My Olympus C-765 camera does not focus any more. I just turned in on, and
it failed to focus (after 4 years of use). No drops or impacts..just turned it
on. It has a quiet clunk sound once the lens it at full extension on start up.
It is in focus at start up. If I move the zoom, it can not find the new focus position. I
can tap the zoom a bit one way or another and (perhaps by chance) it finds the focus. I have tried
manual focus. I can go from closest to farthest range in manual with no change in image focus at all distances. I have
tried change from ESP focus to spot, still no luck. My guess is that the (very
soft, just audible) cluck has something to with the intern focus mechanism. Any
I also own an olympus c765 and was wondering how to use the manual focus option when I came across your post. Actually I have been wondering whether manual focus is of any use in an olympus c765 because the manual does not talk anything about it.
However, I just found out that there is a way of activating/deactivating manual focus. Here it goes:
1. Turn the camera on
2. Switch to any mode - portrait/landscape etc
3. Press and hold the 'OK' button on the centre for a second until you see a MF/AF option on the screen
4. Switch to MF and focus on any subject by pressing the up/down keys.
Most likely, your camera has been turned to Manual Focus option, which is why it is not focussing any more. Follow the steps above and turn it back to Auto Focus option and let me know if your problem gets solved.
