My Olympus will not turn on anymore
\015 My Olympus model #: C-765 Ultra Zoom will not turn on. The lens only moves about 1/2 inch when the power button is pressed and then the battery needs a new charge but after charging it still only will move the lens 1/2 inch. Nothing comes on the screen. I tried a new battery with the same result. The day before this started it worked fine.\015
I think your camera zoom has a dust or sand inside. it cant fully out. stop on/off your camera. bring it to service center.

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.
My camera is doing the same thing... i will let me view pix but not take them =( loved the camera took it to maui and even went cliff diving with it.. worked fine until one day i took it snorkeling and a little water got in. worked for a while after ... Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera

Shutter Problem I have an Olympus C-750 that I was in love with until 5 days before my vacation when the shutter button decided to stop working. Zoom in and out still works, but the shutter will not respond to the button or the remote. The other strange symptom is when I turn the camera on, it snaps a picture (and then won't take anymore). Thought I might have managed to put it in a certain mode or hit some magic series of buttons to put it in this strange mode, but I can't undo it. Tried changi

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

The camrea turns on but will not take a picture. the card is not full. you can use all the buttons when you first turn it on but then when you try to take a picture it will not take one and then you can not use the buttons anymore. If I shut the camera off and turn it back on I can use the menu buttons again. When I turn on the camera the red button by the view finder blinks three times.
Try this...the next time all the buttons work, go into the menu and search for "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. ... Pentax Optio 330 Digital Camera
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.
