OLYMPUS MJU CAMERA

The camera will not switch on when cover is moved back.
I have taken it off and the switch doesn't look complete.
How easy is it to replace ?
Any diagrams available so I know what it is supposed to look like ?
Thanks.

    The black switch looks OK (although it may be a little smaller than in your sketch) but the lens doesn't open when it is moved. The problem must be internal.

    Thanks for trying James it was very helpful.

    Lens does not open. Lights are blinking abt. 30 times but nothing happens.
    Have taken the cover out and traid turn the black switch to any position and also pushed hare and there - but no luck.
    Computer does not find camera in USB-port etc.

    What should I do? Camera has been in a very small use - maybe 6 -700 pictures taken only and repair costs per hour are as big than a new Camera! ?????
    Seppo.

Hi, I had the same problem and when I took my sliding lens cover off I released that the black level was broken.  Luckily I had an old olympus which had the same part which I glued on and now it works perfectly.  I would take the camera apart and take a picture for you but it was very hard to replace the case without breaking my repaired piece.  This is what the small black lever should look like.  (first one is from side, second is from top) It turns when the case it sided along which turns a lever inside and opens the lens.  As shown in the first picture, the small black vertical part is what was broken on mine.  Try moving the part with a screw driver from side to side to see if that opens the lens.     OLYMPUS MJU CAMERA - 7ccb095.pngI hope this helps in some way.  Just ask me if you want any more help with the camera.  jameswalker3  :)

I have a Olympus -[mju:] 780. My husband, (soon to be EX) has taken my computer and with it all the software for my camera


Go to the manufacturers website and download the software you need for your camera for free. After downloading, install the software on the pc you want to use with the camera and then either connect to the computer with a cable or insert your memory card to view photos.

Card Cover Open


I have the same problem. The card-cover has to be physically held down for the camera to work. I have even taken pictures and because I didn't hold the card-cover down hard enough the pictures disappeared.
I have noticed on my camera that tiny portion of the plastic card-cover is missing. It is the very tip of the card-cover and would normally be angled up to snap into place and hold the card-cover closed. Apparantly this tiny piece of plastic broke off and now the whole camera has to be carefully handled. Can anyone tell me where I can get another card-cover?

When opening lens barrier camera will not switch on.


The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor that is behind the sliding lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

I have a olympus 400 mju camera i cannot seem to get the lens back in to close the cover now i have fitted a new battery


This normally happens when dirt or dust particles get caught between the lens segments. Check for this. If you can't do it yourself, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

Olympus Mju mini - lens cover will not open


check out first if the battery is fully charged.and if the battery is very old.then prefer replacing the battery instead of charging.and if the battery is new,then the cover of the lens must be getting stuck up so try tapping the device from all the sides it will automatically get opened.also off the camera completely and try to move the lens door manually up and down.sometimes the gear assembly gets stucked and this makes it free to  move.

Camera stopped operating


Well I know what the review says about underwater to five meters http://www.ephotozine.com/article/Olympus-Mju-725SW

but I would take it with a pinch of salt frankly.
You could get onto Olympus and tell them you know- 'You said I could take it under water - now it wont work' - They may replace it

No power when the cover slides open


It is easy to remove the front cover. 2 small screws hold it on. Try cleaning the on/off switch underneath or it may need replacing if damaged.
