You neglected to specify the model of your Olympus camera so I'm assuming it's one of those that use SD/SDHC cards.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SOURCE: I cANNOT OPEN THE LENS OF MY CAMERA. OLYMPUS TOUGH

Apparently some problem in the inside of the camera with the lens assembly or something is disconnected. You can get in touch with the repairs of the Olympus company and see what repairs would cost. I am almost sure that the repair is going to be more than the camera is worth to you.
Many times dirt or dust can cause problems with the lens. Also this can be caused by internal problems which means repairs. In my experience with these small cameras, the lens repairs have been some of the hardest repairs to complete correctly. That is not saying that it cannot be done. If the lens is taken apart or removed, the camera should be re-calculated on a computer with the right software.

SOURCE: Olympus 2G xd M card with pictures - error message "clean card" or format

Just had the same issue today. The Olympus Helpdesk told me that the fact I had printed one of the picture from the Xd card in directly inserting the card in the printer slot for Xd created the problem....
The guy from the Helpdesk strongly recommended to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer exclusively using the USB cable of the camera.
In the end I have saved all my 505 pictures in using the Smart Recovery from PC Inspector but why the hell this problem only happens with Xd cards?

SOURCE: Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"

First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

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 Picture error message and the card can be used again. The picture error message indicates that this image is now corrupted and unable to be viewed through the camera.

My olympus tough tg 310 will not turn on, charge or be recognized by computer


The Olympus Tough TG-310 digital camera is a waterproof device that has great power to withstand any type of harsh weather conditions. This device has been engineered in such as way that you can simply put it in water, but remember that it can only sink up to 10-feet of water.

My Olympus 1050 SW looks like it might have a little water inside the camera. The lens is foggy. I didn't take it very deep the last time I was in the water with it, but I did store it in a cooler and...


You can TRY and dry out the camera, but I can pretty much guarantee you that there is corrosion inside and it will eventually fail if it hasn't done so already. The Olympus Stylus Tough cameras are not very tough or waterproof unfortunately. I have seen dozens of them with smashed LCD windows or that have leaked water.

Don't buy a waterproof camera, cause they aren't waterproof. Buy an underwater case and put your camera in that.

To try and dry out the camera, some people suggest putting it in a ziplock back with rice to pull out the moisture, it's not a bad thing to try. The fog in the lens MIGHT go away, but it will most likely leave spots or a big ring which will show up on all your pictures.

Your camera is most likely a goner, sorry to say.

How deep did you take the camera? The manufacturer website states: WATERPROOF (16FT.). A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 16 feet underwater.If it was deeper than that, the gaskets probably let water in due to the pressure of being underwater. (Basically it means the camera let water in and as such probably will not work right again)

Waterproof camera seems to not be working since the pool.


The camera is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet for about an hour if the camera has never been subjected to any bumps or rough treatment. Can you say you followed those guidelines?

Is the Olympus X560WP Underwater Digital Camera a good camera?


I'm an Olympus dealer in Ontario, and I've never heard of the X560wp either. It may be an exclusive to the Shopping Network. The Olympus Tough series ( http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_digital_sw.asp ) is a really good camera. Durable, good image quality. Downside is their use of the limited availability of the xD memory cards. Unless the price is really good, and you are comfortable buying from TV, I would look at their more mainstream Tough series, Fuji's Z33WP, or Pentax's W80. Here's a link to a waterproof camera shootout test. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Q209waterproofgroup/
