Question about Olympus Stylus 810 Digital Camera
So like a couple of days ago .. i was hanging out with my friends .. we took a few pictures .. i accidently dropped onto the ground .. and it was on taking picture mode . Now it won't work . The lens are sticking out and when i turn it on .. it keep on going in and out .. it won't even let me take pictures .. anyone know how to fix this ??
I also dropped my camera while the lens was out. Obviously, I'm no camera expert but I fixed that problem using a metal nail file and GENTLY jimmying the left and right sides of the lens closest to the base. I did this with the knowledge that I likely going to throw out the camera anyway. I pushed the power button and voila! The lens retracted to its closed position; pressed the power again and it popped out like normal. With the camera on I was able to view a feathery black image. I powered off and tilted the camera against the light and saw a faint crack beneath the screen along the edge where the feathery image was. I'm now going to see if I can get a replacement part. Most camera stores I've checked want $180 just to look at it. If the part's too expensive I'll just toss the camera.

Mine did the same thing. The inside broke apart which is jamming the retracting part. Look in the lens and you can tell it is separated.

Hopefully someone has a better answer, but no mater what mode its in, its been my experience these cameras don't like to be dropped. Sometimes they can be repaired, its just a matter of finding someone who or return camera to factory for a repair.
