Question about Olympus Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I have an Olympus e510-- it makes a wierd clicking noise when I shut the power off. It also takes pictures on its own for no apparent reason. This is my first SLR so I do not know as much as I probably should. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you. Do you think by resetting the camera that it will stop taking pictures on its own?



    I truly appreciate your help and knowledge.

When the IS (image stabilization) is on, the camera will make a noise or vibration when turned off. also you may try to reset the camera using the menu under custom reset... (make sure you are in P mode when resetting camera

    never heard of the camera taking pics on its own... probably could be the live view going off but if it is indeed doing that and resetting does not take care of it, then you send to repair

My olympus camera wont take pictures


It sounds as if the lens mechanism is damaged, and when it tries to protract it fails and shuts down.

When you just switch to camera mode, I would try helping the lens come out to get it loose.

If all fails, send in it to be serviced, but expect to pay no less than $80 to get this problem fixed.


Hope I helped,
Tom

Olympus E510, Flash Flicker


If you are in a low lit area with the camera dial set to Auto the flash will do a strobing type of flash trying to help allow more light into the scene. This is called the AF illuminator function. To just go ahead and take the image, put the camera dial to P (program Auto) go to Menu - go to Wrench 1 tab - then right arrow over and then down arrow to AF Illum - right arrow and turn this function from On to Off and then take the image in the P mode setting. No flash flicker should occur.
