Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A couple issues

Hello. When I turn on my camera, there is a blinking green dot in the upper left-hand corner and I am not able to zoom at all. If I take a picture then it locks up and I have to actually turn the camera off, take out the battery, put it back in and turn the camera back on before I can take another picture. Also, when I got into the "Play" mode, I am not able to play any videos. And, it will only let me delete one picture at a time. Then I have to take the battery out again. Is there some kind of setting I have turned on that I am not aware of or is there a way to fix this?
Thank you!!
~April

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

Nikon Coolpix p80 blacked out, rounded corners


Have you attached some sort of lens shade to the front of the lens? The vibration might have something to do with the shake reduction system but I can't be sure. It certainly shouldn't vibrate heavily. You might get a better answer if you e-mail the tech guys at the support section of the Nikon website.

Internal dust speck on Canon A720is in same upper right corner


If dust is in the camera, it must be opened. I suggest not doing this yourself. Lookup a Canon dealer in your region and ask for support.

Hightlight message on Nikon D80


Highlight is just the info mode, there are several info modes including Basic file info, Shooting Info and RGB histogram, just press the round controller in the up or down direction to change between them in playback mode. Highlight will flash black anywhere there is pure white in an image.
Try resetting the camera by pressing the 2 buttons with green dots (on top of the camera near the shutter release) holding them for a few seconds.

TROUBLESHOOTING c-750


There are a couple issues related to "slow" that I have with my C-750, and this is how I get around them.

One is the write speed to the xD card. This can prevent you from taking sequential pictures quickly, as the camera displays the current picture it is writing until it finishes. You can make the image of the current picture go away and use your viewfinder again, while the camera is writing the picture, by pressing the shutter button halfway and releasing it. Then you can see your subject in the viewfinder again!

Second is the delay between the time the shutter button is pressed and the time the shutter actually opens (when the camera actually takes the picture). This can be fixed by lining up your shot and pressing the shutter button halfway and holding it for a few seconds. This will give the camera time to adjust and lock focus, shutter speed, etc. There is a small green dot on the display below the battery indicator which will blink a few times when the button is pressed halfway, then remain on steady. When the green dot is steady, the camera is ready. Press the shutter button, and the camera should immediately take the picture.

Telephoto images


The D-545 Zoom camera has a 3x optical zoom coupled with a 4x “seamless” digital zoom to deliver a total 12x zooming feature. Press the Zoom button and a zoom indicator will be displayed in the upper right corner of the LCD – the area in white represents the Optical Zoom range and the red area represents the range of the Digital Zoom. The W represents a wider area of view as you zoom out, and the T represents Telephoto as you are zooming in closer to the subject.
