Having problems with your Olympus MJU 400 Digital Camera ?

Frozen Lens I just dropped poor camera on to the carpet from about a foot! Everything seems to work except the shooting mode, the lens wont extend from the actual camera. The slider still goes across fully and the battery is in fine. I can go into quick view mode and still change settings etc. Is this likely to be expensive to fix?


Answers :

I initially went back to the manufacturer - Olympus at [email protected] found on the website www.olympus.co.uk.

They responded with an offer to repair the camera even though it was out of warranty. they requested me to send it off to them at the following address, where they would evaluate and quote for the repair work.

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

The problem is\015\0121- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera

I recently used my 860G on a diving trip to Roatan. After shooting some terrestrial pictures (outside the housing), I shut the camera off.

The battery is fully charged (I've tried several). The picture viewing mode works fine...the camera just refuses to enter the picture taking mode. Any help out t

I have a canon poershot A85 with error E18. It was working fine until I switched off for a few minutes. When it was switched back on, the lens stopped halfway and the camera "locked up". On putting new batteries in, I have got the lens fully out, but it is now stuck there and I'm still getting the E18. Any suggestions?

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

There's not much you can do about the problem because the problem is inside the camera. A faulty component is probably the cause. (I think its receiving more or less that the needed amount of power so that's the error with compatibility)If stil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing. Any photos I now take appear with mutiple fine white streaks across them. Curiously, when I shoot in video mode the footage appears completely unaffected. Is this something that I can fix myself - is it just a question of taking the camera apart, then cleaning the inside with care? Or would the lens housing now to be replaced?


This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera ... Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

Dead battery? I have been searching everywhere for help on this problem and so far, no luck! My camera will turn on but as soon as it does, it shuts itself off again. The lens is stuck in zoom mode and won't retract. I tried charging the battery but every time I try, it will only charge for about 5 minutes and then says the charge is full. Is this a problem with the battery? Charger? Or is the battery fine and it's a problem with the camera? Any suggestions?


Ugh. I have the EXACT same problem!!!!! It's extreamly annoying. When I turn my camera on it turns on, you see the polaroid screen, and theres this buzzing sound? and then it turns off. I'm so frustrated and don't know what to do. Should I take it in ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly. I don't know if the fault is with the charger or the battery. I'm still just about covered with the 6 month warranty, but im just wondering if this is a common problem. Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?
