Question about Olympus D-535 Zoom / C370 Zoom Digital Camera
Greetings, Fixya: I have been using a Camedia C-2100 for years with no trouble, and decided to also buy a C-370. Shortly after purchase, I traveled for a year,carrying the C-370. It NEVER worked, and I cannot now use the warranty - it's too late. Here's teh behavior. Put in new batteries. Turn on. Power lens extends, protector covers open, lens retracts, covers close. Green and orange lights blink a while and it shuts off. I have tried to hold combinations of buttons while turning on, sort of like some hidden code. To no avail. Camera ONLY does this one thing. Extends, retracts, shuts down. Camera has never been dropped or abused and is spotless. I have jeweler's screwdrivers and am technically proficient. Is there something I can check in the interior? A locking mechanism, perhaps? A sensor switch? Anything? Thanks very kindly - am truly angry and frustrated about this purchase this far... Regards - Carl Hurst
I have a FE-340, and when this happens, I do the low tech, old Atari technique of blowing in the battery well to get dust out, as well as making sure the contacts on the battery are clean. It seems to work.

Try to press the button several times or reverse the batterys.
I have A D-535 which does that sometimes

Excellent solution Bike Guy. Take into account that the post was made 6 months ago. If I were you I would focus on recent questions which would probably gain more attention. Best, D.

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.
