Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera ?
How do I reset?
\015 My dear sweet hubby took the E-500 on a flight and now the flash doesn't work in ANY mode. I've looked all through the manual but cannot find a master reset. I'm fairly certain he just hit the wrong button and a reset would fix it. When I go to the first screen that says reset - it is blacked out and I cannot access it. Any ideas on how to get this flash working? Even when I set it to manual full-on flash, I still get nada.\015
It sounds like the strobe is not making good contact with the connection on the camera. Check to see if the pins on the camera aren't covered with crap and the pins on the bottom of the flash aren't bent or broken.

It will not turn on!! the screen lights up when I connect it to a usb port on my computer, reading--"connected" however, when I unplug it from the computer and turn on the power, it doesn't turn on.

It doesn't have batteries? Are you kidding me? If I am not wrong it uses a pair of AAA batteries. It even has an alternative rechargeable pack that looks like this. It charges via USB. ... Digital Cameras

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?
