Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends 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.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

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.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

What size uv filter do i need for an olympus sp-570uz camera ?


The SP-570UZ does not have a filter thread; therefore, lens filters cannot be attached directly to the camera.

Filters with 55mm diameter can be attached to the SP-570UZ via the CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter, sold separately. However, it is not recommended because vignetting may occur in the corners of the image when the camera is set to wide angle positions.

The CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter (Item #202104) is available from authorized Olympus dealers and also online from The Olympus Store: http://emporium.olympus.com

Xd card will not lock into slot onto olympus sp-570uz


The bad news is that xD is slow and only used by Olympus and Fuji, with Fuji in the process of abandoning it. Eventually Olympus probably - hopefully.
Your camera is better off using a sd card. Try that.

And, could it be that your camera only takes a sd card?

Olympus SP-570UZ-zoom error


Had 570UZ for 2 weeks and "ZOOM ERROR" occured. Seemed hopeless. Changed batteries several times, bought new Alkaline.
No change. Finally decided that it is probably a connector problem.
Turned Camera Off. Held Camera by the lense barrel. Held palm of other hand and thrust the back of the camera ( LCD side) into the
other hand. The idea being to jostle the camera contents without cracking the LCD. Did this a couple of times, turned camera on and it works fine. At least for this evening. At least for now it seems like a classic component connector problem somewhere inside the camera.

Combining zoom modes for closer long range photos


Hi, if you go into camera setup and make sure that the digital zoom is on then the camera will automatically go seemlessley from optical to digital zoom when the maximum optical zoom is reached. The digital zoom can only be used in certain modes, so if you cannot change the digital zoom to on because it is 'greyed out' change the camera shooting mode. please can you clarify the second request. Kind regards
