Get it warrantied cause any attempt to fix this by you will void the warranty. For everyone else, Remove the faceplate, on the top right you'll see a cable going from your screen to the camera. lift the brown part of the connection and remove the cable. CAREFUL, if this gets damaged you will have to buy a new camera!! After this I would completely remove the camera from it's housing and reseat it.

I press button for camera, screen says "loading", I focus on what I want to take picture of, press button to take picture, screen says " ! Insufficient Memory". I deleted all pics...

It could be that your camera is automatically saving to your phone instead of to your memory card. Check your camera settings for that.

Press and hold the camera button located on the botom right of the device. This will bring up the camera app. Once the camera app is running press the same button to take a picture or half press to cause it to focus then press to take the picture.

Preview error comes up when i press the camera button

Hi, sorry for late answer. I think it is a common problem on flip or slide mobile phones. I had the same problem and i fixed it by replacing the ribbon flex cable. They are very cheap on ebay (i got one for $2.35 with free P&P)...
Here it is a video that may help you.
Hope it'll works on you too...

How do i take pics?

Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

Olympus 850sw- write protect and picture error

Sounds as if the memory card has corrupted data on it now. You will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup Menu - right arrow to Format- Press Ok. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect and picture error messages and the card can be used again.

LG Chocolate: Camera Button reboots phone

The problem was solved by replacing the flex cable that connects the two halves together. My phones screen is back, all the buttons work, and the camera button no longer reboots the phone (also going to camera through mypix doesn't cause reboot either). The cable was very easy to replace and took me 10 minutes at most only using a screw driver and the info in the link I provided ealier.
