Question about Olympus Camedia C-755 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory card is stuck in the drive-shuts down automatically

My camera, Olympus C-755 (bought at Costco in July 2004) had been working just fine, I can say for two and half years, got amazing pictures of quality and sharpness. Last week, tried to change with a new 1GB memory card, I noticed the old card 512 MB with plenty of picutes did not come easy. The usual "push" to get the memory card out of the camera did not work. I had to pull it with my nails. The new one did not go in easy either and felt awkward the way it went in. The camera needed new format for the new card, and when tried, it got shut down. I am a bit worried to test what happens when I try with my old stick. If something is wrong with the drive, I may kill my picutures in the old card. What should I do? Is thre a procedure, I could stick some alcohol swab to clean the inside, if by chance some greesy/glue kind stuff went in. thanks,

Sometimes the card older gets damaged and brakes the only solution is to replace it, if u notice some grease inside u can put some alcohol or eter the last one is better, but be careful don´t put to much, because can damage the obturator, but first of all look into the slot and check if it´s ok, if thre contacts are fine, if so clean it with eter/alcohol, and insert the card and take it out to see if he realise the spring.

I have an olympus camedia D-390 and was told at Best Buy that they dont make the memory card I need anymore. So what memory card can I buy for my camera?


They are correct...Olympus no longer makes the xd picture card. You might be able to find one at amazon.com This is a 7 year old camera and only 2megapixels. If I were you, I would step up to a modern camera that uses SD/SDHC cards. You will be amazed at the results you will get.

When taking a picture tscreen is black and half pict is black


As long as there are no markings on the camera showing that you may have abused it, the warranty will cover it. Try lightly flicking the lens (not the glass, but the sides) a few times and see if that clears it up.

XD memory card confusion


The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

Panoramic Pictures


If I remember my last Olympus camera it would only work in Panorama mode with an official Olympus memory card. No third party cards would enable that feature. My instructions read "An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for panorama shooting." If you are using an official Olympus xD-Picture card, there may be a problem with your camera.
