Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera
There is a chance you can fix this. It sounds like the focusing ring is stuck or jammed. What you can try to do is spray some compressed air ($4 at Walmart) into the lens to try to free up any sand or dust that may have worked its way in. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
If that doesn't help, the camera will have to be totally disassembled to get at the focusing ring. It's quite a job, but not impossible, just requires patience and remembering what goes where and how.
I wouldn't bother about having the camera repair, since the cost of repair would probably be more than a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
