Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera ?
Blue pictures Hi! My camera is takink pictures in blue. the AUTO, M, S, A, P are all blue the scene though is perfect. any idea why?
I don't have a solution for the blue... mine does that too sometimes. But I did just figure out how to get rid of the hilite on screen - just keep pressing the info button until it is clear.
Maybe you messed up with the white balance settings of your camera? try to reset these (according to the manual).

FLASHES C:13:01 When I turned the camera on, I looked at monitor to take picture and was flashing C:13:01-wouldn't take a picture. Shut camera off, turned on and got two pictures off. That was it. By shutting camera off and on was able to get to the review setting and viewed the 80 pics. stored; that was yesterday. Today I get the c:13:01 code on each camera mode and review setting only shows the 2 pics from yesterday, then blue screen, though as I push the review button the on screen picture nu

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Problem downloading I've had my camera for about a year now and have been able to download pictures from my camera to my computer without any trouble. Recently, it has started saying "Cannot find source media for importing" when I try to transfer or import them. I have no idea what that means. I really need to get these pictures into my computer though. If anyone can help, I would be SOOO very appreciative. Thank you!

Overexposure I have owned my Fujifilm S5000 for about 2 1/2 years. It has worked perfectly until the last couple of months. I have always used the flash when the camera told me to. Recently, the camera has been overexposing inside pictures when I use the flash. If I don't use the flash, it underexposes the picture. Any suggestions...ideas? I have moved fairly recently and can't find my manual anywhere. Thanks, Laurie

My camera started taking very bright pictures after more than two years of taking perfect pictures nothing has been changed on the camera setting and the blue light around the ok button is blinking now i dont know how to fix it please help
More than likely the Iris that covers the CCD - just like in your eyes, is stuck open and cannot adjust to regulate the light to the CCD. Therefore you're getting bright pictures. The CCD is the component that captures the image and then converts it ... Kodak EASYSHARE M763 Digital Camera

Blue Hue I have 2 A345 cameras. One is continually taking pictures with a very blue hue to them, useless as a photo, whilst the other camera with same settings takes great pictures.

Got an FE47 14MP but the sharpness of the pictures is a disaster. I have tried using different options in different light, background and environment but nothing changed. Lens is perfectly clean too. I have taken it to the Olympus agent who has sent it to Portugal for checking and they claim that the camera is according to master sample. Any ideas on what else I can do?

Today my 5 yr old dropped our S1050 Samsung camera about 3 feet onto a wooden bridge and now the camera DOES turn on and WILL let me review the pictures I had taken up until that point. However, when attempting to take a picture the picture is out of focus and when I zoom IN it gets clearer but then the camera beeps 2 times and shuts off and closes up. It will let me snap an out of focus picture though. Is there any hope? This camera was expensiveand we've only had it a year. Thanks
