Having problems with your Olympus E-420 Digital Camera with 14-42mm lens ?

Not able to Custom Reset the camera

\015 I have an Olympus E-420 that I have only had for a few days and somehow some settings have been changed. Being fairly new to the digital SLR's I probably did it unknowingly. I want to reset the camera to factory settings, but it won't let me select it from the menu. There are also some other settings that I am not able to select. I can see the tab 'CUSTOM RESET' in the menu but am unable to select it, when I press the down arrow, it goes past it to the next option. Please can you help me?!?! Thanks in advanceJess\015

Some of the files that have been stored onto my SD from the camera are screwey. For example, some photos and videos are able to be seen while others say this file isn't supported on the camera when editing or when on the pc, it says something about not having the correct graphics converter. After reseting my camera to factor setting, this problem disappeared but I still can't upload those particular videos/pics onto my pc


You can try to use some video converter and photo editing software like photoshop and check if that will do the trick.... ... Casio Exilim EX-FH20 Digital Camera
