Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera ?

Olympus Camedia D-565 Problem

\015 The problems began shortly after I purchased the camera. First the photo would freeze and I had to open and close the battery door to release it. As time progressed (and the warranty expired) the problem got worse. The photo would freeze and when I opened and closed the battery door the green lights would flash and camera would beep continuously. I would take the batteries out and they were very hot to touch and all of the power was drained...sometimes after taking just one photo. If I let the camera cool for 15 minutes and put in a fresh set of batteries, it would work for a while, then freeze, then hot drained batteries....then another 15 minutes of cool-down. Finally, a few months ago, the camera stopped working at all even after putting in new batteries. Now when I slide the lens cover over nothing happens. Then a minute or two later the green light near the viewfinder begins to flash and the camera beeps repeatedly. Sometimes both the green and amber lights flash and the camera beeps. This seems to be a common problem in the Camedia line of cameras. I check Ebay all the time and see these cameras being sold for parts or repair because of this same problem (no power or flashing lights but no power to operate). I called Olympus and they say it could be a capacitor problem. The camera takes magnificent photos...better than any of my friends more expensive, higher pixel cameras, so I would like to repair it, but don't want to spend the money if it is going to happen again and again. Any help would be appreciated.\015

I'm looking for a service or repair manual for Olympus C-7000 CAMEDIA. Problem: Keeping the shutter button pressed halfway is not possible anymore. Pressing this button, the camera focuses and immediately shoots a picture I think it's a hardware problem of the buttom itself and therefore I'd like to know how to open the case and how to fix the problem (by means of a repair manual).

Olympus Camedia 450 Zoom digital Camera has just started to keep showing card full after a couple of shots. The cards are 64Mb and are OK as I have checked them [3] on the PC with a disk/card program. I have also formated them both in the camera and also the PC under a FAT 16 basis. The two lights [red/green] also flash sometimes so changed batteries just to make sure that was not the problem. Any suggestions other than scrapping it? Cheers Peter
