Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Orange LCD When I turn on the camera the LCD on the back of the camera is very orange to red in color, but I can see the display, menus, etc. After a few minutes everything seems fine. Is this a bad LCD or just a common issue with this model? If it is a problem will it get worse?

Answers :

Could well be a bad backlight. There are replacement LCD assemblies on Ebay for under $45, and as a good working 5050 is worth $200 or so, it's worth doing.

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?

1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

Intermittent problem The camera works fine for awhile then the 4-way selector suddenly will not change the menu. Or it gets stuck on full flash or no flash. The selections may get mixed up. The review won't activate except for the last shot sometimes. Then if you leave the camera for a couple of days it seems to fix itself. Everything is fine then suddenly all the troubles come back.

I have a Nikon S6 digital camera, everything about the camera seems to work fine, except for this "lens error" message I keep getting. Sometimes I'll turn it on, and I can use it just fine.

The camera was working fine. I imported the pictures to Picassa succesfully and turned the camera off. I then went to take new pictures and all I get is a black LCD screen and when I load into Picassa the pictures are all black. The camera seems to work well, zoom, flash menu all seem normal except there is no picture. Can it be fixed and would it be cost effective?

The CCD is bad or the Iris is shut stuck. If it's the Iris just stuck, it might just have moisture - leave the camera in a dry place for a day. If it's the CCD - pretty much "kiss-it-good-bye". To replace the CCD is expensive - get a new camera. ... Digital Cameras

Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.  Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken.

No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
