Lens won't come out

I have an olympus stylus and when I slide open the lens barrier the lens is supposed to come out. It stopped doing this and for awhile I could get it to come out by pressing quickview but it would go in and out while taking photos, and now I can't take photos at all but I can view the photos that are already on there. I'm also wondering since it's out of warrany approximately what it may cost to have this sort of problem fixed.

It sounds like the sensor that tells the camera weather the cover is open or closed has failed or come loose. This is a fairly common issue on cameras with the sliding lens covers. Our shop would charge around $50 in labor to fix this issue if it is that sensor. If a part was required it would be somewhere between $20 and $50 depending on what Olympus charges for the part. Cannot speak to what other shops may charge. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I had a problem with my Mu300. The Lens woudl stay out and would not retract. Battery in and out would not solve the problem - it would jst try to extend the lens further then beep a number of times and shut down. Solution - gave it a few whacks with the handle of a screwdriver - and hey presto??? Hoes that for an engineers touch. PS - no liability is accepted for damage resulting from following this precise and difficult procedure.

Camera turns on then immediately turns off

Quick turnoff is normally a symptom of low battery power. Make sure that you have fresh/charged batteries in the camera. If fresh power doesn't solve the problem you will need professional service on the camera.

Lens won't deploy

The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor behind the lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

How to view

There are two ways to view the photos, in the camera...

1) if the camera is OFF and the lens barrier is closed, just press the Play (>) button once to view the photos.
2) If the camera is in SHOOTING mode with the lens barrier open, press the Quick View button twice in rapid succession.

When you are done reviewing the pictures, press the Quick View button once to turn the monitor off, OR, to return to the shooting mode, press the shutter button halfway.

Then use the arrow pads to go forward and backward.

Hope this helps.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
