How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode

You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

The camera works fine on auto settings, but when I try to use it in P, M, S, or A, the image is very dark.

When I've encountered this problem before it has been caused by a faulty aperture mechanism in the lens, but your answers to my questions pretty much remove that as a cause.

All that leaves as the culprit is the camera body. If there was a genuine fault then the same fault should be occurring when in fully automatic exposure mode, and the fact that you can compensate for the fault using the exposure compensation button is good news as it probably means that the fault is due to an inadvertent camera setting: the exposure compensation function is inoperative in fully automatic mode. The E-410 has two user-definable "custom reset" settings (page 70 of the manual) and I suspect these may be the cause.

I suggest that you go into Menu and then to the camera 1 symbol. From here you'll see "Custom Reset Setting" with the options "Reset", "Reset1" and "Reset2". "Reset" restores the camera to the default factory values and should cure your problem. Note that afterwards, the file numbering on the photos you take will also be reset so you may wish to manually adjust the file numbering afterwards to continue where you left off with you last photo. Not doing this will result in file name conflicts when uploading images to your computer.

If this doesn't fix your problem then the E-410 definitely has a fault and it will need to be resolved by an Olympus Digital service centre as the cause will be beyond any DIY resolution. The fault will likely be a software rather than a parts issue so a repair is likely to be cost-effective. Your camera had a one year worldwide manufacturer's warranty when sold new so it's possible that the camera is still covered (the E-420 was released early last year, but new E-410s were still being sold by some retailers early in 2009). There was also an option to extend the warranty so if the standard warranty has expired you might still have cover.

Normally I'd test all of this on my own E-410 or E-510 (same menus/software) but my wife has gone to France with them!

Hopefully I've hit the mark and been of some assistance. If so I'd be grateful if you'd return the favour by rating my answer.

Olympus E410 viewfinder problem

As far as I am aware, you can use the viewfinder OR the live view, but not both at the same time.

This is because a mirror has to flip up out of the way to reveal the sensor for the live view to work, and the mirror needs to be in the down position to reflect the image into the viewfinder.

Switch between the two modes and double-check if there is a problem.

Also try removing the lens from the camera and checking the position of the mirror. It could be that it has got stuck in the up osition.

Hope this helps!

Olympus Cameras

You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

Focus modes

There are four focus modes: S-AF (Single auto focus), C-AF (Continuous auto focus), MF (Manual Focus), and S-AF/MF (Simultaneous mode). (SINGLE Auto Focus): Focusing is performed once when the shutter button is pressed halfway. C-AF (CONTINUOUS Auto Focus): The camera repeats focusing while the shutter button is pressed halfway. (MANUAL FOCUS): The function allows you to manually focus on any subject while looking through the viewfinder. SIMULTANEOUS USE of S-AF mode and MF mode: You can fine-adjust focus manually by turning the focus ring after AF is performed in the S-AF mode.
