Question about Cameras
My camera is Olympus SP 800 UZ . Kindly please reply to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org . My problem is even after deleting " All images" from the built in memory ( 2 GB ) though the display says " NO IMAGE " but when I connect it to the computer it again shows all the same old images.?! Why is that happening. I do not know if the same thing will happen when i put the SD card in. Can you please advise me back. Please reply to my email kindly at email@example.com
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?

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.

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.

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.

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. Looking at the bottom,Remove 1 screw under battery door. Two screws on bottom my mount. Open little door on left for mem card and remove 2 screws. 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.

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.

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