Question about Olympus MJU 400 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Frozen Lens I just dropped poor camera on to the carpet from about a foot! Everything seems to work except the shooting mode, the lens wont extend from the actual camera. The slider still goes across fully and the battery is in fine. I can go into quick view mode and still change settings etc. Is this likely to be expensive to fix?

    yes I have the same issue, I assume it maybe linked to the small microswitch situated behind the lens cover. I was hoping it was just due to dust or dirt but no. Can anyone provide any insight into fixing this problem???

I initially went back to the manufacturer - Olympus at [email protected] found on the website www.olympus.co.uk.

They responded with an offer to repair the camera even though it was out of warranty. they requested me to send it off to them at the following address, where they would evaluate and quote for the repair work.

Olympus Service Department
PO Box 2288
Watford
Herts
WD18 1JS
Alternatively, I could try to source the spare parts or an estimate for repair from Luton Cameras on 01582 458 323.

Hope this helps.

Was dropped. Now will do everything EXCEPT take photos. Lens, display, flash, etc. etc. all work fine. Just no screen image or photo when in "shoot" mode.


Sounds like the CCD or a stuck shutter blade. Try this place: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only service Canons and they are the only place we recommend for the Canons. It's all they work on and they are about half the price of most shops, plus the work is just excellent through them.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

SHADOW SPOT ON CANON SD1100 DIGITAL CAMERA SCREEN THAT COMES OUT ON PICTURES


The spot is actually on your camera lens. Try taking the battery out while you are in the shooting mode(lens extended) then clean the lens with a lens cleaner and that should solve your problem.
