Question about Olympus Camedia E-10 Digital Camera

Olympus E10 went black

I have an old Olympus E10 that I retired from service so my wife could use it for shooting our kids. This past week for some odd reason the camera all of a sudden has gone "black." If you look through the viewfinder you can't see any image and the same is true for the LCD panel. I have checked everything and I can't find out what the problem is. It was working fine one minute and then the next it goes black. If I point the camera down and there is a light source above me I can see faint glows of light on the LCD screen if I go into that mode. It will still attempt to take a picture but the image is, as you guessed it, black. Can anyone help me on this or is the camera just given up the fight? Thanks for you help.I was on an adventure (3 hour) trip on a squar rigger and after 5 pictures the view finder went black, and while I can still press the shutter and it will take (black) pictures, the display that normally shows F-Stop and Shutter speed isn't changing, even when pointed at a bright source. It looks to me that the mirror that flips up when you take a picture is stuck in the up position. I think that it should be a simple fix if I could just figure a way to remove the lens without breaking some thing. In the process of trying to figure it out I've now dropped and lost one of the screws. Anyone know how this lens comes off?

Once a week, I climb a mountain and shout for all the world to hear...."the only truly waterproof camera is one in a specially-designed plastic waterproof housing. Any point and shoot camera that says it's waterproof WILL LEAK! You just don't know when."

How to shoot in black and white?


This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.

Screen on my olympus stylus 830 went black


You do have a one year factory warranty from date of purchase - suggestion is to send it in for evaluation as it could be a problem with the chip inside the camera that controls image processing. It sounds like that chip may need to be replaced. You can call Olympus Customer Service at 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3 to discuss the repair process with them.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery...


You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend.
Have you checked the contacts in the bottom of the battery chamber for cleanliness?

Sorry I can't solve this but if you decide that the camera is ready for the digital graveyard I need to replace the battery holder on mine because the screw od the holding lever is bust!

Won't turn on


I have yhe same problem. I have discovered that the Thin PCB for the buttons are the problem. If you find a fellow with another C765 fault you can exchange the display and keyboard. If I understand Olympus they can repair to a very high price.
