View Full Version : D-380 lens malfunctioning

10-16-2005, 03:32 PM
My D-380 camera is 2-3 years old and worked fine until quite recently, when the lens stopped working (at least I think it's a problem with the lens). Photos already on the memory card display fine, but when I start the camera in shooting mode, the display screen is dark with wavy lines and nothing resembling the subject of the photo. When I point the lens at a direct light source the screen takes on a greenish hue at those areas; otherwise the saved photo is completely black.

I already tried changing the batteries and cleaning the lens, neither of which worked. I was hoping someone here could offer "quick fix" suggestions that wouldn't require getting the camera repaired. As old and obsolete as this model is (olympus doesn't even manufacture 2.0 megapixel cameras anymore!), it makes more sense to replace it than try to get it repaired, so you folks are my last hope. Is there anything I can do to save my camera?
