Re: Cover open

The cover opens in two positions. To completely open the lens cover for shooting images, slide the lens cover over until you hear two clicks. When the camera is on the first position, you can playback images.

My Sony DSC T7 camera lens problem, When I slide the cover of lens, its says that "Lens cover Closed". so I am unable to take picture. Please help me. Thanks Anil


Mr anil there seems to be a problem with the sensor linked to the lens guard. Try to move the lens cover a few times and try to open the cover as much as possible just to initiate the sensor. If this does not solve the problem then you have to show it to a mechanic.
Regards.

Hello csdiskau:

Does the camera come on when you slide the cover?
If nothing happens, the problem may be in the camera.
If the camera starts, but has no picture, then there is internal problems and could be a bad ccd.

If the camera starts and you can start the menus, there is internal problems.

DSC-S40 , my camera wotn switch mode.


If you opened and unable to find the switch, then the switch might be snapped, or the sw slider was not aligned to the sw itself. you can find it by aligning the sw slider of the back cover to the main board, its a very small switch soldered on the board near the upper portion of the LCD panel. If you find it, slide it to leftmost, at the same time, move also to the leftmost the sw slider at the back cover. Assemble it carefully, thanks

Lens will not come out of camera


There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.

No picture on screen


Aside from the sliding lens cover, there is a tiny lens cover electronically opened when camera is power on. Check to see if it's not opening. If so, give the camera a snap to the surrounding of the lens part and try to turn on again.

Cover open, camera does not turn on.


Completely open lens cover by sliding the lens cover all the way to the right until you hear two clicks. The first click will put the camera into playback mode. The second click will put the camera into shooting mode.
