Re: camera goes on, red light, then goes off

Assuming this hasn't been fixed, as it is a bit old... You would have to open up the camera and short the connections to various buttons and switches to test them. If it is a button or switch, when you short that one it should start working again. It' sort of tricky to do, since you have to open it, but have it on so you can test it. Once you find the bad button or switch, it's just a matter of replacing that part.

Re: camera goes on, red light, then goes off

If the lens does not extend then the problem is that the focus element inside the lens has gotten stuck. This is a common issue on this model of camera. If you are mechanically inclined you can remove the front lens cover and front optic giving you access to the secondary optic (this is the focus element). There is a tab of plastic which is easy to grasp with fine tipped pliers, simply grasp it and tug very gently. Turn the camera on and the element should begin moving normally again. If you are not able to do this, or do not have a fine tip screw driver and pliers you can take it to a camera repair shop and give them this information. They should be able to do the procedure for you for a small fee. If the lens does extend, then this is not the problem and I am unsure how to address your problem.

When I turn on my olympus sp-500uz it often goes straight to card setup when i turn it on. I often lose the pictures that I have on the card because I have no choice but "POWER OFF" or "FORMAT" and when I...

I'm afraid you have a bad memory card. Would be better to buy a new one. see it as an extra. They are not that expensive today.
And if your camera tells you to format, first switch off the camera. Then remove the card and try to read the pictures to your computer first. There are programs can recover pictures, your camera can't show.
see these links if you don't already have recover software. with free trail with free evaluation version
Take care you never remove the card before switching off the camera complete and wait till no light is on or blinking.
When you switch of the camera it could be it has to access the memory card, to write the last info it still had in its internal memory. they is when a light goes on or blinks. If you then remove the card or the battery, your file structure can be damaged very easy.
Most camera's show a light when the camera is accessing the memory.

Camera turns on then off immediately

Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

Blinking red indicator light

Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!
