Hi,

This either means that something is jamming the lens , or that the lens sensor is faulty. This is a very , if not the most common problem with modern digital camera's.

Most of the time the problem is that sand , dirt and grit gets lodged in the camera lens barrel thus keeping it from extending properly but could also be caused by a drop or a hard knock on the camera.

Firstly , the odds are not with you on a DIY fix so don't be disappointed when the following steps do not work.Nevertheless , some people have fixed their camera's using the following steps.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly try charging your batteries overnight and then try the camera again tomorrow.
Try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

These 3 options provide your camera with more power available to the extension mechanism which could overcome some of the particles that are lodged in there if there are any.

Try using compressed air (best is a clean air can bought at a electronics store) and blow between the lens and the casing. This should help dislodge some of the particles.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' are misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down) so that some of the particles can escape. Also try moving the lens away from the side with the biggest gap (also upside down)

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it tries to extend but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing.

Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

As a last resort if you decide to replace the camera try hitting the camera near the lens with increasing force with the palm of your hand. Between each hit , try using it again.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi Ms Garcini, When the battery is low or dead the lens will not retract because there is no battery power going to the small motor that moves the lens. Charge the battery fully, and your lens will retract again. J.

Turn camera on only when the lens is facing upwards. Silly but it works at times

This error is due to the fact ur lense gears are off track simply turn ur camera on and as the lense comes out pull it till it comes all the way out dont be scared to pull and wiggle it a lil bit

if that doesnt help and if your camera is out of warranty.....

1. Remove the 3 silver screws on the side and bottom of the camera.
2. Remove the 1 silver screw in the data port.
3. At the point of the bottom screw, pry the front cover up and work around to the thin side of the camera. Once you have this end pried up, you can pull the front cover off exposing the front half of the camera.
4. Remove the plastic chrome spacer ring that goes around the sides of the camera. Start where the bottom silver screw was and work it around and off. Careful, it's a bit flimsy.
5. Remove the 4 black crews at each corner of the camera.
6. Again, starting from the thin side of the camera, pry the front half of the camera (grey) away form the back half (silver). There's a bit of sticky stuff holding them together, but keep pulling gently but firmly until the two halves are seperated. NOTE: There is a flat "hook" on the bottom of the back half of the camera that is under the serial number sticker - you may need to gently lift up the sticker to get this hook to come free (I used a knife blade to pry up the sticker).
7. Once you have the two halves free, notice the copper colored ribbon cables between the front and back halves of the camera - BE SURE TO NOT SEPERATE THE HALVES TOO FAR OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THESE CABLES!
8. Now turn the camera on. My problem was solved that this point - lenses fully extended with no problems and LED screen acting normally.
9. Reassemble the camera in reverse order. The only tricky part is the "hook" on the bottom of the back half needs to go *under* the serial number sticker.


If none of this works then your only option would be to go in for a lens assembly Replacement

Good luck with You cam
Thank You for using Fixya
Have a nice day

Olympus all weather 760 errors 5f08 5f0a 5e02 Blue error message lens will not retract makes burring sound help please


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.

OLYMPUS 760. It says a code then blue bg. My lens won't turn back when I off it. Now, it' stayed like that. I opened my cam but idk what part im gonna fix. HELP :(


There is a small metal plate inside this camera that detatches from the plastic. you have to rotate a gear to retract a metal block then superglue the plate back to the plastic.

It is a quite easy repair but fiddly and the secret is to know how the gear retractcs the metal block to the correct position.

I just finished repairing mine and very pleased with the result.

Lens will not close


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

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.

Olympus Stylus 760 problem


I just called technical support and they told me the camera has an internal problem. You have to call them if your camera is still under warranty and send it to a repair center.
