The EVOLT E-500 does not have a live view LCD screen so you can see the image you wish to take a picture of. You must use the viewfinder to take images with this camera and only use the LCD to review the images.

As far as to reset the camera back to factory defaults, you need to turn the camera dial to P go to the Menu and on the camera 1 tab right arrow over and then arrow down to custom reset setting and then hit the right arrow highlight reset and press ok it will show reset yes or no highlight yes and press ok this will reset the camera back to its factory settings

Display does not show any view


You know you can change the monitor brightness? Check the manual (eventually online) to see how to change the settings. Please check if you can playback pictures you already shot, to make sure the display still works.
You also could remove the battery, charge it and then replace it. This acts like a cold boot from a computer.

My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode


There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

IPICS ON SD CARD DO NOT SHOW ON PLAYBACK OLYMPUS 8010


Many cameras will only display pictures taken by that camera (or at least the same model). Also, if a picture has been edited in any way (opening a pic in a photo editor and saving it without making any changes counts as editing) then the camera will not display it.

My friend has a similar problem: screen works with menu, not for aking pictures.
I do not know if the camera fell.
It seems to me that the sensor might be disconnected or broken.
Could this help in finding the solution or further pinpointing the exact problem

Monitor problem


I would check you display settings. Sounds like your monitor can't handle the resolution of your pictures.

Down load video from camera


download quicktime alternative from this link and run it on your computer. Some OS's don't support the file your video is formatted in.

the manufac. recommends
QuickTime 3.0 or later is required to play back movies (Data
type: AVI/Compression method: Motion JPEG) on a
computer. QuickTime (for Windows) is included on the Canon
Digital Camera Solution Disk. On the Macintosh platform, this
program is standard with Mac OS X or later.

No picture on my LCD


When in the taking mode- this SLR will not show an image as other cameras- because the mirror is down for the reflex view finder- this is normal for this type of camera although I understand there is a make/model that gets around this - but it is not the E-v 500 just like my E-v 300

Display show TIFF


TIFF will always show up on the monitor when you scroll to it. If you adjust the Image Quality on the monitor, it will remember your setting even if it shows TIFF when you scroll back to it at another time.
