Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital Camera ?

I have an Olympus E300 and I don't know what I did but when I turn on to take photos now the display shows "0" photos available to shoot even though I've essentially cleared all images off; and when I press the button to shoot it will not snap. I have tried the factory reset ( P setting, w/ open FC door holding playback and ok etc etc ..) and this has not helped. Help! Thanks....Sandra

Hi Sandra,
\015\012I would suggest that you format the card in the camera.
\015\012You will need to insert the card in the camera and then go into the camera's menu system and choose format.
\015\012In case formatting the card does not help, please try to use another Memory Card to isolate if this is a card issue or a camera issue.
\015\012Also, please check if the card is Write Protected.
\015\012Thee is a small sliding lock on the side of the card, you will need to have that in the unlocked position please.
\015\012If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show.

Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work.

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power.

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.
