Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

Hi, I am trying to insert my Olympus xD picture card into my Olymous e510, but it won't click into place. So when I close the card cover, the camera just says "no card". How do I get the memory card to click into place? Thanks, Rebecca

Answers :

This is a hardware problem. Some minute components are not rightly joined or made. Thus the card is not fitting in the slot. Take the card to the manufacturers and also with the camera and insist them to fit it before you.\015\012Thank you, for futher queries, contact me.

Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again. If I click Yes, I get a Card Error message. I cannot take a photo. I am on a cross country trip, and don't have my manual, but I sure would like to be able to take pictures of the Rockies! I know the camera is old, but I love it. Please help me to get it working again. Thanks, Toni Sinclair

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year.
