Olympus Stylus 1050 SW Screen not working

The screen does not turn on but the camera makes all the sounds and can still take photos, etc. i have been swimming witht he camera but both clips have been closed so there is no problem there. i was wondering if there is just a setting which turns the screen off that i accidentally turned on. if so, could you please give me instructions how to turn it back on (i cant see anything on the screen so i will need instructions like "click left then right then ok, etc...)
thankyou

    Same with ours. The camera seems to take pictures and films, but we cannot view them on the screen. It is all black. How can we get the screen to work again?

    Yes, me also, but I have an older 720 SW. Screen quit working after I took the camera in the ocean but no sign of water in the interior. One other interesting note - it seems to be fixing itself. The screen would work for about 1 minute after inserting the battery - 4 weeks after it quit. Now that time period is getting longer and longer - so maybe it is self repairing. I have been leaving the battery and the USB doors open and just sort of letting it dry out (except I don't see any evidence of water). So that's my recomendation - leave the doors open and take the battery out of the camera and it may come back.

Same Here

The screen stopped working after taking it in the water 4 times in a 3 day period. It still takes pictures fine, but the screen will not display anything.

I have a Olympus Stylus 1050 SW digital camera, How do I download photos to my computer?


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 such as Picasa.

How to use the panoramic function in my olympus 1050 SW.


I won't say it's in the manual.

Turn the selector to the square "camera" icon (just above AUTO).

Press the Menu button, select Panorama. Choose Combine In Camera 1.

Point your camera at the left or right side of whatever you are taking the picture of and press the shutter button. A flashing icon appears with arrows pointing left-and-right. Pan the camera left or right (your choice) as if to take the next shot in the panorama ... a blinking diamond appears and then a square box - keep moving the camera until the diamond enters the square box, the camera will automatically take the next photo. Move the camera again in the same direction, another diamond and square box appear and the photo is automatically taken as before.

To take another panorama shot, repeat this entire procedure, beginning with the Menu selection.

Olympus 1050 SW completely unresponsive to any button


the lens may be stuck ... that is not coming out or not returning in either condition causes it to do something like that ,i.e blingink red light or an error code etc .... solution is that you'll need to open up the camera with a set of precission screw drivers and manually turn in or out the lens to start it back in operation either ways its a bit technical if you never did it before ....could be caused by moisture getting into the camera .....

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Olympus 1050 - lcd screen blank, gasket was loose.


It is possible that since water did get into somehow that it did some internal damage to the camera. I recommend that you call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3
