Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again. If I click Yes, I get a Card Error message. I cannot take a photo. I am on a cross country trip, and don't have my manual, but I sure would like to be able to take pictures of the Rockies! I know the camera is old, but I love it. Please help me to get it working again. Thanks, Toni Sinclair

There is a catch inside the camera that is possibly out of whack. You need to make sure the camera itself is not moving the security slider on the memory card. This would be due to puting the card in wrong or just from wear on the camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C340 Digital Camera

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

"For" Message I was infrequently getting a "for" message, which stopped me from taking pics. I bought a new card and all was well for a while. However, it started again. I removed and reinserted the card and this seemed to work. Now, the "for" message is constantly there. The green light flashes on for a moment when I insert the card, then goes off. If I turn the camera on, the "for" message flashes on and off.
