Lost images on Olympus sp-500 UZ

Hi, I dropped my camera at a party yesterday and the batteries fell out. Now none of the photos I took at the party are there. I suspect that the batteries coming out is the cause of the problem as the camera still works fine. Is there any way of retrieving these images as they are special to me. Thank you in anticipation.

Camera (Olympus SP500-uz) turns on, but shutter button and zoom lever don't work

Make sure you have the switch turned to "take picture (camera)" instead of "reveiw photos (green triagle)". On this one, i think it is a wheel on the top of the camera.

Only thing I can think of...

Olympus sp-500 uz can I get the date on a photo

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Problem with camera OLYMPUS SP 500 UZ

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.

Lcd screen

That is an effect that can be had by internal software in the camera, like my Sony. Just get in there and turn off "negative" Youll probably see Sepia, solarize, B/W and negative as other choices.
