Question about Olympus MJU 300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No power when the cover slides open

Unfortunately I dropped my camera about a foot onto carpet, but when the cover was open there was no power to the camera whatsoever. The lens doesn't move. Is it a question of removing the cover and cleaning or is thewre something else I can do to fix it.

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.

Dropped camera shutter doesn't work but video does


Did you remove the battery and replace it after a few moments? this will "reboot" the camera, like a cold boot from a computer. Then try again. I can't believe a landing on the carpet would cause mechanical problems, but you never know.
Could be just a setting, and that will be restored after the boot.

I have to reset date time etc everytime i turn camera on


If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.
3. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull up.
4. Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow. a570isbackupbatremove.gif 5. Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.

7. Replace the battery holder and close the memory card slot / battery cover.
8. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.

Lens cover doesn't open when switching on


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either one of those problems will require professional repair. If it hasn't suffered from a drop, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may be to weak/worn to properly power the camera, or the camera may require professional repair.

Dropped the Camera, Lens is stuck open


I already tried posting this but I think it falied. Just in case, here it is again!

I just now fixed my own Nikon S220 (very similar to 210) which suffered the same fate as yours. However, I laid my camera down on a cushioned foot-rest (you could use a couch cushion or pillow on a table) with the lens facing UP, pressed down on both sides of lens front gently yet firmly, and BAM, the lens went back in all the way. I turned the power back on and the camera is good as new (except for the small dent from the fall of course).

I suggest you try this before spending $100 on repairs and/or buying a new camera!

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on. I currently have a rubber band holding it...


Heres where your going to have to compromise or try to reach the company to see if they will repair it. Is it essentiel to you to have the factory cover? If not you could most likely make a cover out of shrink wrap or aluminum foil or you could put you camera in a bag

Zoom lens will not open - camera will not open


Drop the camera onto a carpeted floor from about a foot and a half to two feet. I did this once when my DSC-H50 had the same problem and it immediatly began to work again. It landed just on the fron edge of the cylinder around the edge. I left the lens cap on. Many people have had this same problem with other sony models and it works well for them as well. I know it sounds far fetched which is why I am including this link: http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/sony-cybershot-dscp200_question.html?qid=3653

That is where i found the information to fix the same problem you are experiencing.

Fuji finepix f50 camera was dropped with lense out, and now wont return. it also says focus error on screen. I have the same problem and Fuji want £88.00 to repair it - you can buy a new camera for...


Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Lens Stuck


If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.

Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solution is to replace the whole lens assembly.

The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).

Best regards,

Camera doesn't recognize lens cover...


I rednecked the crap out of mine. I pulled off the slide cover and placed a small piece of paper clip in the area of the copper to make a permanent contact. Then duct taped it secure and then cover the whole slide mechanism. I would not recommend this method but it worked.

Lens will not retract


In my case, there was dust in the switches that sense the cover movement.
  1. Close the sliding door and wait until the lens is drown inside (timeout).
  2. Open the screws that secure the front cover.
  3. Remove the sliding door covering the lens. There is no trick (hidden screws etc) so just use the force. The door is mounted by two-sided tape and adhesive.
  4. Remove the front cover. This is also mounted by two-sided tape / adhesive in the center, so you have to be a bit brave.
  5. The sliding door rails and the movement sensors are now visible. Clean all dirt.
  6. Try the door functionality.
  7. Mount the front cover after the lens works as it should. Close the screws.
  8. Mount the sliding door.
