Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ?

C8080 acting weired

\015 My C8080 camera came back after 6 months being with my\015\012sister in law. I clicked couple of snaps\015\012at the airport on arrival and it was fine. Later I recharged my batteries and\015\012found the camera acting weird. The camera now has a life of its own\342\200\246the control\015\012sometimes work sometimes not. At night I can heard the camera switching on and zooming on its own\342\200\246at\015\012times it work as if nothing has gone wrong, but most of the time it has become\015\012unpredictable- the zoom, the mode dial, power switch\342\200\246everything has gone\015\012haywire. I tried a factory reset- worked for half hour then back to same\015\012situation\342\200\246.I am afraid to update the firmware, since the power is not predictable\015\012sometimes switches off automatically\342\200\246.any idea????\015

Answers :

The mode dial switch, zoom and power are all on the same ribbon cable. If you can spray some electrical contact cleaner into the crease of the mode dial, power button and zoom lever, it may be enough to get thing going again. I would try this with the camera inverted to reduce the spread of the cleaner. The upgrade process takes about 35 seconds. Make a file called firmware on your memory card, download the .bin file into the firmware folder and turn on the camera in play mode. The current version of the firmware will appear and an OK, press "OK" and the firmware will start to update. Do this after a factory reset as you stated that it was stable for 30 minutes. Good luck. Contact me pishta68 at hotmail dot com if you have any questions. I have 2 and a "half" of these cameras. I think the most current firmware is v757-78

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?


Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
