Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

A thick blue horizontal line appeared in my LCD screen and won't go away. I can still take pictures and they print out fine, but how can I get rid of the blue line?

Answers :

This is probably a problem with your LCD monitor or the connections to it. Does the blue line show in all situations such as record, playback, and menu mode?\015\012
\015\012Test your monitor by plugging into your camera the TV cord that came with your camera. Connect to a TV and use it as a monitor when your camera is on. be sure to switch to the TV to channel three or video to get a picture. Check the different screen modes: record, play, and menu. If the blue line does not appear on the TV then there is damage to your monitor or its connections. My guess is you won't see the blue line on your TV since you get good prints. If you are on warranty, get it fixed. Otherwise, you have a choice between paying for a repair or living with it. Good luck.

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.

I have purple horizontal lines across my screen when i try to take a picture. When i snap the picture that is all i get. The memory card seems to be fine in that all the pix stored on it look fine when i check on the camera. What could be wrong? The only thing of note is that i had the memory card alone in my cold car for a few days . I tried putting a new memory card in the camera and that didn't change anything either with the purple horizontal lines.

My mom's hp officejet T45 printer now prints gibberish. It started after my sister installed a new ink cartridge for her. Because her documents were printing nothing but a solid black line then, my sister downloaded new software for her from the internet and then it starter printing gibberish. The ''test run'' that the printer does looks fine but any document that she tries to print comes out as gibberish.

Screen border On my Fuji S700, pictures used to fill the entire screen when i took and reviewed them. Now, my screen has black border lines on the top and bottom of the screen.

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but i
