    Press power on button. Green LED lights. Lens cover opens and lens cycles corectly then shuts down! The camera then repeats the above but the lens this time does not focus correctly and the camera shuts down, displaying D: 5F02 5E02 5F02 5E02. Green LED stays lit. Leave the camera alone and it will eventually power down. Frustration. I've tried the 'impact engineering' approach of Birta and it works!!!!!

That´s rigth. I was watching what was happening with the lens facing up, and then.... it works....
That´s the only way I can switch it on.

But this don´t fix the problem, simply let it switch on.

Ive looked all over the internet for a solution to this very common problem. This is the only one that worked for me. When you turn on the camera the green led light comes on. Hold the camera in your right hand while you turn it on and as the lense comes out, bang the camera (lens facing down)against your left palm repeatedly until you notice the led light briefly turn red then green again. You need to do this every time you turn it on.I think shaking it loosens the jarred lens. This was the only solution I could find and although I was tentative about doing more damage this way, I tried it and it works.

SAMSUNG PRINTER CLP-15. The paper prints half way the stops with a steady yellow light and blinking green light. I can get it to finish printing if I turn it off and then on.

Hi,
Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

Please try to remove toner cartridge first . Next shake it properly to have the ink distributed evenly . Next plug in and make give a self test print. If it still gives you the error lights with half page printouts then for sure you need to change new toner cartridge to make sure that the problem is not with printer itself. .

Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

My camera wont turn on when i try the amber light flashes and it makes 3 beeps then nothing the batterys full but iam able to load pics on the computer by plugging the cable in

The 3 beeps probably means your lens has failed.
I would guess the lens extends only about half way.

I was quoted $US80 for replacement.

I shall probably give it to my 2 year old as a toy and save up for a better camera.

Olympus u-mini 5.0 megapixel - no picture

YES - I had the same problem, sent it to Olympus the repair would cost £128.89. I told them to STUFF it. My advice is buy NIKON. Olympus had the audacity to say "the electronic system requires attention" - as if I needed an engineer to tell me that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Olympus FE 270 Digital camera lens, screen, etc not working

Hi!
Hi!
The focus is stuck. Could be sand, dirt or something in the focus gears - well known problem for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at [email protected] and I will give you a good price.

Camera keeps turning itself off when I turn it on.

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor in the lens assembly. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $93 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.
