Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera ?
C-50 will not turn on (shooting mode)
\015 Camera will not turn on and extend lense when cover is slid open. The moniter works fine and you can view all previous pictures. Problem was occuring occasionaly and camera still worked. Now it will not work at all. I have removed and recharged battery two times.\015\012The camera was purchased from Staples 12/2003. Any help would be appreciated!\015\012\015\012Thank you!\015\012\015\012Frank Draskovic\015
If it tries to move and fails, then you have a lens problem.\015\012Likely a crack (invisible to the naked eye) in the outer barrel.\015\012Usually lets the ball bearing fall out of it's groove between the\015\012two barrels. Rattles a little if you gently shake the camera. Almost certainly needs the lens assembly replaced.\015\012\015\012If it doesn't even try, but the rest of the camera operates normally, then I'd guess you're looking at the interconnection(s) between the mainboard and the lens motor(s). Connector pulled apart, cracked mainboard, or something.\015\012\015\012you say that "Now it will not work at all" If it doesn't even try and the rest of the camera is dead as a doornail, then perhaps the battery connections? Power board? \015\012\015\012It would help to know the history of the camera. Was it dropped, sat on, or at the beach? Was it working then suddenly stopped?\015\012I've worked on a lot of digital cameras. To determine the problem with the zoom, disassemble the camera down to the lens module. Try to isolate the extension-retraction circuit and drive the motor from an external source. Usually you'll find the lens has broken tracking tabs on the main group barrel or retrofocus converter group or the ways or guides have cracked. I recently repaired a Nikon 4100 that responded nicely because the guide elements just snapped back into place. Usually they snap and break off or are already broken off because most are plastic. Some older ones are aluminum and can be bent back into shape but that takes quite a lot of experience. Sometimes there's just a piece of grit in the ways and you can revive it by complete disassembly and cleaning. Otherwise you might be looking on eBay for a parts camera with a good lens or mainboard. \015\012\015\012Good luck
Plastic lower door track is broken allowing the door to lift disengaging the toggle under the door this toggle is what controls the lens opening.. Impossible to fix but I have designed a replacement piece of hardware that will fix it,I have started to maching a few and I intend to sell them on ebay my email is [email protected]

When camera gets turned on, the lens goes in and out of focus a few times and then screen turns blue and displays "D : 5f08 5e02" and does not go back to shooting pictures again. But for just looking at the pictures on the memory card, it works if turned on in that mode. If turned on in photo-shooting modes, it cannot be switched back to view photos. (OLYMPUS M700)

Canon xt When I try to shoot sports at night under lights I am having difficulty getting my camera in maunal mode without having bulb mode as well. How do I turn bulb off? I am setting my ISO at 1600 and pushing my f-stop as low as I can go, am I doing something wrong? It worked once for a recent football game but again last night shooting soccer could not get the bulb setting to turn off.
First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not con ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

LCD screen turns purple in shooting mode. Photos can be taken. Most are Ok, some slightly out of focus or faded coloration. If switched to play back mode and then back top shooting mode, display is Ok for a short time then degrades from top center in a V shape to a purple line display.

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine.

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

"busy" Error Yet another Canon 20D question. I have been shooting both film and digital at weddings for the last two weeks. I have been very impressed with the 20D (I shot Nikon for 22 years). However, I have had my share of camera errors on the 20D. Lately, it shuts down in the middle of shooting and the LCD panel reads "busy." The busy error does not go away when turning off the camera. At first I assumed that the buffer was maxed, but I'm only shooting in single shot mode. Eventually, after m

My camera is brand new, got it just last week. I tried using the S mode on the mode dial and tried shooting with the fastest shutter speed, but all pictures turned out to be blank/black. The same happened for the P, A and M mode. May I know if it's a problem with my settings or the camera?

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image
Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

I have a Canon Rebel XTi which seems to "lock up" ie will not allow a second picture to be taken after the first when used in "portrait" mode. I was shooting a wedding with it last week and sometimes it would do this and sometimes it was OK. Sometimes it would shoot three or four consequetive pictures. Only turning it off and then back on would start it again. Sometimes even this did not work for more than ten seconds Is this a fault? Why does it only happen sometimes? I'm not sure if it do
