Question about Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Broken track The track is broken on my Olympus C-50. Any suggestions

    It seems by reading the other posted comments that this is a problem with the DNA in the C-5. Specifically the lower guide track breaks and the camera can no longer turn on and off properly. Replacement of the track is the only remedy. Is it worth it to you?? Purchase another C-50 for parts and repair yourself, have someone else repair it for under $50 is a good alternative if you're sure of their technical ability and reliability. For myself, I'll purchase another C-50 for parts and then give the camera to one of my kids and see how well they show interest in photography and responsibility for the camera. I'll never purchase another Olympus again because of this problem and the fact that you can only use the Olympus memory card of NO larger that 125Meg in the camera. Thumbs down on Olympus for the design and uncompromising need to force the buyer to use only products with their name on them and limiting the memory aspect of the camera. dand

I have the same problem. I contacted Olympus and it is 29.95 plus tax to repair. Right now I am getting around the problem by holding the cover and controlling it as I open or close to make sure the camera turns off and on.

I purchased a second reconditioned camera from Olympus on the auction site for $35.00 and it arrived yesterday.

It comes with everything except a remote. The battery is the newer L12B. Considering the cost of a replacement OEM battery and the camera looks new, it seemed to be the best work around to having the camera repaired.

I keep it because I have the underwater case for this model and to buy a case for another camera is big bucks..

Olympus Voice Recorder says only 6 hours time when it's empty


Hello
The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended. When the recorder is connected to a computer, individual files can be deleted using My Computer without negative effects.after you format the unit this is how needs t

The front cover track has broken, where can I get the replacement part for the camedia c50


It is a common fault as the guide track is plastic.
Mine went within a year of purchase back in 2003.
Reported it to Olympus, who informed me that a worldwide warranty wasn't valid (bought in Malaysia), however I sent the damaged one and they sent me a free replacement with UK warranty!

Broken Lcd panel


Broken LCD screen is quite easy to replace on the FE-170 and FE-210. I have purchased cameras with bad lens but good LCDs on ebay pretty cheaply( compared to having Olympus repair camera).

Looking part fot Olympus C-50


The slide guide is part of the plastic chassis not much can be done with the slot, I solved the problem by making a new part...it a "T" shaped bar made from aluminum with two 0-80 threaded holes tapped into it the top of the T replaces the long steel spacer and the vertical part of the T rides in the slot instead of the two bullet nosed screws, it doesn't matter if the slot is broken because the T bar will bridge the broken portion...I have done three of these cameras and they all work fine. Email me jarg1@gwi.net and I will send a drawing of the part. I will be making a kit for this repair in the spring of 2008.

Broken shutter


The C-50 camera is notorious for the broken door and/or broken track. It was fixed on the C-60 model.
There are a few shops on eBay that sell the front door, its a very easy replacement, just two screws and a guide plate on the bottom that you install and assuming your track is still operational, you'll beable to use your camera.
