I had this problem today when installing Olympus Studio 2. I turned my Spyware and Virus Protection off, and the program installed correctly.

The camera only takes black/blank pictures. I have no LCD screen. I am a novice, and this is my first SLR camera. I purchased it used off of Ebay, the previous owner swears that it worked when he sent...

Turn your camera off, remove your batteries for about 30 seconds and let it reset to default. Then try inserting the batteries and see if this helps. a link to go to is:, then select americas, then select support, then select your camera, then download your manual in PDF format.
there is firmware built-in software which the camera uses to work properly. As a software, you can update it by connecting the camera to a PC and running the Olympus Master software that should have been included with the camera.
Then Set (PC MODE) in the E-300's (Set up Menu) to (Storage). If the operating system is Windows XP, remove the memory card before connecting the E-300 to the PC.
In the Olympus Master software Help Menu, you can look for "update firmware" to follow the instructions. Good luck
But be forewarned that it will only work if you have the newest Olympus Master Software Update, Olympus Master 2. Olympus Master 1.1 will not be able to connect with the online server. Luckily, Olympus Master 2 is a quick and free download from the Olympus site.
Otherwise this could be an intermittent shutter problem or speed setting going astray?
Look like it may be a trip to the Olympus Repair shop

Try to set all menu items to default as much as you can. Some cameras have a reset to default setting or a button to reset to default.
After setting to default, try the camera again.
If all fails, this camera will need repairs.
If it is too old, and not worth it, it may be the best to sell for parts on a site such as Ebay.

    Try to install the new software and see if it will uninstall it for you, or upgrade it to the new. If not then try to find the folder the old program is in and see if there is an uninstall program, if so run it, if not then try to delete that folder and then install the new software.

    My pc can't find my C765 camedia zoom camera

    That depends - what operating system is running on your computer? If you are running Vista it is because Camedia Master is not compatible with that operating system.

    To learn about the new and free version of Olympus Master 2 software go to: Click on 'Free Download' to register your email address to receive an email containing a link to download either the Windows or Mac version. This software replaces all previous versions of Camedia Master 4.x and Olympus Master 1.x and is XP and Vista compatible.

    Installation operation failed 00001603 Olympus Master 2

    After contacting Olympus in hamburg, the problem was solved and installation of the new software (version 2.06) was possible.
    There is - however - a bug when you choose the automatic update system. Don not do that and the program is running OK!

    The advises from Olympus - Hamburg:

    1. Download MSXML.msi from
    2. Run msxml.msi and choose Remove to uininstall msxml4.
    3. Run msxml.msi a second time and install msxml4.

    restart your PC and install the program

    Master Software 2 help!

    Ditto. Installing on XP w/SP1. Plenty of hard drive space. Pentium 4 w/2GB RAM. Tried different drives. Tried copying CD-ROM to hard drive to verify it was reading of the CD ok. No problem copying but still failing on installation. I also tried by-passing the initial Olympus menu and launching the .msi directly, but that fails in the same way. I haven't found anything on the Olympus website about this, but note their website generates tons of Javascript errors which is not encouraging with respect to Olympus's attention to quality. (This is my first and probably last Olympus.)

    Tried pulling the XD media and reading it on the computer but my computer wanted to format the thing (never seen that with SD or Compact Flash, what gives?) so that was a no for the moment.

    Finally, I went to the files that I had copied from the CD to my hard drive and double-clicked the file found in the OLYMPUS\OLYMPUS Master 2 directory. That contains a bunch of .cab files, that I extracted to another directory. In there, I found a, which I then extracted to yet another directory. In there, I found OLYMPUS Master.exe. That ran fine when I double clicked on it, but I still had the problem of not being able to read the XD directly, so I hooked the USB up to the camera with the XD back in the camera and was able to transfer the images in that manner.
