Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera ?

Outdoor pictures show white spot, like ghost - Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera


Answers :

I Would check the sensor to see if it needs cleaning. This will involve locking the mirror up and cleaning the sensor with a special cleaning pad with some cleaning solution. If you are not sure what to do I would recommend taking it to a camera shop as if you scratch the sensor it could be an expensive job. Also check the front and rear lens elements for dirt and clean with a lens cloth or lens tissue. Do not use your shirt as again damage can be done to these delicate surfaces.

3040 Issues I just got a 3040 and had a question about a couple of things I noticed (I've never owned an Olympus digital camera). When the camera is powered up, the noise from the lens coming out sounds awful (like a grinding noise). Is this normal? It zooms in/out without any problems but it just sounds odd. It just doesn't sound smooth... Is a stuck pixel on the LCD enough of a reason to return it for a new one? The pictures do not show the stuck pixel but I am concerned that a new and e

White screen My camera (olympus Fe-46) seems fine when I turn it on, but when I make a picture outside, the screen turns white instead of showing the picture. When trying to make a picture in my room, it showed the picture with horizontal black stripes on it. Has anybody got a suggestion/solution for this problem?

This morning I showed my family the pictures on my Fuji camera which I took in Bangkok and Tokyo. Then I took a plane home from Los Angeles. I just came in (from a flight from LA to Dulles) and tried to show the rest of my family the pictures and what comes up in a wierd black and white outline on the screen. The camera traveled in my suitcase just like it did when I took it to Bangkok. It is fully charged. I hope I have not lost my pictures.

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.


On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Missing Pictures I have an Olympus FE-170 digital camera and I had deleted some pictures off my memory card manually, one by one. When i was finished i shut it off.

It is possible to recover the lost photos with so-called photo recovery software but it's not 100% sure (if the deleted ones are overwritten). Well, since you failed to mention the OS you are running, I'll recommend you have a try o ... Digital Cameras

Black LCD When I took pictures yesterday, each picture looked like it had a white fuzzy covering over it. Now when I turn the camera on the lcd stays black. But when I switch the button from camera to video it works. I also can get the previously taken pictures to show up. I have charged and changed a couple of pairs of batteries.

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you

Hello, I have Olympus FE-330 digital camera. Few weeks back i am using my camera, suddenly when i was taking a picture, i saw a message on screen, it was PLEASE CLEAN THE CONTACT AREA OF THE CARD.

I request you to suggest me a solution for this. Till now i have not formatted my card. Thank you


The best quick fix for this is to take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to your computer. That won't fix the camera problem but you will get your pictures. Once you have the pictures safe, you can try formatti ... Olympus Digital Cameras
