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- Select Format - 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.

Why, when turned on, my Stylus 840,shows an LED display that looks like night time with pink and blue colors. If photo is taken, it comes out pink. Why is this? Any suggestions as to why this is do


I'm afraid you have a defective camera. Or the sensor is defect, or the connection to the sensor is not good. (lose, oxidised, broken or lots of other stuff) also the main board can be defect. If also the pictures come out (on the computer) dark and pink, I.m afraid you have to start saving for a new camera.
Make sure the lens is clean and not greasy.

Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840


Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.

Olympus Stylus 840 will not work after I erased all the pictures from the menu option. Menu appears but does not work, camera buzzes when power is turned on, zoon is jammed in extended position.


You will probably have to update/upgrade the firmware. Go to the Olympus website and search for the latest firmware version of the camera and download to your PC. You can then install it into your phone.

You can first try a hard reset..Remove the batteries and SD card, wait a few minutes and replace with fresh batteries and see if this helps. you can also try tapping a side of the camera on the palm of your hand to try and dislodge the lens..

Hope that helps.

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set...


The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger.
