Shutter release inoperative

The "button" is actually just a plastic extension for the actual switch on the printed circuit board. You will have to dismantle the camera to gain access to the board and then use a DMM to test the switch contacts.

Adjust shutter speed

On most indoor shots the shutter speed will normally be 1/30 if you need or want it to be faster than that the only way to do that with this camera is to set the ISO to a higher value. Page 29 of your user manual explains how to set the ISO value for the camera to allow for faster shutter speeds.

A) Please refrain from shouting, it is considered aggressive and impolite.
B) This will need professional attention, which will probably be more expensive than purchasing a replacement camera.

Olympus mju zoom 140 35mm camera. shutter has started clicking as if taking when zooming (in or out)even when not pressing the shutter button...?

This is like to be the zoom motor playing up.
If the camera is new[1 year or less] return it.
A repair is not a likely option.

The camera turns on when viewing pictures, but when you switch it to take a photo, the lense adjusts and then turns of

I have heard that if you accidently nudge the shutter button it will cause shutdown

Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing

I had this happen and fixed it by removing the battery and leaving it out overnight and making sure it was fully charged - the next day battery inserted and it was ok. Prior to inserting battery I opened shutter cover and help down shutter release to try to drain any residual power. - Worth a try.

Digital camera quite working

Check out the pins in the base of the card chamber- are any missing or bent? Next check out Mirror action- is it working? Try to get onto the Olympus Tech Support team. If it is broken I think a repair will not be an option- the cost if possible will be well on the way to the next camera This is my camera too - lovely under rated beasts

MJU 300

Ian, It's not a solution I'm afraid, but I have the exact same problem as you had. What's worse, I followed the exact same methodology as you did and now my camera doesn't work either. Unlike you though, I own it, so have nobody to answer to. Wondering how you got on with yours? Did you find a fix, or take it to a repair shop in the end? Sean
