Question about Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

SSWF Light Hi, I've had my evolt 300 for a little over 3 years and it had been working fine. I charged battery up and went to turn on the camera and there is nothing-it won't come on and (sometimes) the blue sswf light stays on? I just bought a new wide angle lense and it won't come on when I'm using the new lense either. Thanks!

My E 300 works fine with the 14-45 3.5-5.6 lens, bright viewfinder and good photos. However, with the 40-150 3.5-4.5 lens the viewfinder went dark abd photos are overexposed. Problem went back and forth...


I assume this happens while your camera is in the automatic mode. Because if the camera is in manual, you can't assume both lenses give the same light to the sensor.
But I should look if the contacts on the lens and in the camera, ale all clean and shiny. And not one of the contacts is allowed a dent. Not even a little dent. All contacts must be flexible. Then be sure the Aperture setting on the 40-150 must be correct. The camera manual does not say a thing about the settings on the lens, but I should look there too.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I am trying to charge the battery. The charger is flashing a red light and the battery won't seem to charge. Placed it in the camera just in case, and it won't turn on.


Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.

Hello Kate, See if you can find an internet cafe. I was reading the white balance section of your manual and there is nothing that stops your camera from taking pictures if the white balance is off. 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. I wouldn't mind sending you this manual if you can provide an email address. Or a link to go to is: www.olympus.com, then select americas, then select support, then select your camera, then download your manual in PDF format. I wouldn't want your vacation ruined either.

Olympus E-300 Evolt - LCD Screen doesn't come & SSWF light stays on


My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.

Digital camera quite working


Check out the pins in the base of the card chamber- are any missing or bent? Next check out Mirror action- is it working? Try to get onto the Olympus Tech Support team. If it is broken I think a repair will not be an option- the cost if possible will be well on the way to the next camera This is my camera too - lovely under rated beasts
