My Olympus SP-570UZ doesn't turn on.
On top of the monitor is the monitor / viewfinder button. Little right from the centre, you can press that one to switch between picture in the viewfinder or on the monitor.
It also can be your batteries are old and can't be charged to the required charge. Or even when one is not ok, the camera can't work as it should. Try new batteries. And Olympus wants you to use only NiMH batteries. Alkeline batteries may have a much shorter service time. AA manganese batteries are not allowed in the camera and NiCD won't work at all.
When using new batteries, don't forget to charge them before use.
As a last option, it could be something is defect in your camera. (I hope not) When something is broke in your camera, or something is blocking, the current could become to high and damage the camera. Or if a gear is defect, it could cause extra damage in the camera. In all that kind of occasions the camera could play safe and not switch on to full operation.
If nothing will bring back the light on your monitor, the only thing to do is contact your dealer, and if repair should be to expensive, start saving for a new one. Sorry.
