The camera will not focus so all pictures are blurry. The camera was dropped in the sand and i think the lens may be scratched. Is there anyway to remove the lens to check?

I have a Samsung L201. I dropped my camera today (lens down) on sand, and now the lens won't go back it. Every time i turn it on it sounds a distinct 4x buzz sound, followed by a pause and then 3 beep sounds, followed by another 4x buzz sounds. There is no sand noticeable anywhere in the mechanism and was picked up as soon as it was dropped. Can I do anything to reset it myself? Please help. Thank you :)

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera. It worked fine until the next day and the lens opened and stuck. I opened the case to remove and sand that entered the camera. While removing the flash it went off and now the camera doesn't even turn on. I assume something touched and blew a fuse. Is this fixable and if so where do I start?

GDay, I have a black spot in my image. I previously dropped the camera in the sand. Sand had blocked up the opening shutter. I have since tried to remove the sand in the opening mechanism. Any ideas about the black spot? And how to remove it. Many thanks

I would be hesitant about cleaning it out yourself. If you use canned air, then you may make the problem worse by blowing sand deeper into the works. If you disassemble, critical alignment of the lense may be lost.Take the camera to a W ... Olympus Camedia Brio D-100 Digital Camera

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening.

Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera
