Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera ?
Olympus C-50 zoom
\015 Based on your post, my camera probably needs the lens assembly replaced. The lens sometimes will not extend when the cover is slid open. It does rattle when I shake it gently.Is the repair something I could do myself? Do you have any idea what the repair would cost? Would it be better to just replace the camera? I bought it in September 2003. I appreciate any advice you can give.\015
I have designed and produce on a limited basis a new slide/nut plate for the c-50 that is easy to install using existing screw. Just slide the old nutplate outand slide the new one in and attach screws solves the problem of the sliding door and the off/on switch behind the door ,I sell it for 25.00 +3.00 shipping

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help. Similar problem with SP-560UZ On power up lens clicks & sticks when zooms out. Then get "zoom error" & powers off. Tried new batteries, helping lens out. Leaving batteries out. Could not

Zoom will not go back when i power off, comes up zoom error My Olympus Stylus 830 does the same thing. Power it off, the zoom lens doesn't retract, and the camera won't fit in it's case. Power it back on, the zoom lens retracts briefly, and then expands again. I figure it's hosed. Any chance for a low cost fix?

When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.
We had this problem for about 2 weeks, we discovered that having the camera auto retracted after the "ZOOM ERROR" message, giving the camera couples of light slaps (slap the camera's LCD side and aim the camera down), this fixed the camera right away ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

Zoom problem I bought my SP350 Olympus in Dubai. My friend dreeped champagne in the lens, so I guess it glued the inner mechanisms. The problem is that sometimes it opens just fine, but when I start zooming it get stuck and beeps and the screen shows ZOOM PROBLEM or something like that, does anyone have a solution to that? Thanks in advance
Well you could bite the bullet and strip the camera down and douse the lens parts in alcohol (the real stuff from a chemist) but the lenses are really hard to put back together again. If you contact a guy named John at [email protected] He is a ... Olympus SP-350 Digital Camera
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?

My Olympus 740 digital camera does not auto focus any more. I can make it focus for the most part by zooming in, but is there anything I can do to make it start up focused? I had another Olympus camera model a few years ago that I had to send in to Olympus 3 times for the same problem.
Take it off manual focus? There may be an "all reset" option in one of the menus that makes the camera factory default whenever its turned on, usually this is full auto mode. If the camera will only focus when the zoom is used, there may be a seconda ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

Zoom my camera isnt an olympus FE - 230 digital camera, its a kodak M836, i can look at my pictures okay, but i cant take any, as when i turn it on to take a picture the lens goes out, and then back it and it switches off. it is nothing to do with the battery as i have charged it several times. - my dad thinks that it goes back in because there is some sand inside (as we recently went on a beach holiday) and that the sand is stopping the zoom from coming out all the way, so it goes back in, alth
