Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera ?

ON/OFF switch fault

\015 Switching ON lens extends then retracts and continues to do so until switched OFF. This fault happened twice before under guarantee and was fixed and then in Jan 2005 it happened again just outside guarantee. Living in Cyprus and sending to and fro to the UK was expensive and a hassle so it went on the shelf until now. an expensive camera 550 UKP. When it was working it produced excellent results. Has any body any fixes ? I have tried to contact Olympus repair Dept twice but NO reply\015

If I switch off, and sitch to Playback, the small screen works OK and all the Playback works fine.

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely. That means any

From the start, the camera has been very heavy on batteries, both rechargaeble and non-rechargeable. I am told that this camera is known to have a fault. Is this so? As per my previous mail, when switching on I can access old photos, the shutter button does not depress, the screen goes blank and the camera switches off. I have changed batteries many times. Sometimes doing so gives me three or four more shots before it switches off again.

Camera locked Hi, I've got the blinking battery symbol when I switch on my K100D. I've tried switching to manual focus and leaving for a while with the batteries out, but still the same issue. It works ok with external power supply, so I uploaded ver 1.02 firmware to see if that would solve the issue but still the same fault. Is there anything else you can suggest I try? Thanks, Brian

I just bought an Alba SL 1231 digital camera from Argos. I charged the battery as per instructions and inserted into the camera.

My IXUS V2 has suddenly developed a serious fault. When I switch on, the digital display shows a confusing array of lines and colours, with the actual picture barely discernable. If I take a picture, it comes out as a confused image of colours and lines. The view through the optical viewfinder is fine so I imagine I have a serious electronic problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Err 02 When i switch on the camera the EOS appears on the lcd screen other than that it is blank. After a while an error 02 appears (CF card fault).

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

My Energizer N2120 rechargeable torch won't turn on unless I have just pulled out the recharge plug. Then it will turn off OK on the switch but won't turn on again... unless I plug the charger in and unplug it again. Maybe my torch has a fault with the clever (?) tech that turns the torch on if mains power fails during charging?
