Hello - My Olympus SP-550OUZ Camera was in a rucksack which slid of my shoulder and hit the ground. Although there is no obvious damage to it, nothing cracked, no marks etc., it has stopped seeing properly. Pictures already taken can still be viewed either in the viewfinder or the screen both work perfectly. The lens moves in and out not problem everything seems to work fine except when you look to take a picture either by viewfinder or the lcd screen all it sees is a blurry hazy purple pictu

Hi I have an Olympus 1050 SW which had been coping well with canyoning. ... until now. After the last canyon trip, the camera had severe condensation problems in the LCD screen and lens. I have dried the camera out with a hairdryer and used silica gel packets, which worked OK. But now when I point and shoot the camera it gives me streaks across the image. However, if I use the movie camera option, no streaks. I'm not quite sure what to do with the camera as it's past warranty and I'm reluctan
The fact that the streaks are present only when shooting stills confirm that the issue is not with the LCD display but with the imaging chip. The camera uses a different section of the imaging chip to record video with, so what's happened is that moi ... Digital Cameras
I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?
I found this camera available for purchase as brand new for $450. Spending nearly $300 to repair an older version may no be a wise choice. You may find there is a market for the camera in its current non-working condition on eBay.With that ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it fixable? I bought the Canon PowerShot A570 IS. I don't know if it is me or the camera but my LCD screen doesn't stay on. I can take a phote, the photo will then display on the LCD for 2 seconds BUT then the LCD goes blank, all i can see are the menu options. If I take a pic while LCD is blank my pic's
The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Dark LCD I have an A70, about a year old. The problem is the LCD screen is very dark. It is almost completely black unless I point the camera dirrectly at light. If I take a picture with the viewfinder the picture is exactly what the LCD screen looks like. This happened as we were using the camera. I also cannot view any of the pictures in the camera. I no the display is not completly out because it works to access the menu screen. It wasn't droped or anything. I can't find any setting to change

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?
