Question about Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom Digital Camera
When I slide the lens barrier open, the lens will come out, but won't stay out. The green light flashes as if it would still operate if it weren't for the lens issue. Can I fix this myself, or is it a quick fix for a professional?
The slider is held in its groove by a plastic liner and part of mine wore away with the upshot that when I slid it open, the tiny pin on the slider dropped back a little way. We are only talking a tiny amount here but it was enough to activate the switch to reclose the lens so the thing was sliding in and out of its own accord as I rocked the slider.
I simply superglued in a tiny piece of plastic in where the worn away bit was and it cured it!

This could be a quick fix for an authorized service technician, but it could also be damage to the lens and the only way to know is to have it looked at by an authorized service technician. A common cause of this problem is some kind of obstruction in the lens movement (i.e. sand in the lens), which should be able to be remedied by a cleaning of the lens by a technician. I would not attempt fixing the camera yourself because you could end up doing more harm than good.
