Question about Olympus Stylus 760 Digital Camera
Lens does not retract error code 8234
It's a little tricky but with a small eyeglass screwdriver and some super glue you can do it. I had the problem, here is what you do. 1 romove the five screws two on bottom NOTE one of the bottom screws is longer than the rest. two on side one on other side. 2 gently remove housing, 3 then remove chrome ring that surrounds three sides of camera. 4 inside there are four screws remove them and separate camera. there is a small metal clip that came unglued you can see where it belongs you must gently turn the wheel till the retainer is all the way to the left away from wheel.the clip goes under the shaft use a little super glue to glue it back. the hardest part is the screen plug lift up black piece line it up and then lock the black piece down it took me about an hour and a half.even with my fat sausage fingers. if you shoot me an e-mail with your phone number i can walk you through it.

The photo and solution does work, but a clarification. The metal clip in the photo has to be BETWEEN the opaque plastic wheel/gear and the rectangular metal piece. The gear turns on threads inside the metal retangular piece, causing the metal piece to move back and forth along the threaded rod. The metal clip that becomes dislodged fits between the gear and the metal rectangle. when the motor moves, it pulls the clip (and objective) to the left. Simply turn the gear until the metal rectangle is to the RIGHT, then insert the clip behind the threaded rod and superglue back in place.
One other thing....if the ribbon connector from the back of the camera comes loose....it slides back into place pretty easy BUT there is a very thin dark locking bar that pushes down on top of the ribbon to hold it in place....make sure that is ok before closing it up.

I also glued the part that linhaserotic suggested and photographed, and it worked also for me!!!
I fixed also my camera!!!
I was confused by the phrase "turn the wheel till the retainer is all the way to the left away from wheel" from daddygmac9 . I think it is "to the right". But is is indeed all away from the wheel until the metal strip can be positoned without stress.
Again, many thanks.

Solution is a simple fix if you take your time and be careful.

Be careful though, there are very tiny and fragile parts inside the camera.

Looks like you should check back with the entry "the lense wont go back into the camera" ... it's the same problem.
The solution posted there explains what probably went wrong, but was complicated enough that you might want to bring the camera by a repair place anyway... I have the same problem with my camera too, and I'm printing out that error message and solution to take with me...
