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

Hi, I have the Olympus Tough 3000 and I notice that the low battery sign comes on all the time even after i charge it all night. Do you know if this happens often to other olympus camera. Thanks


This should have little to do with the brand of the camera. It sounds more like a defective battery or charger, especially since this is a relatively new model.
Are you using the battery that came with it or a 3rd party battery? If you're using the battery that came with it and it is immediately dying even after a full night charge, you may be able to get it replaced under warranty (your camera has a 12 month warranty).

MY CAMERA DOES NOT TURN ON AND IT WAS WORKING PERFECTLY FINE ONE DAY AND I LEFT IT ON THE USB CORD ON MY COMPUTER AND IT DOES NOT WANT TO TURN ON WHY IS THAT ?


If you left the camera turned on all night, most likely you've drained the batteries. The camera does not include any charging circuitry, and does not charge the batteries via the USB connection. In fact, connecting the camera actually drains the batteries faster, since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if it's only to say that it has nothing to say).

Camera turns off immediately after being turned on. thought it was the battery, bought new one charged it and even though it says full charge, the camera still wont stay on.


This fault is usually caused by a lens problem.
Over 95 percent of lens problems are from Knock damaged or sand/grit in mechanism. Try turn it on in playback mode and see, does the lens come out and go back in before it turns off?
Cheers.
