Dead pixel removal or repair - Olympus SP-310

\015 I have noticed one or two dead pixels in many, but not all, of the pictures I have taken in the last week. This is a new problem. The camera is about two years old. Can this be corrected by some procedure, changing the setting on the camera... of does it have to be repaired?\015\012\015\012If it has to be repaired what is an estimate of the cost?\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012\015\012Andy Newman\015

Answers :

There is a function in your camera menu called Pixel Mapping which may correct the issue of dead pixels. If you go to Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - press Ok - go to Setup tab - right arrow over and then down arrow to Pixel Mapping - right arrow to Start and this will attempt to correct the CCD and remap the pixels in the camera. If this does not work then you would want to send the camera to Olympus for service.
\015\012Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $89 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself. Otherwise, it's a paperweight. Can anyone tell me the secret to removing the back cover? All discernable screws have been removed, but it's getting hung up by the hot shoe and flash. My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

I have an Olympus E-510 which is just two years old. The camera went completely dead on me with no notice. I brought it to a camera repair store to see if they could find out what the problem was. We tested the battery and it was fine. I then brought it to a camera repair specialist who told me that it was the circuit board. He wouldn't repair it because he said it wouldn't be worth it. Is it worthwhile sending in to Olympus to get a quote only to have them say the same thing or should I j

Olympus will charge you for the quote since they have to disassemble the camera to determine the problem. After paying them $100-150 for the estimate, do you still want to come up with the rest for the repair? ... Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom Digital Camera

Olympus Stylus 1030SW. The LCD monitor is pixelated. The pictures that are taken with the camera are crisp and perfect. When reviewed on the camera, they are very pixelated. When searching through menus, there are lines going across the screen. Was wondering if there is a way to reset the monitor or if this is a repair that needs to be done by the manufacture

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...

Sounds like a gear has broken or slipped in the lens mechanism.\015\012Depending on the camera, it will probably be cheaper to replace the whole camera. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so.

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn
