Having problems with your Olympus Camedia Brio D-100 Digital Camera ?

How do I get sand out of my OlympusFE-100? Dropped it in the sand now it won't turn on. When it tries to turn on the zoom just goes out and in several times and then it shuts down. I am hoping that I can clean out the sand somehow.

Answers :

I would be hesitant about cleaning it out yourself. If you use canned air, then you may make the problem worse by blowing sand deeper into the works. If you disassemble, critical alignment of the lense may be lost.

Take the camera to a Wolf's or similar, and see what they can do for you.

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.

If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

My Sony DSC-W80 camera displays "Turn the power off and on again" after the lens make several efforts to protrude fully. The last time I used this camera, I was under the impression the battery had died, and indeed, it was rather low. But now the battery has fully charged and it will not work. I did not bang the camera on anything or drop it. The camera case for it is kept clean of dirt, sand, etc. There is no visible debris on the visual lens themselves that I can see in the few attempts it

I have a FE4010 camera. Whenever I try and turn on the camera, the lens barrel comes in and out 3 times and then retracts and the camera shuts off. I assume it is sand because after using it in somewhat sandy conditions this happened. I've tried tapping and twisting when I can hold the lens and stop it from retracting, but nothing works. Any ideas besides taking it apart?

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens. I turned it on and the lens closed and then opened again and wouldn't focus. I turned it off and the lens won't shut. How weird is that? It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

I took several pictures this morning. Then I plugged the camera into the cradle and pressed USB port and connected the line from the cradle to the computer, an operation I have completed numerous times. This time nothing happened. No "import" showed up. I looked at help in iPhoto. It said to turn on the camera. I tried, but it would not turn on. I took it off the cradle and tried many times. No luck. Have I somehow accidentally locked the camera? Does it even have a lock feature?

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again.
