It sounds like the issue you are experiencing with your Olympus MJU II camera is related to the cover not closing properly. This can cause problems with the lens retracting, which can lead to damage to the camera. Here are a few suggestions to fix the problem:

  1. Clean the cover and camera body: Dust and debris can accumulate on the cover and camera body, making it difficult for the cover to close properly. Use a soft brush or microfiber cloth to gently clean the cover and camera body.
  2. Check the cover's alignment: Make sure that the cover is properly aligned with the camera body. If it is off-center, it may not close properly.
  3. Check the cover's hinge: If the cover's hinge is bent or damaged, it may not close properly. Inspect the hinge and see if it needs to be adjusted or replaced.
  4. Check the lens mechanism: Make sure that the lens mechanism is clean and free of debris. Dust and debris can accumulate on the lens mechanism, causing it to malfunction.
  5. Have a professional take a look: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may be best to take the camera to a professional for repair. They will be able to diagnose and fix the issue, or tell you if a repair is needed.
It's important to keep in mind that the Olympus MJU II is a film camera, and it's not manufactured anymore, so it's harder to find replacement parts. It's recommendable to have a professional check the camera before using it, to prevent further damage.

If you're careful this problem is a relatively easy fix for many digital cameras. The design of the lens cover mechanism is usually simple and very similar throughout camera brands. Here's an example fix for a Canon A400 with similar problems:

You may have the same problem that i had. It does involve taking the camera apart. Not overly difficult - just fiddly.
Let me know and i'll talk you thro' it

Hello Jakub,
As you might already know that you are not the only one who is getting this error.. there are thousands of others with you .. If that makes you happy :D
This code is a troubleshooting service code for "malfunction of focus motor/sensor". It is a motor/sensor issue and is normally caused by sand or dirt in the lens cover mechanism. Try to turn on camera while holding it with the lens pointing up.
You might even try hitting the camera on your palm in that position (by hitting, i don't mean a real HIT .. be sure that you are gentle not to break the camera).
If that doesn't work then try this... when the lens is trying to come out and cannot come out completely then you can assist the lens by pulling it out manually (once again, understand that its a delicate camera and I don't want you to show how powerful you are by pulling it with all your mighty vigor.. be hard and gentle at the same time .. I hope you understand what i mean)

Please let me know if any of the above steps work for you and do rate the solution :)
All the best.

Regards,
Srinivas

My mju ii cover will not close easily and it seems to be causing problems when the lens retracts how can this be fixed?

Hi

Check there is no dust or dirt that is stopping the lens mechanism retracting the lens properly (which is then interfering with the cover closing). You should also try and check if the cover is aligned properly. If it has been dropped or knocked it can sometimes move them out of position and this can then stop them closing properly.

We hope this helps to get the camera working properly once more.

LENS OPENING BUT NOT SHUTTING

Hi,

Its seems lens got stuck in the barrel due to external shock caused, Try out following steps-

  • If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move once's or twice then it will stuck again.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.


Else contact Olympus, your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center .

I hope this will solve your problem

Thanks..!!

When opening lens barrier camera will not switch on.

The problem you are describing is a problem with the sensor that is behind the sliding lens cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

I have a olympus 400 mju camera i cannot seem to get the lens back in to close the cover now i have fitted a new battery

This normally happens when dirt or dust particles get caught between the lens segments. Check for this. If you can't do it yourself, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

Lens will not come out of camera

There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.

MJU 300

Ian, It's not a solution I'm afraid, but I have the exact same problem as you had. What's worse, I followed the exact same methodology as you did and now my camera doesn't work either. Unlike you though, I own it, so have nobody to answer to. Wondering how you got on with yours? Did you find a fix, or take it to a repair shop in the end? Sean
