Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-725 Digital Camera ?
Sticky Zoom Control
\015 Once my camera warms up, the zoom control becomes sticky. After moving this control to the right or left, it should immediately move back to the centre position once released. It moves back too slowly resulting in the lens continuing to move in or out. In addition, the shutter button (part of the same control) sometimes sticks. I assume that something was spilled into the control at some time. I've removed the screws releasing the control but there is nothing obviously wrong to the naked eye.\015\012\015\012Before I take it in for a potentially costly repair, is there anything I can spray in the mechanism that may clear the problem but not harm the circuitry? \015\012\015\012Thanks in advance.\015\012\015\012Clark Martin\015

Zoom Control The zoom control has stopped working. In the Summer on holiday, I noticed that the zoom control was working only intermittently. It seemed to be making poor contact and I found that flicking it sometimes helped. Now it has ceased to work at all. Is there any way of cleaning the contacts or having a service carried out?

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS. The zoom lever is no longer function to the right. As in, the zoom lens still works but the zoom lever will not control it, I have confirmed this by attempting to use the zoom lever in the playback mode.

Zoom error The lens extends to maximum and motor keeps running when camera switched on, then lens retracts to about an inch then the screen says Zoom Error, also the zoom control doesn't work then. and there is no picture.

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black.

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

The optical zoom has stopped working on my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. It was working fine, but now moving the zoom control clock/anticlockwise does not move the lens at all. I've tried the "conversion" settings, and also done a complete reset of all settings via the menu, but it hasn't made any difference. All other functions are operating correctly.

I can't view my pictures or zoom out. The controls seem to be unreliable or non-functioning. But I can still take pictures and subsequently download them onto my computer. Do the internal contacts on some of the controls need cleaning?

I purchased my G11 end of Nov 2009, and just started to have problems this morning. When shooting, the directional buttons, control dial and func/set button won't work. Also, if I zoom in on a subject the camera automatically zooms out, in, and out again... randomly, as if it had a mind of its own. When viewing photos already taken, the same problem happens. Once it happens, none of the buttons will work. This happens about 1 minute after the camera has been switched on. Is there a way in which

Camera stalling The problems started after using my camera on a windy day at the beach 3weeks ago. After a few days, the lens started getting stuck, and wouldn't come out, or if it did, didn't focus properly. This problem was intermittent. Then, in the past several days, the camera systems stall when I switch it on. The lens comes out and zooms fully. but It will not respond to any of the control buttons.

I've had the 5700 since 2003, which at the the time I paid $1200 for it. E-Bay is now selling for a bid of $85. At any rate, I cannot manipulate the menu to make any settings. I have a flashing update icon for date & time, but cannot set. Also, the zoom control is unresponsive. I have no idea where to get an estimate for a repair & let's face it, the repair would probably cost more then what I can purcahse a new digital SLR camera for with more features than what I paid for the 5700.
