Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Stopped working I've had a Olympus D-360L for several years. Have never had a problem until today. When I open the lens cover the green light keeps blinking and won't stop.Nothing happens when I push the shutter release. The LCD monitor works. I deleted some pictures and downloaded others to my PC this am. When I went to use it later in the day the above problem occured. At present there are only 4 pictures on the card. I've put in new batteries, nothing changed. Can you advise me as to what might be wrong? Thank you!

    Yes, that is similar to my problem. The lense will not retract when I try to close the cover.

Check the cover and make sure the switch is making good contact... also if the cover is loose... tighten up the screws

Regrding Olympus Stylus 500.. When turned on the lens cover opens half way twice then closes with a green flashing light and beeping sound.


Have just solved similar problem with mine. Problem turned out to be that the lens cover was very slightly dented in. It didn't really look dented at all, but just wasn't quite symmetrical and was a bit more recessed on the side away from the shutter button. This was causing it to rub on the case when it tried to slide. (Mine had been not sliding completely shut for a while before it stopped opening properly too).

To fix it I undid two small cross head screws which let the front panel be prised off. On mine, with the front panel off, the lens and lens cover mechanism all worked perfectly, as the problem was that the lens cover was rubbing on the front panel. If yours is still broken with the front panel removed, then your problem is not the same as mine...

I used a small screwdriver to push out the metal bar on which the top of the lens cover slides, pushing on the right hand end of the bar to slide it left and out through the USB connector compartment door. That lets the top of the cover come off the bar and move freely. To take the cover off, it has to be detached from the arm which moves it. There is a pivot trapped in a slot in the arm, but once the cover is off the bar at the top, it can be moved down so that the pivot reaches the bigger hole at the bottom end of the slot in the arm. This lets the whole lens cover come off the camera.

I then used a screwdriver to gently push out the middle of the cover until its shape was more symmetrical. (I'm not sure a screwdriver was ideal for this, as there are now tiny lumps in the cover where I was pushing it).

Putting it back together was the reverse of taking it apart, although you can test whether it's fixed or not before doing up the screws holding the front panel on.

When I open the shutter door on the front it does not seem to switch on - the battery is charged - the green and orange light on the back flash and beep ???


2 thoughts. 1, with both green and orange lights flashing the manual indicates that that means that the battery is not charged. This site provided an answer to a similar question that suggested cleaning around the battery area [see Bill BS answer to Wendy]. 2, To you and Wendy, I had a similar problem and a call to Olympus suggested the likely problem was not battery related. When you open the slide, and if you press down on the cover, around where the "s" on olympus appears, that keeps the lens extended. Don't know why that is, or how to permanently fix, but it seemed to work.

Camera does not start up until after several


If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Camera turns on beeps turns off


Hi there. Turn on. Before it beeps, take the battery's out. This may take some practice. Now us a Qtip almost soaked in rubbing alcohol and clean the outside edges of the lenses. Put battery's back in and cycle the camera on and off. I hope this works for you. It worked for me.
Thanks

Lens stuck


I had an Olympus 725 which I bought in Dec 06, this xmas I went home to see my family in Ireland (I live in Australia) and stopped in Thailand on the way back, the camera broke when I was snorkeling, 4 days out of Warranty!!!! Same issues as you guys had. When I got back on the 16th Jan I brought it back to the shop, the guy told me my best bet would be to get onto Olympus directly and explain the situation. I did and they told me to send it in. I wrote a letter of complaint and sent it in with the camera (I also had problems with my XD corrupting itself, and I lost a lot of pic's). Yesterday when I came in from work there was note in my letterbox from Australia airmail saying they had tried to deliver a package to me but there was nobody home. Just found out awhile ago it's a new camera, a 795:) so I'm well happy. Will buy an extended warranty aswell tho, just in case. Sooo my advice is to deal directly with Olympus and not with any shops or agents.

Several problems


I am having the same problem. I think it might have to do with the memory card being corrupted. I am going to buy another one on ebay and go from there. If anyone knows what is going on with this please post it. Thanks.

Olympus C-370 LENS GOES OUT, IN AND SHUTS OFF


It is possible that a flexible circuit connector has loosened. This can be checked by removing the covers, DISCHARGING THE CAPACITOR. (The large, black, cylinder beside the lens.) Remove the black Phillips screws holding the LCD and main circuit board and then carefully lifting the circuit and checking the large connector on the back of the main circuit. BE CAREFUL! It is easy to break the flex. The other, most likely cause is the failure of the Photo Interrupter in the lens. The only solution is to replace the lens and reprogram the camera.
