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

Olympus C5050 I droped my C5050 camera, the zoom lever came away allowing the shutter button to fall out how do I fix the zoom lever back in place or if needed where can I buy a new zoom lever and how much would it cost

Answers :

That's a crying shame.  I believe that spares are no longer available for this unit (which is, IMHO, one of the very best prosumer digitals ever built).\015\012
\015\012Your best bets would be to take it to a local camera service center, or, to look on eBay for a used C5050 or C8080 (8MP with most of the same capabilities and some improvements, but, not quite as good an aperture) for a very reasonable price in good condition.\015\012
\015\012I know that's less than ideal, but, after a great deal of research on a similar problem with my C5050, that's where I ended up.

My Olympus u 750's telescopic zoom is jammed in the extended position. The cause seems to be the last segment of the zoom, containing the lens, which is not properly aligned with the other retractable zoom segments. I don't remember knocking the camera - not sure how this happened. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by gently forcing the crooked segment back into it proper place? Or if it has to be sent for repair, is it worth the trouble and cost?

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

If its only been 9 months since you bought it shouldn't it be covered for repair? espically if its a manufactures fault,which it sounds like. ... Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z612 and the lens won't retract. I've already tried tapping it on it's side to see if it helps and it doesn't. In order to have it fixed, Kodak wants me to send it in and it will cost me almost as much as it did to buy the camera. I need to know if there is a way I can fix it myself.

I'm trying to see how much it's going to cost to get my camera repaired and I need the serial number. I can't find the serial number ANYWHERE on my camera and I'm fearing that it might have been on the sticker that was located on the bottom of my camera. That sticker got torn off my camera a while back. Any other way I can figure out the serial number?

Yep, the sticker on the bottom did contain the serial number. For my m753, the Kodak website said they would repair for $60, or give 25% off of a purchase from their website (which has pretty good prices, actually). You will also notice that Kodak ... Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera

The shutter release button/manual zoom lever broke off when it was bumped accidently against a sharp metal corner. I still have the part. Can this part be refitted? replaced? It appears that very small fastenling points have been damanged. Does BenQ have a repair service?

But I have found the camera has worked exceptionally well for me and not happy parting with it. Any a

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

The zoom won't come out when I try to turn my camera on, it just turns a little bit, then turns back to the original place, and the screen says zoom error. I've tried different batteries, and taking out the memory card and putting it back in. The model is FujiFilm; FinePix A400. What should I do?

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. O ... Digital Cameras

Some master said that zoom lens motor was demagnetized. Need change motor. Is it true and is it possible to buy this motor from you and what could be price? thank you.

I would say to check the batteries and their connecting surfaces plus the contacts in the battery compartment. With bad connections on the batteries, when the camera zooms slowly it does not use much power. When zooming fast it uses more power (curre ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage
