Question about Digital Cameras

3 Answers

Olympus C-4000 doesn't complete the power up cycle. It goes fine until the number of pictures taken appears on the bottom left for one second. At that point the screen is black and then everthing goes black. The motor whirs for a couple of seconds and the lense barrel stays out. No buttons have any effect. I've put in fresh batteries.

    My original post said "I've put in fresh batterise." The suggestion to replace the batteries makes it seem that the "expert" didn't read my comments fully.

    Just in case, I did put in another set of new batteries. The results are still the same. The screen comes on showing the number of pictures outstanding but the screen is otherwise black. Then in a second, the whole screen goes completely black.

    That's what I thought. I need to take it in and have someone look at it. $10 later I'm off to my local repair place which charges $11 for an estimate. So much for power of the Internet!

You will need to send the camera in for repair, check your warranty if you have warranty contact your dealer or camera maker.

if you are outside of warranty you can get a free repair estimate from
www.advancecamera.com/repair

for example.

Thanks,

    If still you face problem then there is issue with the gears or motor.
    I suggest you take it to an service center, as personal diagnosis is required.

My Olympus x-42 doesn't take a picture. View from monitor is perfect but when I take a picture, all there is is a white screen


Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.

Where is the self timer on the c-3000 digital camera


try to check this path: Press the Menu button, then press the top/bottom arrows on the Jog dial to select DRIVE. Press the right arrow and press the top/bottom arrows to select. Press the left arrow on the Jog dial to confirm the setting. If you take a
picture without pressing the OK button, the setting will be valid until the Menu is canceled. To take a picture using the selftimer, when the shutter is released, the Selftimer/Remote control signal lights for
approx. 10 seconds then blinks for approx. 2 seconds before the picture is taken. To stop the activated selftimer, press the Menu button.

How do i turn on the auto timer?


Hi, Follow these steps:
1. In any Still mode, tap Settings to open the Settings panel.
2. Tap Self-Timer/Burst repeatedly, until the desired Self-timer icon appears at the bottom of the LCD: 10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, auto-shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later.
3. Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures

How do I set the timer?


Press the self-timer button. It's the bottom part of the cross-shaped button on the back, marked with a clock icon. Each press of the button cycles between ON and OFF.

After pressing the shutter release button completely, the self-timer lamp lights for approximately ten seconds, blinks for approximately two seconds, then the picture is taken.

To cancel the self-timer, press the button again.

The self-timer is automatically canceled after one shot.

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...


Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
