    I spoke with coolguy008 earlier today about this problem. Unfortunately, he was as ignorant as I about my camera. He suggested batteries that are like flashlight batteries for my camera that can only accommodate the battery in it now. I will not rely on your "experts" again and am so sorry i signed up for the fixya service. What a waste of money and time!!!!

I try to turn on my Camedia C-730 Ultra Zoom camera and I just get several beeps and nothing happens. I tried new batteries and I also tried a direct connect power supply.

Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who may be able to offer parts and service on the camera.
As a loyal Olympus customer, the Customer Service Department is also available to discuss other options available to you.
They can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00PM East Coast time, at: 1(800)622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

When I turn on my camera it says zoom error & turns off.

The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if outside of the one year factory warranty period. The cost is $144.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Lense error

I had the same problem with my Nikon coolpix camera. Fortunately, I found a very strange solution from :

"Hit the camera on the palm of your hand a few times (hit the side of the camera , not the lens). Try it slow at first, if it does not work try to hit it harder (but gently). "

I'm not sure if it will work with an Olympus camera and if this is a permanent solution ( a co-worker borrowed and lost my camera after a few months!!) . Also, there is a risk that you will permanently damage the camera. If your camera is under warrany send it for repair.

Good luck!
