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.

Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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.

Never insert or remove a card while the camera is on. You can try to download the pics on the card to your computer using a separate card reader. Then, format the card in the camera.

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.

Memory card


Yes, it is likely that the larger memory card is slowing your camera down.

Olympus camera problem


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Zooming causes shutdown


I think your battery is weak, not holding current or not enough.

Before buying a new camera's battery, try to discharge the battery because most batteries have memory problems.

Find a small light that is rated up to the battery voltage.
Connects two wires to battery and then to light.
When the light goes out, battery is fully discharged.
Now, charge up the battery with the camera's charger
Try it on the camera.
