Olympus 700 problem

Hi,
This isn't a fault as such but I dropped my Olympus 700 camera yesterday and now when the power button is pressed on camera mode, the lens comes out a only a little bit and then goes back in, then out a bit and back again. The lens cover does not open properly either. The picture on the lcd screen is blurring and does not show the object you're aiming at. However, the photos on the memory card can be displayed on the lcd screen.

Any chance I can mess around with it and fix the problem or will I have to take it somewhere to be fixed? Also, how much would it cost to be fixed roughly?

Thank you!!

    When I push the power button, the lense goes in and out only a little bit, the lcd screen is blured, then the power turns off. I didn't drop mine (maybe my girlfriend did) like the other guy, but I'm having the same problem. Please help.

You have physically bent the lens extension mechanism.
Professional repair is required. Get an estimate first
to make sure its worth it.

The data on the memory card would not be effected
by such an accident, but copy it to a PC ASAP just
to be sure.

Hi, I somehow changed/reset my Olimpus FE-3000 language to Japanese and can not change it back. I wanted to set it to Russian. But at this point it is impossible to change to English too. Also...


Press the MENU button. Use the cursor buttons to select the crossed-wrench-and-hammer icon. Press the OK/FUNC button. Use cursor-up/down to select the speech-bubble icon and press OK/FUNC. Use the cursor keys to select a language and press OK/FUNC. Press MENU to exit.

The full instructions are in the "Changing the display language" section of the manual (page 13 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

The camera may be faulty or it needs to be reset to the factory settings.
Try removing the battery leave it out for at least 1/2 hour, then replace the battery.
If it doesn't work then you need a new camera.

Olympys camera m700 Blue Screen error Problem


HI ! this is strange as mine has just done the exact same thing on the 19th Oct !! Have Olympus put a breakdown timer in or what ??
I am sending mine back for repair as you have a 2 year guarantee on it ( you must still have the Waranty card and shop receipt though, to claim this ) . If not , then i'm afraid you may have to pay for a repair, BUT if this is an inherent fault, then you may be able to claim on this point ? I do not know what country you are in , but in the UK look at this link :
http://www.berr.gov.uk/whatwedo/consumers/fact-sheets/page38311.html
Sales of goods act
In any case , may be worth contacting Olympus Support ( you can go to their web site)

Hope this helps!

Since your camera is about 7 months old I would suggest you take to an Olympus authorized repair shop for repair under warranty. That is, if it hasn't been dropped or exposed to water or any other liquid.
