Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Mju 400 slow down with 2GB xD-PicCard?!?!


It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com

Olympus mju 700 - error D: 5e02


Hello Jakub,
As you might already know that you are not the only one who is getting this error.. there are thousands of others with you .. If that makes you happy :D
This code is a troubleshooting service code for "malfunction of focus motor/sensor". It is a motor/sensor issue and is normally caused by sand or dirt in the lens cover mechanism. Try to turn on camera while holding it with the lens pointing up.
You might even try hitting the camera on your palm in that position (by hitting, i don't mean a real HIT .. be sure that you are gentle not to break the camera).
If that doesn't work then try this... when the lens is trying to come out and cannot come out completely then you can assist the lens by pulling it out manually (once again, understand that its a delicate camera and I don't want you to show how powerful you are by pulling it with all your mighty vigor.. be hard and gentle at the same time .. I hope you understand what i mean)

Please let me know if any of the above steps work for you and do rate the solution :)
All the best.

Regards,
Srinivas

Stylus 700 error D:5f08 5e02


The error message (D: 5f08 5e02) means that your lens is dying / dead. It just happened to mine (on the Mju 700, but it's the same thing) and I was told that it could be repaired, but it would cost as much as a new camera. I've only had mine 2 years and I've been really careful with it, so I'm a bit annoyed, but I have used it a lot!

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

Diplay turning white on mju 700...


Hi

Sounds like your camera was dropped and the LCD was damaged. The white screen you see is typical for a defective LCD screen. The only way to repair the camera is to replace the bad part with a known good one.

One solution would be to buy a defective camera online that has a good LCD screen and swap them out.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
