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

    Is this a generic problem? Mine hasn't been dropped or mistreated, yet has the same fault.

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. I should have mentioned in the previous suggestion that dropping or mishandling the camera is not the only causes for this problem. Dust particles, moisture, even the camera bag can cause a lens error. If you do not feel comfortable trying these suggestions yourself, i would prefer that you take it in to your nearest service centre.

    Kind regards

This could be caused by a short circuit in the camera. As the camera is only two months old, don't recommend that you try fixing this yourself. Instead contact Olympus directly to inquire of warranty repair. If you live in the US, here's the contact info.

If the photographs that are taken can be downloaded and viewed on the PC , then the fault is with the LCD screen, If there is a possibility that water has seeped into the LCD and damaged or the LCD is faulty .
To remove will require good care as there is heavy sealing and must be done professionally. take estimate from an Olympus store or use as it is assuming the picture with experience.

I CANNOT OPEN THE LENS OF MY CAMERA. OLYMPUS TOUGH 6010. There''s a beeping sound everytime I open it. I can only view the pictures but I cannot use the shooting modes.


Apparently some problem in the inside of the camera with the lens assembly or something is disconnected. You can get in touch with the repairs of the Olympus company and see what repairs would cost. I am almost sure that the repair is going to be more than the camera is worth to you.
Many times dirt or dust can cause problems with the lens. Also this can be caused by internal problems which means repairs. In my experience with these small cameras, the lens repairs have been some of the hardest repairs to complete correctly. That is not saying that it cannot be done. If the lens is taken apart or removed, the camera should be re-calculated on a computer with the right software.

My Olympus tough 6010 wont bring the screen on and its making a beeping sound i cant get it to work battery is charged


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first, try another freah set but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Dropped camera, now when turn it on just beeps and image of camera and finger pointing to on button then turns off.


You likely have lens damage that's preventing the camera from powering up. Repair is possible, but this is not a DIY project. The camera will require professional repair, but you may have to weigh the cost of repair against the cost of a new camera.
