Flash memory takes time and power to erase memory. Did you use new battery or AC adapter? And how long did it take to erase all the images?

SOURCE: Problem with camera OLYMPUS SP 500 UZ

This sounds like a CCD issue in the camera. The CCD is the part in the camera that captures the image (the "digital film") if you will and converts it to a format the camera can read.

When they go bad a lot of times you will see weird colorations and/or stripes, very similar to what you are describing.
You can try eBay for a place to buy, or maybe check the manufacturer.

SOURCE: can i use the olympus sp-550 UZ as a web cam?

It is not possible to use this as a webcam as the camera is not capable of sending streaming data over the data cable rpovided with it and also the software rpovided with it (drivers) is not programmed for the camera to be used as webcam.

SOURCE: 'zoom error' on olympus sp-560

I had this problem and managed to fix it. The camera was dropped on a stone floor and the zoom error was present every time it was turned on. A ring or other piece of the lens was bent or damaged, in my non professional opinion. A profesional repair is my advice. However you may try my fix at YOUR OWN RISK.

Switch camera on, when zoom extends, but before it closes down due to zoom error, gently but firmly push lens back in. Drop batteries for camera to reset itself. Repeat, if necessary.

My camera now operates fully and when the lens extends it now no longer makes the slight grinding noise.

Good luck and remember at your own risk.

SOURCE: How i can mount a new battery cover on Olympus

i just purchased a new cover for $33 from uscamera. part#omp vg4293. You will need a jewlers philips screw driver. Make sure you lay out screws where they came out. They're different.

Open little door on right side where cable goes, remove 2 screws. Then gently on end wher door goes, pull back cover back just enough to remove old door and reinstall new door. Press back together and install screws.

SOURCE: Zoom Error on Olympus SP-500UZ

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

I bought an Olympus SP -800Uz in Las Vegas U.S.A. Should it have had seperate software in the box, Joan U.K.


No, the Olympus SP-800uz has the PC Software on its internal memory.

The quickstart guide does tell the procedure to follow: Initialize camera
and installing the ib software. If you did format the internal memory of the
camera, the software setup is lost. You can find alternative and better
Olympus software here. The ib software you can find here.

The Olympus SP-800uz digital camera does not come with a CD.
All PC software is delivered on the cameras internal memory (setup.exe).

When you need software, you can also use the better and free
Olympus Viewer 2 program for PC and Mac.

I can not do initialation program with my new camera sp-800uz. dont have cd for doeing it, and my computer gives me oceania and asia distric. how shall i go on furter to continue with programs?


The Olympus SP-800uz camera does not come with a CDROM.

The software for Windows is available on the internal memory of the camera, if you did not format / delete it! If you are using Windows, the software should popup a message to install it, when there is no SD-card installed in the camera (only internal memory), if you connect the camera to the computer.

As an alternative, you can download another free and much better Olympus software program, the Olympus Viewer 2. See here (you need to put in your cameras serial number to download it):

Tried to install new camera but it has not brought up the users manual or IB programme. I can upload photos to the Olympus master programme.


The Olympus SP-800uz users manual can also be downloaded:

or English:
http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/SP-800UZ_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf
The Olympus [ib] software is on the cameras internal memory, if you did not format (delete) it. Look there for the setup.exe and run it. Although the best alternative free Olympus software is Olympus viewer 2 which replaces also Olympus Master 2:

Zooming when recording video on the Olympus SP-800uz is only possible when the sound is set to off. Set the zoom to the setting you want before recording, after that start recording.
