Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

Olympus Stylus 1030SW. The LCD monitor is pixelated. The pictures that are taken with the camera are crisp and perfect. When reviewed on the camera, they are very pixelated. When searching through menus, there are lines going across the screen. Was wondering if there is a way to reset the monitor or if this is a repair that needs to be done by the manufacture


Answers :

You can try to reset the camera to factory defaults to see if this improves the monitor. You go to Menu and then left arrow to Reset and press Ok. Up arrow to Yes and Press ok this will put the camera back in factory default settings. If the screen still shows as pixelated, you might try to do a function of the camera called Pixel Mapping. Go to Menu and then right arrow to Setup then down arrow to Pixel Mapping - right arrow to Start and then the camera will try to repair the CCD processing chip inside the camera. If after this completes if the screen is still pixelated, then you want to send it to an Olympus service center for repair.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

Lines Hi, I just bought my FE-280 camera and found that there are lines across every picture I take. You cannot see the lines when you are viewing what you are going to take through the screen but once you take the photo, the lines appear. Is this a setting problem or a fault in the camera?

I've recently noticed a wide dark horizontal line approx 1/4 of the way down from the top of my screen display. The camera is kept in my home office, has not been dropped, gotten wet or exposed to extreme temps or humidity. The still photos come out fine but the videos I take have the line going through them. I played with it this evening and notice that the line moves down to about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom of the screen when I press the shutter in picture mode and stays there while

White lines My camera now records whie lines across the image, like scan lines on a TV and is prone to overexpose. Recording on video mode is no problem so I assume the sensor is OK.

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green. This is with the flash indoors or outdoors with just normal light and the camera on full auto. I called canon and they said it sounds like the sensor is going bad. Just wondering if anyone has any advic


The experts at Canon are probably right. But, check the white balance and make sure it is on "auto WB". Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. If it still doesn't work, then you probably need a se ... Digital Cameras

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f
