I have a brand new camera and have only used it once. Went to use it again and the LCD screen has gone all fuzzy and pixely. It is also very slow to use the digital zoom and I cant focus in this mode. I have to hold the zoom button for quite a while to get it to switch over to zoom.Unfortunately it doesnt say anything about troubleshooting this in the manual. What should I do as I am at a bit of a loss as to how to solve this problem. Any help would be very much appreciated.

This may help you, try using the Preview feature on the LCD screen. The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in
Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to
confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature
is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
I believe that the "LIVE VIEW" shooting can only be done in Auto mode. Once in Auto mode, try pressing the SET button located to the right of the LCD screen. Once depressed, you should hear a quick click noise and see what the lens is seeing on the LCD screen. Click on it again and it should revert back to "viewfinder" mode.
Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else. This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help.

Hey jess99, It sounds to me like you have damaged your LCD screen by dropping the camera. Even though you could have your camera looked at by an authorized service technician, with digital camera repairs it is often more expensive to fix the camera than to replace it.

I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.
If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.
