Olympus D-425 won't take pictures

I lent my camera to my cousin, she took some pictures then I got the camera back and I couldn't take any pictures. The lens seems to be fine the camera turns on but when I try to take a picture the image goes a bit darker and goes back to light when I release the button. On the top left corner of the screen a green circle and a red flash sign appears but I wouldn't know if thats what it usually does as I never noticed. It only shows the circle and flash sign when I press the button and then they disapear. It won't take any pictures on any mode, it also won't record video. The camera wasn't dropped or messed with as I was right there when it stopped working. I'm tempted to open the camera to see whats wrong but I want to see if anyone can offer me a solution first. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks. -Nicole

Hi, I have an Olympus camera, D-425. For some reason, when I have it on the MOVIE setting, it only allows me to take 6 second clips. I have completely deleted all other photos from the camera, and it...

Greetings - It sounds like you are trying to use the camera's internal memory to shoot video. The camera only has 14 MB of internal memory.
If you want to shoot video or store more than a handful of pictures you need to get yourself an SD memory card and install it as directed in the manual. A two GB card would hold up to 60 minutes of video and can be purchased for about 10 dollars (USD).
Have Fun, Mikeywaf

OLYMPUS C-170(E)C CAN NOT CONNECT TO PC to download photos

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

A/C adapter

The A/C adapter recommended for use with the D-425 Camera is the E-7AU. Use this 110V/120V AC Adapter to conserve batteries when downloading to your computer, for extended work in a studio, during printing, or while viewing images while connected to your TV or VCR. You can purchase this through the Olympus Emporium or 1-800-201-7766.

Macro mode

The Macro Mode is easily accessed via the arrow pad on the back of the camera. The right (>) arrow key, which has a flower icon, is depressed to start macro mode. Press OK and you have set the camera for close-up photography.

When batteries are low and they are not used for a period of time, they can build up enough voltage to give a full battery indication. The batteries only had enough power to shoot one image. The batteries are exhausted and need to be replaced or recharged.
