Question about Olympus E-420 Digital Camera with 14-42mm lens

1 Answer

Not able to Custom Reset the camera

I have an Olympus E-420 that I have only had for a few days and somehow some settings have been changed. Being fairly new to the digital SLR's I probably did it unknowingly. I want to reset the camera to factory settings, but it won't let me select it from the menu. There are also some other settings that I am not able to select. I can see the tab 'CUSTOM RESET' in the menu but am unable to select it, when I press the down arrow, it goes past it to the next option. Please can you help me?!?!
Thanks in advance

Hi, in order to access CUSTOM RESET, mode dial must be selected to SCENE MODE or any mode other than AUTO.

Good luck!

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to...


There are multiple reazons for the picture to look dark, a very short exposure, or a low flash intensity.
Try changing the flash intensity, this is done by pressing the Exposure compensation and flash button simultaneously.
Or playing with the exposure settings to see if there is any difference.
Concerning the ORF file format, this is this camera's RAW format, it's usefull to proffesionals, but for the common user, JPEG is the best option. As far as I know, this camera records both formats simultaneously.
For future refferences, here is the user manual : http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/E-420_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf

I'm having trouble with my olympus E420. When i set the dial to "A" or "S" and press the shutter button, the camera does not take a picture immediately, but after about 1 min.


I had this problem also and I called the Olympus helpdesk. You will need to reset your camera to factory reset and that will solve the issue...

First, put the mode dial to "P". Now you can use the menu to do a "CUSTOM RESET" (see p.118 of the printed manual).
