Question about Olympus Camedia C-725 Digital Camera

Zoom Won't Work

I have an ultra-zoom C-725, optical zoom 8X. The zoom has stopped working, the lever moves slightly to the right, but nothing changes. It is stuck on wide. The rest of the camera seems to be working fine, and photos taken this way are fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Zoom lever (Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ) does not work

If you can get to the ribbon cable that the zoom lever is attached to, you can use a multimeter or a continuity tester to see if the lever is actually shorting any traces on the ribbon. the zoom lever acts upon a motor that rotates the iner lens barrel, possible the motor lead is open or the switch under the lever is dirty/faulty.

Canon SD550 Digital Zoom Not Working

Digital Zoom is best ignored in any camera it simply blows up a section of an image already taken, You can do that far better with an image editor in the computer. As for the Optical Zoom - it does indeed seem to be repair time- As it is only a year and half old- may be Canin will be sympathetic and offer a cheap swap out.
