My Olympus FE-4000 camera lens got jammed when it was dropped on the hardwood floor. The camera turns on, but the lens will not move, it just stays crooked and clicks when it automatically tries to adjust. When I turn the camera on, nothing shows except the "Olympus" on-screen. It won't even allow me to plug it into my computer to retrieve the photos on the memory card

My son got a vivitar vs18b camera. The packaging says Mac compatible but when we put the image zone disk in nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the 2 files after opening the disk icon and nothing happens. I tried the Vivitar Website and found no solutions. One spot had to download the "experience software". I got a link to a blank page. Any ideas how to get the pictures from the camera to our Mac?


Try to get your money back for the camera. If not, go buy your son a better camera. Vivitar has no drivers for anything. Only what comes with the camera (WinXP only). Plus the viewfinder is junk, and the camera loses all store pictures when the b ... Digital Cameras

Olympus C-5060 - has had a melt down with continual beeping and has lost focus. It also doesn't switch off even when the dial is turned to off. The lens does not retract when turned off. I had it in super macro MF just prior to this happening. It has been a great camera and I'm not ready to give up on it! Are there any camera gurus out there with some ideas on what to try?

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


You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Have a lumix DMC-FC20 and began to hear a noise as if there was a loose part... I am familiar with the stability mechanism and was aware camera movement can result in a noise that sounds similar to a loose part but the noise continued even if the camera was powered-off. My curiosity got the best of me and I removed the screws on the casing and opened the back to confirm that there was a loose screw approximately 1/4" long. I have no idea where the screw came from since I could not easily remove

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to make it more accurate? i also noticed when i take pictures it always save's as ORF file. how can i change this settings to a different format? i already tried restoring the default settings but why can't i access the Custom Reset option on the menu bar?


There are multiple reazons for the picture to look dark, a very short exposure, or a low flash intensity.\015\012Try changing the flash intensity, this is done by pressing the Exposure compensation and flash button simultaneously.\015\012 ... Olympus E-420 Digital Camera

I have olympus u850sw camera. I took it into the sea and when I came out it wouldn't switch on. On further inspection looks like water had got inside the battery and usb port. Batteries are fully charged and won't turn on. Anyone have any ideas of how to fix? Thanks, Eilidh

When I try to power up my Olympus C-5060 5.1 MP wide zoom camera, the lense will extend, there is a pause, the lense goes back in, it beeps 18 times, it tryies again and beeps 18 times again and shuts down. This happens even with a full battery. I tried all of the troubleshooting tips listed on this website to no avail.

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so.

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.


Yes the camera is having trouble with auto iris control. send it for repairs. ... Olympus Stylus 700 / 700 Digital Camera

Have old Olympus D-510 and Camedia Master 2.5 Software. Used software back with old Win98, then new computer to Win XP, downloaded update for 2.5 to work with XP. Now have another new computer with Windows 7. Question no. 1 - A friend who is a computer technician told me I dare not download any older software programs as they could ruin Win 7 operation. He said go to websites and download new software. Got to this site it says it can run a scan and replace driver or whatever is needed, but


Your friend is correct...you could cause problems trying to install an old software program on Windows 7 (although it probably would just reject it). Windows 7 sometimes comes with photo editing software already loaded. If not, there are free program ... Digital Cameras

Got an FE47 14MP but the sharpness of the pictures is a disaster. I have tried using different options in different light, background and environment but nothing changed. Lens is perfectly clean too. I have taken it to the Olympus agent who has sent it to Portugal for checking and they claim that the camera is according to master sample. Any ideas on what else I can do?


The only option is to take sample photo's and put it on photographic paper to prove your point and take it to the Olympus agent to show him the problem, "take few photo's" the problem you are describing is in the focus mechanism of the lens itself, c ... Olympus FE47 Digital Camera

My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the camera still worked for the whole day as well as the whole evening, but the next morning the camera did not work.
