Connection Problem My Olympus D-560 would lock when I tried to connect it to my PC, a Compaq Presario 6000 about a year old. Since the camera was brand new, I suspected the computer and spent many frustrating hours uninstalling this and reinstalling that. Finally, I sent the camera back and Olympus did a firmware upgrade, which fixed the problem. Then I stumbled across a post on another board that said that the Oly has problems with AMD processors. Has anyone else had compatiblity problems wi

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone! I send it to the Olympus repair for three times now, but they tell me every time that there's nothing wrong with the camera. Is this a known problem??

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

I have a new Nikon D-60. Using Windows XP, I downloaded 255 pictures. Not having picked a folder to put them in, it by default put them all in My Pictures. I then created a folder to put them in and using the "move" command, I moved all the pictures into the new folder. My problem is now it will not let me open the folder. It says, "access denied" It also shows when you hover the mouse over the folder that the contents are 0 bytes. It will not let me delete the folder either, so I am stumped. U

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.


On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

3040 Issues I just got a 3040 and had a question about a couple of things I noticed (I've never owned an Olympus digital camera). When the camera is powered up, the noise from the lens coming out sounds awful (like a grinding noise). Is this normal? It zooms in/out without any problems but it just sounds odd. It just doesn't sound smooth... Is a stuck pixel on the LCD enough of a reason to return it for a new one? The pictures do not show the stuck pixel but I am concerned that a new and e

Charging problems I have recently bought a new ac adapter for my olympus stylus 600 and when i plug it in to charge it the camera will turn on and i can use it but it doesn't charge the battery.

The AC adapter is only used as an alternate power source for the camera. It is not intended to charge the battery for the camera in any way. In order to charge the camera's lithium battery you will need the charger that is designed for that battery ... Olympus Stylus 600 Digital Camera
