Having problems with your Olympus E-1 Digital Camera ?

E1 dial willnot engage anything but P mode even when moved to A,S.or M modes

\015 When I rotate the mode dial say to A,S or M modes the viewfinder shows that the camera is in P or Ps mode. I have held down the stop button and tried rotating the dial to and fro to see if it will engage to no avail. I have removed the battery for 24 hours to see if the camera would reset and I also did a physical reset again with no result.\015\012\015\012Can you suggest a way to fix the problem please.\015

Answers :

Either the contacts in the dial are gone which would call for a servicing or replacement of the dial/circuitry, or you need to get the firmware updated, which you can do from the Olympus site.

The 'selector' mode that moves between recording, camera modes etc. won't move from the recording mode. Worked great this morning. Videotaped entire disc but now cannot move that green-light selector. HELP!! It's a borrowed camera and I don't believe I pushed anything I shouldn't have!

Hi, My D80 has suddenly developed a fault, where it registers the flash as open and in use even when its shut. This has the effect of syncing the shutter speed and limiting it to 1 200th in all modes. In addition, whilst the flash button will still change the flash mode using the command dials, it won't open the flash- almost like the camera thinks the flash is already open. I have tried prising open the flash, and it still doesn't fire even when open. There was no indication of a problem previ

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed. Switch the camera off, and then back on again, and it still takes a picture automatically without warning....! Indeed, the camera seems to be 'confused'?...even in ME

Whenever I plug the USB cable into my camera, the screen goes black. It does it even when the cable isn't plugged into the computer. Even though the screen is black the camera still functions normally but it won't let me upload anything. When i try to upload my pictures it keeps saying USB Mode connecting........ then it says below that: Switch on [ MENU ] .... i don't know what to do ????

As far as I know, most cameras are made so that once it senses a USB cable (whether as being inserted physically or as a source of current), it reduces the camera to pretty much no more than a memory card reader.  It is my belief this is so you ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital 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
