My olympus sp-590uz will turn on but is then frozen.

I have had a similar problem. My solution was to check the zoom button. It seems that when it is "out of range" you can do nothing with the camera. Try to adjust the zoom a Little bit and you will probably be "in range" and the camera with work.

I have a Lumix DMC-LC50 When I turn it on it says: Mode dial is not in the proper position I tried everything

The mode dial is the knurled knob on the top of the camera - if you didn't already know. This same error message displayed when the knob is between selection. If you have moved the know to a valid position - where it stops in a detent, the message should clear from the display and be able to take pictures.

If moving the mode dial so that it rests in a detent and the message is still displayed, it indicates a problem with the switch inside the camera (that is operated when the mode dial is rotated). This is not a user serviceable part, and should be professionally repaired. I found United Camera to list a Mode Dial repair to be $42. there are plenty of others that can make this repair for you, too - this was simply the first I saw that had a price (I have never done business with nor am I affiliated with United Camera in any way).

I hope this is a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.

To whom it may concern, Slightly blurred red/pinkish LCD screen when camera is switched on. If I look at pic's taken before this happened they look ok on LCD screen. 1 week ago I switched the camera on...

Do the pictures still look this way when they are downloaded to your computer or just when played back on the camera screen? Was the camera exposed to high heat (like being left in a hot car)?

No images show up on screen after shutter releases

If the images are recorded on the card but not shown immediatly after the shutter release, press MENU, go with the control dial to the recording menu (the one symbolised with a camera) and press AF, the center knob.
On page 1, the third item controls the instant playback, it can be set to OFF, probably your setup, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.

When you turn it on the screen displays "mode dial in not in the proper position." Mode dial does not turn properly.

Something seems to be broken or off between the mode dial and the switch. It also may have broken internal parts.
I have had a camera with a similar problem. It was that the small switch inside was broken, and could not be repaired.
These mode switches can be changed, but will require a digital camera repairman to do such a job. It also could be sold for parts/repair on a site such as Ebay.

R09 shows up when I try to take a picture. Cannot access preview screen. Camera seems frozen.

R09 or R07 etc. is not an error message. In Nikon lingo ERR is the one you need to worry about. The RXX refers to the approximate amount of shots left in the buffer in the camera. Not a ptoblem. You may be trying to take pictures faster than your memory card / camera buffer can handle.

You can try a fster card like 266, but you may find that the camera is also your limitattion.

If you make no changes at all, the camera buffer will eventually clear and you can again takes pictures.

Sony DSC W7 control dial defect

I had a similar problem with my EOS 5, was trying to change between modes and it made a lovely "snapping pencil" noise and then behaved as you describe. I managed to get it done under warranty after a lot of moaning and ****(it was 54 weeks old). After chatting to some camera shop owners it seemed to be the most common problem with the EOS 5 (doesn't happen often, just most common type of error). I could understand it if I was going from the program modes to the creative modes where you have to pass through the "lock" position, but I am sure that I wasn't. Anyway, upshot was that it got fixed, works fine now, but when changing modes I always depress the "lock" button, even if its not passing through the "lock" position. Sorry, but the quick fix is pay the $75 which doesnt seem unreasonable, or switch to a camera that doesnt use that type of switching method, EOS3, EOS1, EOS D3 :-). Hope this helps to answer your question
