linhaserotic suggested and photographed, and it worked also for me!!!
I fixed also my camera!!!
I was confused by the phrase "turn the wheel till the retainer is all the way to the left away from wheel" from daddygmac9 . I think it is "to the right". But is is indeed all away from the wheel until the metal strip can be positoned without stress.
Again, many thanks.

Looks like you should check back with the entry "the lense wont go back into the camera" ... it's the same problem.

The solution posted there explains what probably went wrong, but was complicated enough that you might want to bring the camera by a repair place anyway... I have the same problem with my camera too, and I'm printing out that error message and solution to take with me...

The sound your camera is making, is probably the slipping from the gears, grinding them down, because something is blocked. Even when you can't see any blockage. Please don't leave the battery in, to avoid more damage. Contact a certified Olympus repair centre, or visit your dealer with the camera.

Lens not setting back


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that has failed in the lens assembly of the camera. It needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Error code D: 5f08 8234


Check the power source, make sure the battery is fully charged.

If you have another battery you can try that other battery and see if the lens is able to extend and retract properly.

Try to reset the camera through the menu. If that does not solve the issue then the camera would need to be sent into Olympus for repair service.

I just posted this answer on an old Dec. 07 posting.

In case you can't find it, try opening the DC IN / USB port cover just to the right of the dial. This breaks the waterproof seal and allows the camera to open. I think the design flaw is an inadequate volume differential in the water sealed cavity to properly account for the change in volume caused by the lens opening / retracting. The USB cover can be closed once the lens is open to restore the waterproof characteristics.
