Question about Olympus Digital Cameras

Open Question

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time and help.

SOURCE: date and time change

First you press the button called "MODE" and, without releasing it, press the "SET" button.
Then, the year will start to blink.
Set the year with the "SET" button. Once you finish setting the year, press the "MODE" button to change to the month.
Then, the same way with the month, day, hour, minutes.
After minutes, the display will stop blinking.
YOUR SET!

SOURCE: Flshing ''E'' on my Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 35mm camera

The flashing E indicates the film is already rewound.   If you're concerned about it not being fully rewound, open the back in an absolutely dark room. A windowless bathroom or walkin closet will work. Block the bottom of the door with a towel or blanket and make sure there aren't ANY light sources in the room. No charger lights, smoke detectors, etc.
If the film is still hanging out, carefully handle it by the edges only & gently remove it from the camera. Try not to kink it. You can manually wind it back in the cassette by rotating the post on top.

SOURCE: 35mm film developed with streaks

I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.

Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.
Codes on blue screen:

5 f 0 8

Sometimes smacking the **** out of it fixes it. Today it doesn't seem to do the trick any more.

Suggestions?

My olympus camera won't charge properly


If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Jacob

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images


You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

Telescoping lens opens but the view finder continues to flash an orange light and I can not push the button and take a picture. I have ordered a new battery to see if that helps because the camera is used...


Before trying the new battery, try cleaning the battery compartment contacts with a cotton swab dampened, not drenched, in rubbing alcohol. Blow dry the compartment and then try the new battery. Thanks, Dana

Grainy pictures...iso problem for olympus stylus 820


Without ISO you will not be able to take pictures.
ISO is the old ASA which is related to film speed
ISO 50 is very slow film speed and may result in blur and some grainy appearance , same as if you PUSHED ISO up to 800 in low light.

Try setting it to ISO 100 and see if that helps.

You can still select auto, but its related to either shutter or aperture priority in relation to the set film speed ( now ISO 100)

Zooming with Olympus Stylus 820


Hey missy0528,
There are a few reasons your images might be grainy, one of which is your image quality is set to low. I would always have the camera set to the highest resolution possible, because you can always reduce the size of an image but you can never make it bigger. Another cause of grainy images in digital cameras is the sensitivity of the camera (ISO) is set to high. Since you are only seeing grainy images when you use the zoom the reason for the grainy images is most likely do to using the digital zoom. All a digital zoom does is crop the image much as you can do in some computer applications, and by doing this you greatly reduce your image quality. I would never use a digital zoom. Your camera has a 5x optical zoom and a 5.6x digital zoom. I would only use the optical zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

C-2100UZ and low light


If you don't need a zoom, the best film P & S that you can get for what you described is an Olympus! It is the Olympus Stylus Epic which has a very sharp 35 mm f2.8 lens. The f2.8 lens with an ISO 800 or the new ISO 1600 film should fit your bill for low light, fast shutter speed photography. B & H has it for $80. Popular Photography magazine once called it the biggest bargain of all times for no-flash photography.
