Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

I have an Olympus e510-- it makes a wierd clicking noise when I shut the power off. It also takes pictures on its own for no apparent reason. This is my first SLR so I do not know as much as I probably should. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a Vivitar Series 1 70-300mm f4.5-5-6 AF lens, which I bought for my SLR Minolta Camera. Now that I want to buy a DSLR, I would like to know which DSLR for sure will work with this lens I already have. I know Sony bought Minolta, but I have asked them and they did not give me an answer. I hope you can help me because I want to be sure about which DSLR camera model I should buy. Thank you.

Olympus D-600L Lense tries to open & shutter won't work. Firstly, Batteries are properly charged. The Zoom works, the SLR viewer is closed. When holding down the button it sounds like the camera wants to activate the shutter. I tried to remove the case but even after removing all the screws I still could not loosen the case. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

I inherited a Manfrotto tripod with a a Manfrotto 3130 head attached. I purchased a very large lens and need to change the head, but I can't get the first one off. This is partially because I don't know how it is attached to the tripod. I would have guessed it simply screws on, but nothing moves when I try to unscrew it. Help please. Thanks, John

My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I am looking for a service manual for a Fujifilm Finepix S1500 digital camera, if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

I have purchased two Kodak C143 Digital Cameras since August of this year. The first one, only had for a couple of weeks, worked great at first and then when I would turn it on the lens would come out but there would be no screen at times. At other times the screen would disappear after a couple of seconds, but the lens would not close. I tried taking the batteries out and putting back in, but that did't help. I then took it to K-mart where it was purchased and they told me that it must be the c

Dear Sir,I would like to ask you to help me with determination of old Carl Zeiss Jena binocular 15x50. If you send me e-mail adress I can send you photos. I can not find similiar piece 15x50 in the Zeiss binocular list. The binocular has focusing on each eye, there is no central focusing. Can you also help me what was time when the binocular was produced? I think that it was produce in year 1941-because of its serial number. Thank you very much for your help.

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.


Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Humidity Issues Hi! This past week I went on a cruise to Cozumel and Progresso, Mexico. At both locations, once at the pier and once on the ship, the outer and inner lense would fog over and stay like that for 5-15 minutes. The only way I could clear it would be to place the camera in front of a fan (which would "dry" it faster) or fan it with a piece of paper (which took forever - don't really know if this even helped). I have never had this problem before and have owned 3 different Canon c

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera
