Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

When turned on, my Olympus 700 Stylus digital camera shows a thin green vertical line on the right side of the viewfinder--7/16 of an inch to the left of the right edge of the viewing area. Part of this line from the bottom up appears on the images downloaded into my computer. However, when the intensity of the light is increased, the visibility of the line in the viewfinder and downloaded image is decreased. What is the problem and can it be corrected?

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

Hi I have an Olympus 1050 SW which had been coping well with canyoning. ... until now. After the last canyon trip, the camera had severe condensation problems in the LCD screen and lens. I have dried the camera out with a hairdryer and used silica gel packets, which worked OK. But now when I point and shoot the camera it gives me streaks across the image. However, if I use the movie camera option, no streaks. I'm not quite sure what to do with the camera as it's past warranty and I'm reluctan


The fact that the streaks are present only when shooting stills confirm that the issue is not with the LCD display but with the imaging chip. The camera uses a different section of the imaging chip to record video with, so what's happened is that moi ... Digital Cameras

How do I clean specs of dust from an olympus OM10 camera? I have an OM10 that has not been used for many years. My kid is hoping to use it in a college class she has next semester but I noticed it has specs of dust/dirt when I look through the viewfinder. How do I clean this. The price to service this camera is about 150.00 and a couple of weeks. I am not sure the camera is worth it, so I am looking to see if their is a DIY solution. Thanks
