How do you restore bios


If your camera does act strange, it is just malfunctioning and you need to contact a service centre.
If there was a bug in the software, all registered users would have had a mail, for a firmware upgrade. I'm afraid there is not such a thing as restore bios.
The deepest restore, is reset settings in the camera to factory settings, but for that, your camera has to work normal.
What settings you can set back and how, you can find in your manual.

I'm having trouble with my olympus E420. When i set the dial to "A" or "S" and press the shutter button, the camera does not take a picture immediately, but after about 1 min.


I had this problem also and I called the Olympus helpdesk. You will need to reset your camera to factory reset and that will solve the issue...

To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - left arrow to reset - press ok - Highlight yes and press ok. This will set the camera back to factory default settings. Hopefully this should solve the issue.

Display not on


The EVOLT E-500 does not have a live view LCD screen so you can see the image you wish to take a picture of. You must use the viewfinder to take images with this camera and only use the LCD to review the images.

As far as to reset the camera back to factory defaults, you need to turn the camera dial to P go to the Menu and on the camera 1 tab right arrow over and then arrow down to custom reset setting and then hit the right arrow highlight reset and press ok it will show reset yes or no highlight yes and press ok this will reset the camera back to its factory settings
