Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera ?
Lense not retracting
\015 The lense will not retract when I attempt to shut the cover over my D-565 Camedia. I love this little camera and have had it nearly 8 years.. Any ideas? The batteries are new and I get the green and red light flashing a few times, before they go dark.\015
Does appear to be a power issue and needs repair

Panasonic DMC-TZ4 When I switch on I get "Turn off camera and turn on again" message but it does not good.

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so). It locked up and powered itself off. I tried turning it back on, and it turned on for a split second then shut off without retracting the lense. I switched batteries and it retracted the lense, but I tried powering it on and the lense only came halfway out and it powered off. I've tried 4 fresh sets of batteries a

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract. I am able to view all photos on the memory card as well as turn the camera on and off, however at each point when the lense should retract it stays fixed out. Can this be fixed?

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've
