Carefully check your manual to make sure you are doing all that should be done. If still in trouble take it back to vendor.

I have a stylus 5010 - some how the camera is hung up it says "write protect" when I turn it on and when I try to use it. I can go into the menu but I cannot do anything as "write protect" shows whenever I...

Does the memory card have a slide switch on the side? It should be set to "unlocked". If that doesn't work, use a card reader to download any pics from the card and then insert it back into the camera. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. By the way...cameras can't get a virus.

Cannot transfer 2010 photos to imac

Use a card reader instead of your camera. When the icon appears on the screen, double-click on it and select the ones you want to transfer. Transfer them to a folder you create on your desktop and from there, you can do anything you want with them.

I have an Olympus 790. When I tried to use it last week, it wouldn't turn on. I also have a new Olympus 770 that I have never used. Today I turned it on and it worked fine. Then I took the memory chip...

Either the software in both cameras need be updated. EIther by online software update program or the manufacture will do it for $50 a camera.
Otherwise, some SD cards to have conflicts with some camer'a software for some reason. Sometimes using the wrong sd card in a camera will result in memory flash and causing the camera to be in need of software update. Once updated you should be good and should work with all sd cards from now on.

Olympus C-770 camera not turning on

The switch may be going defective, or the circuit board that it is sitting on is defective. This would require factory level service. They will most likely change the switch assembly to get the camera working properly.

Lens stuck

I had an Olympus 725 which I bought in Dec 06, this xmas I went home to see my family in Ireland (I live in Australia) and stopped in Thailand on the way back, the camera broke when I was snorkeling, 4 days out of Warranty!!!! Same issues as you guys had. When I got back on the 16th Jan I brought it back to the shop, the guy told me my best bet would be to get onto Olympus directly and explain the situation. I did and they told me to send it in. I wrote a letter of complaint and sent it in with the camera (I also had problems with my XD corrupting itself, and I lost a lot of pic's). Yesterday when I came in from work there was note in my letterbox from Australia airmail saying they had tried to deliver a package to me but there was nobody home. Just found out awhile ago it's a new camera, a 795:) so I'm well happy. Will buy an extended warranty aswell tho, just in case. Sooo my advice is to deal directly with Olympus and not with any shops or agents.

Time/Date function for C-770

I dont know if this is any help because I am not sure if you actually want the date and time stamped over the top of the picture or if you just want it to have a record of the date and time with the picture. If the second option is OK then when ever you take a picture with all digital cameras I have owned and the c-770 is my newest it puts a tag in the file so that when you right click on the picture and go into the properties you can select the summary tab at the top and click on the advanced button and it will tell you every setting that the camera was set on to take that picture including the date and time it was taken.
