Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera ?

Shots cannot be seen because the light is to bright. Others work fine.


Answers :

Since the camera's flash only has Fill-in mode, auto mode, flash OFF mode, red-eye reduction, there really isn't much you can do with the settings to adjust it. I had this camera for a while (bought for the underwater feature), and at first to limit the brightness of the flash, I would allow my middle finger to cover a portion of the flash on the front of the camera to limit the amount of light it disbursed. After that, I tried using scotch tape over it. Not the very clear type, but the type that has more opacity (foggy) to it. That worked a lot better and was more consistent than my finger method. Short of any other sort of home "fix" that can be thought of, the camera is basically a lower end camera but has other features that are just as good as higher end cameras. I hope this helps and good luck.

Hi.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Check if the sensors in front of the camera are dirty.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Follow instructions here: Overexposed (bright) photos\015\012they are for an HP, things are the same on your digital camera.
\015\012
\015\012If all that does not help, then either the CCD sensor or the main controller board inside the camera need replacement.\015\012
\015\012Call Olympus at the number listed on manual to get a quote on repair. Alternatively get a quote from a third party here: Repair.\015\012

My camera was working fine and then it gently rolled on to the rug and then it never worked right since. I got the code in the corner of the display E18 and I cannot do a darn thing with the camera now. Should I just chuck it ? ??? Its a cannon power shot A400. (When I turn it on the display light comes on and it beeps numberous times and then the E18 signal comes on and then it goes away and the camera turns off. I do not even think the shutter opens up ) The batteries are charged so what now.

I took about 30 photos over five days. Everything worked until the last day, when I could only see the last 3 photos I took the last day. All the others have disappeared. I checked my card on my computer when I got home, but same results. I did do some re-organizing of features during that time, but I never deleted anything. I just did some test shots and my camera is working fine, displaying my last shots, but I am worried that I may lose my photos again somehow.

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo. I have tried all different settings for the flash but almost all of my pictures come out with the person very white and bright.

I have even tried to turn the flash all the way down on the manual setting. This is the third Sony Cybershot camera that I have owned and have never needed to change any o

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.
