Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-300 (Double Lens Kit) Digital Camera ?

Olympus E-300 Digital SLR storing black images.

\015 My Olympus E-300 Digital SLR has started to store totally black images on the flash card. At first it was once in a while, now it is happening 3-5 shots in a row, with one good image in between. These images take up memory space on the flash card. We tried a different card, but same problem. Olympus has no answers.\015

Answers :

Most likely the shutter "curtain" (a few pieces looking like sheet metal just behind the mirror, designed to protect the camera CCD from dust and damage due to too much light) is not opening. This will require servicing by Olympus, since you will have to take the camera apart to be able to reach this camera part. Unfortunately, this may be a pretty expensive repair.
Hello , I have the same problem, now with all shots. Looking to your answers I adjust on MENU elevating mirror 5 seconds to check shutter with lens removed and I see all times the shutter working OK, and surprise!, the pictures without lenses d ont be black. I try whit lens and they works again. May be a problem with dirty pins between body and lenses or soft bug ?.
\012Next time I will check with a older compatible lens.
\012Good look.

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface

I have an Olympus E300 SLR that is having problems with reading memory cards. When I insert the card it tells me it is full, but when I try to view it says there is no picture. The camera won't focus or take pictures when the card is inserted, but will take a picture without one, but not store the image it seems. Any suggestions, advice or assistance greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the memory card maybe corrupted. Try using a new memory card. ... Digital Cameras

Memory cards My camera specs say that a 16MB memory card (like a Secure Digital or CompactFlash card) can store up to 110 images. So why doesn't mine store that many? And exactly how many images can be stored on a 16MB memory card anyway?

You may be able to store up to 110 images if you use the camera in its lowest resolution mode. In high resolution, you may get only 24 shots. We wish we could tell you precisely, but it depends on the exact size of the file created by a given camera, ... HP Photosmart 120 Digital Camera
