Having problems with your Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera ?

I'm trying to take my digital camera apart. I've removed all the screws, but the back will not come off at the top.


Answers :

Carefully inspect all areas, such as usb compartments, and the battery compartment. They tend to hide screws whenever they can, and one missed screw will hold the back on. I know on the old Olympus cameras,they would put one in the usb port compartment, which got covered up with a rubber cover. Also, open the battery compartment...there is often at least one in there.

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 purchased two Kodak C143 Digital Cameras since August of this year. The first one, only had for a couple of weeks, worked great at first and then when I would turn it on the lens would come out but there would be no screen at times. At other times the screen would disappear after a couple of seconds, but the lens would not close. I tried taking the batteries out and putting back in, but that did't help.

We own a Fuji Digital camerca model S700 and recently purchased a 1 gig memory card. We were taking photos on the weekend (photos which now can't be replaced) and we had a card error come up and the camera completely froze. My husband took the camera back to Shopeers Drug Mart where we had originally purchased the camera and memory card and they suggested we contact you directly. These photos which we took were of our Granddaughter and her Great Grandparents which are irreplaceable.
