Question about Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom Digital Camera
When new batteries are inserted the camera "boots up" to one of the last pictures taken. This image is frozen on the view screen. I cannot scroll through the images, the image remains for all settings on the top dial. The camera will not go into picture mode to take photos. The lens will not move in and out. The arrow buttons on the back will not function after pressing the OK/menu button, although the info, mode menu, etc icons appear. The camera was stored for approximately 6 months and was not operated during this time. Each time the memory card is removed and reinserted the red light on the rear of the camera blinks several times. This also occurs each time the camera is "started" back up.
Use a card reader, in case you cannot connect the camera to the PC, and download all card contents into the PC. Use a known good card on the camera, see if there's any difference. You can also format your old card, just make sure you don't do it in a different format that will later cause you more trouble. When the camera was stored for 6 months, did it have batteries in it? Check for corrosion on the contacts, and try cleaning if there is any. you can use a pencil eraser, just make sure to clean all the pieces. Hope you work it out
