Evolt E500 Olympus - Black / Blank LCD Screen

I have an Evolt E500 and the LCD Screen does not display anything! The backlight is on - when I power the camera on the screen gets a little brighter than when it is off and if you view it at tight angles you see more illumination. The camera still takes photographs, flashes etc but no display - very frustrating.

Any suggestions would be grateful.

P.S. The camera has been well used for a few years (proberbly not worth sending to olympus!) I have swapped similar screens in psps but can not find any info/part number for the E500 screen.

    The camera captures pictures fine on memory card and these open on my pc. No info is displayed on the screen it is just black, it goes from Black(On) to Black(off) when I toggle lcd on/off.



    I would replace but I can't find anywhere to get one from.

    Yes, you have to press the info button to display onto the lcd panel. When this is pressed the panel changes from Black with backlight on to black with backlight off. I have browsed ebay but nothings available at the minute, I have found some olympus 2.5" screen but they are for a different model and I am not sure of compatibility.

I have exactly the same problem with my Evolt E-500. Very annoying and I've tried everything, and there's nothing in the manuals to advise about it.

Have you tried pressing the 'INFO' button? This little button will toggle between camera info on display/no info on display (when the display isn't in use to display pictures).

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.


Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

E500 viewfinder does not display subject when tasking pix


Page 20 of your user manual manual explains about each time the INFO button is pressed while in shooting mode. The camera is not a live view LCD screen so after it shows you normal information and then detailed information if you press INFO button again the camera screen will shut itself off. To turn the screen on again you need to press INFO again. This is normal camera behavior.

Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.


I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.

If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Best,

JP
