Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera ?

Green colour showing through photos??


\015 Hello :)\015\012I have a new olympus 790SW and am noticing in most photos there are green colours (usually on the edge of something - like the outline of people or things).\015\012\015\012Have tried a few different photo options so this doesn't happen but can't seem to find a solution....\015\012\015\012Any advice would be great - not sure if I am doing something wrong or if the camera is faulty.\015\012\015\012Thanks :)Jade\015

Okay I called Olympus and they told me to try to reset the camera. I know you have tried using the reset option already from the meun, but apparently if you open the battery door, leave it open and hold down the Menu button and the okay button at the same time, it will (as the olympus guy called it) do a hard reset. This should restore the screen back to what he refered to as the factory settings. After you do that shut the battery door, and turn the camera off. Then turn it back on and you should be in business. it didn't work for me, but that is because mine was apparently sold to be after it was the floor model ( I had no clue). I have since returned it for a full refund. I thought I would pass on that the olympus help support people said.

Colour On recent photographs there's a distinct green tinge, particularly noticeable on outdoor shots. I can correct this in an editor, usually by reducing the green a little and increasing the blue level. The green tinge seems to be consistent, not just occasional photos. I can't find any obvious way of dealing with this in the camera manual, unless the white balance can be used to remedy it. I notice there's a footnote: 'The colour tones may vary somewhat depending on the shooting condition

When i look through the view to take a photo it looks like it is running down the scene as it is melting, the colour is weird also.

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images. I've tried changing the settings, I've changed the camera modes, I reset the settings altogether and even changed lenses and yet the camera still takes tinted pictures, inside and outside. Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

My Canon A95 camera which, up to now, has given beautiful color rendition, suddenly shows distorted colors. Greens have become intense veridian and there is a purplish haze on some photos. The distortion shows up on the LCD screen as well as when viewed on a computer screen. I can, to some extent, correct this in photoshop - but not entirely.

Error #e21 I've got a kodak easyshare v610, which is RUBBISH!!!, but apart from that at least I was really looking forward to make some simple photos on it, but after half a year of using it ERROR E21 appeared on the screen! It's switching off or freezing and showing photos in many different colours saying "error e21" constantly! I don't have any warranty on it. What should I do? Chuck it away? I've paid for it £350 + SD memory card £50, I know, now new one is worth no more than £120...

I rec'd a The Sharper Image digital photo album with keychain as a gift two years ago. I have installed the 55 pictures from my pc to the unit.

No light comes on green or red, but it is always green when plugged in. I think the unit does not have a battery in it as it should. If the battery is dead, it wasn't even used.
