Question about Olympus SP-500 UZ Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zoom not working

The camera suffered a slight drop of 2 feet. Now the zoom does not work. Is this something I can fix myself? If not should I get it repaired or just get a new one? Thanks to all. Lee

If it´s under warranty, just send it to a repair centre they will fix it for free. anyway the lens will need to be replaced.
