Zoom problem I bought my SP350 Olympus in Dubai. My friend dreeped champagne in the lens, so I guess it glued the inner mechanisms. The problem is that sometimes it opens just fine, but when I start zooming it get stuck and beeps and the screen shows ZOOM PROBLEM or something like that, does anyone have a solution to that? Thanks in advance

Well you could bite the bullet and strip the camera down and douse the lens parts in alcohol (the real stuff from a chemist) but the lenses are really hard to put back together again. If you contact a guy named John at [email protected] He is an ex Olympus tech and he may be able to help you. He's sure helped me out in the past. BMW

Olympus 8080 C 8080 wide zoom

It may have jumped a tooth, something like a car timing chain. The Zoom in this camera is a barrel that has 3 cams that rides inside another barrel that has "tracks" for the cams. The motor rotates the the outer barrel via gear teeth, forcing the inner barrel to extend or retract. There is a tab on the gear teeth that might index the position of the zoom lens. If this tab is in the wrong position, if the gear jumped a few teeth, the camera may not know where the zoom lens is in relation to the inner focusing lens, and cause the "zoom error" If that is the case, I can help you get it back into position. This is a theory, but does explain the tab on the gear and the constant zooming.

Zoom Error

We had this problem for about 2 weeks, we discovered that having the camera auto retracted after the "ZOOM ERROR" message, giving the camera couples of light slaps (slap the camera's LCD side and aim the camera down), this fixed the camera right away

Dropped Camera Zoom Problem

Afraid not a novice or even an expert can fix this one. It will have to be a repair of the zoom mechanism. It will almost certainly be costly. Check your Olympus support site to see what your local repair options are.

Zoom lens problem

Most often these problems occur because of shocks received by the camera. The zoom mechanism in the lens assembly gets knocked out of place. Sometimes this happens just like that, without any clear reason. The lens assembly is a delicate mechanism if one small part gets out of the place it will damage or jam the whole mechanism. A service center can check for that. There is no way for the end user to proper realign the lens mechanism because it is sooo small. It requires specialised tools and hardware. Also, when you take the camera to a service, ask them an estimate of the repair, you will know if it is worth it. Repairs vary form a simple lens adjustment to the need of having the whole lens assembly replaced
