We Got Inside
Digital Olympus E20
Problem: Black viefinder and you can see nothing, when you press
the button to take the photo the sound "click" it is there
but no picture at all when you try to review.
What we got inside:
First of all, we checked the camera and found that this was working
well, except for the shutter, that kept closed after turn the camera
It was required a major strip down to reach the shutter, located
inside of the zoom lens, in a deep place.
Once shutter removed we got worn shutter
blades due to the excessive magnet attraction.
Solution: Our engineer suggested
inserting a SMD resistor (4,3 Ohm) in order to solve the problem.
This resistor reduced the quantity of energy that reaches the magnet,
just enough to avoid the blow that "hurts" the shutter
The dangerous moment: Taking
apart the motherboard is the tensional time, due to the amount of
connections and others.
The tricky moment: Disassembling
and reassembling the zoom lens
No secondary problems has been observed.
Our question is: Is this this problem
related to all Olympus E20?
More in the future...
