Telescoping lens opens but the view finder continues to flash an orange light and I can not push the button and take a picture. I have ordered a new battery to see if that helps because the camera is used a lot and it has been about 4 year since I bought it. It is a Olympus stylus 410 digital camera

Before trying the new battery, try cleaning the battery compartment contacts with a cotton swab dampened, not drenched, in rubbing alcohol. Blow dry the compartment and then try the new battery. Thanks, Dana ... Olympus Stylus 410 / ? 410 Digital Camera

I own a Olympus U740 Digital Camera, the only complaint I have with this camera is that in outside sunny conditions it is almost impossible to get anything but your own reflection in the view finder..... it has no other means of viewing except by this means.

I have an Olympus SP-550UZ digital camera. It was dropped onto the floor & now the LCD screen & the view finder are black. I took all the screws out of the back to repair it, but the back panel will not come off. I do not have any covered screws around the view finder. There is a screw under the flash which I can't get to. Any suggestions?

There's a covered screw in the center of the adjustment knob on the view finder. Probably that's the one holding the back. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Minolta Maxxum 400 si that when I was taking a picture the other day it suddenly went very dark in the view finder. The camera is about 15 years old but has been a very good one.

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera
