Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera ?

Dropped Camera Zoom Problem


\015 I was unpacking from a trip and I dropped my Olympus C-765 Ultra Zooom. Now when I turn it on the lens zooms all the way out. When I try to zoom now, I see a change but the lens stays fixed in the long position. However when I turn the camera off, the lens does retract so that I can put on the lens cap. Does anyone know if this is this something a novice can fix on her own?\015

Afraid not a novice or even an expert can fix this one.\015\012It will have to be a repair of the zoom mechanism.\015\012It will almost certainly be costly.\015\012Check your Olympus support site to see what your local repair options are.

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at all. I have researched this problem but have not had any luck finding a solution. Any suggestions?


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out.

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.
