Question about Olympus D-490 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pics appear on camera screen but not on card

Hola! I hope someone can help me, I'm losing my mind here. I have taken several pics lately with this camera, which has been working wonderfully for a couple years now. I'll take a pic and it takes a realllllly long time to write it to the card. Now, I can review the pics on screen, but when I remove the card and put it into a media reader, the card shows up as empty.Keep in mind, this is happening with 2 seperate media cards. I have a 3rd card which I'm using and it seems to be working on, takes pics normally and they show up when the card is in a media reader. Is this most likely a media problem (with 2 cards) or is my camera ready for the great beyond? Thanks a bunch for anyone's help! Jim

    My photos don't show up on my computer at all or on a kodak machine at the store.. It is showing in the camera with 2 different cards but, says no card when I tried reviewing with the card out. I tried reformatting the cards and taking pictures again but, nothing works. I called Olympus but they only said try cleaning the card and they don't repair this model any more. Thanks for any help.

If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities: 1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card. 2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead. Some thoughts for things to try: 1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens? 2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else? It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.

I have a samsung SL620. I was wondering if there is a way to set the camara so that there is no deal when you snap the picture. Every time I take a pic of my grandkids they have already turned their...


WOW! The little guys are fast!
Mine come out blurred most of the time, unless it's outside with lots of light.

Sadly, the average digital cameras need that time delay to focus and adjust for light conditions and such.
You could press the button without waiting for this, but the camera will do its own thing, like take its time to focus and adjust and then take the picture.

The Manual setting could help a bit if you always stayed at the same distance and in the same light conditions, but you'd have to preset everything. Not enough time for that, right?

Does your camera have the feature where you can take several pictures in quick succession?
I have a Kodak Z712-IS and it is capable of doing it, but I'd have to use ESP to know when to start snapping pictures, and hopefully one comes out OK.

Retrieval of pictures taken without a memory card


When you take pictures on anyy digital camera, the picture is stored onto the memory card. In your case, since the memory card was full, the picture was deleted the second you stopped looking at it. (from when you took it) I would try uplinking the camera to a computer to see it the pictures somehow made it to the camera, but other than that im sorry.

Shutter sticks


Does the light flash for 10 seconds, with a series of beeps getting faster before the picture is taken so you miss the shot, or are you saying the shutter stays open for several seconds giving you a whiteout picture?

If the former, then the self-timer is on. Press the button on the back of the camera to the right of the displays just under the AV button. The display icon will change from :-
Hand sweeping round clock = self timer mode
Simple square = single shot mode
Stacked squares = multi shot (keep finger pressed to keep shooting)

Memory card problem


The only solution left is to get a card reader and insert the card in the card reader.

when the card is detected it will show a removeable drive in My Computer. Right click on the removeable drive and click on properties....now click on the the tab which says Tools......now under error checking click on Check Now......now click both the option that is Automatically fix the system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

After the scan is complete the card will work fine.

Same xd card problem


Hey! Yeah i managed to resolve the problem and keep all the pics too. I used one of those kodak touch screen machines in a camera shop where you put the memory card in and downloaded all the pics onto cd. When i had checked that they were all on the cd's, i formatted the memory card and it has been fine ever since.
Hope this helps!

Poor printing resolution...?!


You can select whatever resolution you want to print at on your Print(er) Setup.

If your Printer is automatically selecting a 72DPI to print at, you may be trying to print a 10X12 pic size or larger by default due to pic file size created when pic was taken in camera with full 7Meg resolution.

Use photo software to proper size the print before printing. If you want a print larger than 5X7, keep in mind the TZ3 begins to have recognizable noise, reduced resolution due to noise, especially in low light indoor or evening/nite outside shots. You can use photo software to improve and size them before printing. Windows Vista has a built-in photoshop type program. Else, I believe your camera comes with one on disk.

Also, read your manual regarding shooting with this camera.
