Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

My Camera screen shows lines flickering, how can I fix this?


Could be part of the ribbon cable that feeds from the lcd to the main board has either dislodged or got corroded and is causing a bad connection.if you are brave enough to check always remove the battery first as this will prevent damage to circuitry.if the cable seems fine then it is more likely to be a sensor issue.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
