Hello:\n\nI have a C5050Z, my first digital. Aside from the zoom motor,\nwhich is clunky and a little jerky, I very much like the versatility\nof it all.\n\nBut, after 18 mos, it will not hold a charge between battery changes,\nand the clock and pic mode resets. This is a pain, but not fatal.\n\nI got it at Best Buy, and they sold me a warranty. I've heard\nHORRIBLE things about the way Best Buy handles warranties, and I've\nasked them where the camera might go for repair. The best they will\ntell me is "to get repaired". Inquiries about "authorized Olympus\nService Center" get me "all of our repair people are competent - we\ntry to fix it here, and if it don't work, we 'send it off' ".\n\nI really don't want a HS grad digging in my cam with his Swiss Army\nKnife.\n\nWhat would you guys do? Ignore the bad capacitor, and just have fun?\n\nThanks,\n\n\nA.
