Whirring sound when turning off olympus evolt e-510

\015 I just got my e-510 almost 3 weeks ago. had no problems at the start, but i've observed lately that there's a whirring sound whenever i turn it off. what could be the problem? i do hope it's something that can be easily fixed. thanks a lot in advance for your help!\015

Answers :

Probably no problem. If RESET LENS is set to ON in the Wrench 1 menu, the attached lens will have its focus reset to infinity at power-off.

If IS is enabled when you turn the camera off, the IS gyro will spin down. Both of these things make some noise, but don't indicate any problem with the camera.

Video sound On my Olympus sp-55ouz ~ i haven't ever found a way to get sound on videos. I read the following suggestion on your website, {{Move the Dial To Video, then after you move the Dial to Video, set the [(Audio Symbol)](movie), turn it to ON. And you are all set! }} but it doesn't make sense to me.. I can turn the dial on top to video, but to WHAT "Audio Symbol/movie " is the poster referring? If you could explain this a little more clearly, I would be most appreciative! Thanks. Suzy

My Olympus FE-320 will not focus. When I turn the camera on, lens extends and retracts a couple of times, camera beeps and turns off. If I press the review button while the lens is extended, I can see old pictures then switch to camera and see a live screen, but out of focus. If I try to zoom, camera beeps and turns off. Sounds like others have the same problem with this camera.

When I turn on my Olympus FE-190 camera it shows the "card setup" screen with two choices: Power Off (highlighted) or Format, and gives a 3-ring alert sound. (It does this no matter what is set on the program dial: auto, guide, etc.) If I press OK to "set" with Power Off highlighted, it turns off. If I highlight format and press OK of course it warns me I'll be reformatting the XD card. When I attach the usb cable the screen on the camera shows PC highlighted but when I press OK it says "one mom

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.
