Camera does not start up until after several

\015 Have an Olympus u-mini DIGITAL S Camera. It does not start up until after several switch ons. Lens keeps retracting several times until eventually view screen data comes up and camera then works fine!\015

Answers :

If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances\015\012are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the\015\012sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Pincushion distortion I've actually had this camera for about 2.5 years now, so presume well out of warranty, but I realise by looking back at my photos that the problem may have been there from the start.

The wide-telephoto lever and the shutter are sticking. this just started after a cruise in the Caribbean where on one occasion the lens and view finder fogged up when I passed through a pool area on the ship. the other problem I'm having is getting it to focus on the correct subject like closeup of flowers which it wouldn't do.
