Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Displays pictures remaining with power off

Hello, I just got this camera. When I turn off the power, the display still shows the number of pictures that can still be stored on the CF card. I remove the CF card, and an E shows up, which returns to showing a number when I replace the card. Any ideas?

Re: Displays pictures remaining with power off

I'm not sure what exactly your question is but this sounds normal. My D50 does the exact same thing. It displays the number of frames left on the LCD on top of the body when a card is in, and an 'E' when it is not, even when the camera is powered off. The only way to comepetely turn this LCD off is to remove the battery from the camera.

The System Error message displays when the files on the recording media have been copied or deleted repeatedly on a computer. Backup the files on your computer, then format the recording media in the camera to resolve this issue.
Formatting the Memory will erase all the data stored in the Memory Stick.
If the error message displays after formatting the Memory Stick, then try using a different Memory Stick media. Once the Memory Stick is inserted, perform manual power reset of the Camera.
To reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Later, re-insert the Battery pack in the Camera to resolve the issue.

The remaining picture counter stays at 999

The maximum number of remaining shots that the display can show is 999.
If the memory card has space for more than 999 pictures, the number will stay at 999 till less than 999 remain and it will start counting down from there.

The screendisplays 1.0k when powered off

This is meant to happen.
The camera is showing you that you have over a 1000 exposures remaining.

On page 35 of my manual it says:

Camera Off Display
If the camera is turned off with a battery and memory card inserted, the number of exposures remaining will be displayed.

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...

Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
