Question about Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

My olympus stylus 850 SW flash stopped working...

Is there any master reset I can do that might get it to work? If not do you think it would be cheaper to bring it to a local shop to get it fixed or sending it to Olympus? I obviusly want it fixed sooner then later but don't know any good local shops if that is the route I should go...

1. Check to see if in Warranty, if not look for a replacement flash module.

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.

Perhaps you (accidentally) switched the card to lock? or pressed the write protect button for some pictures?
Make sure the lock switch on the card is in the up position like on the picture:

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

My flash stopped working for no real reason.


The battery condition may have dropped below the amperage necessary to run the flash. I have had the same problem on my Olympus and Canon, and a replacement battery did the trick.

After used in beach the camera turns on but no image shows up>


Well it might be waterproof, but it may not include saltwater proof. I think that is the case. If so, then the salt got into your camera and caused something to not work. I would take it in Olympus and let them look at it. It could just be a bad camera.

My guess the lcd screen was faulty or the water leaked in there and shortcircit it.
