Question about Olympus Camedia E-10 Digital Camera

The compact flash slot in my Olympus E10 has two bent pins

Can I switch to smart media and not worry about the compact flash or will I continue getting errors? Can this be replaced and or fixed?

    So even if the compact flash slot has some broken pins I can switch to the smart media option and the camera would operate off of the smart media slot?

You can also use the smart media card slot. The two cards function independently of each other.

Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who maybe able to offer parts and service on the camera.
As a loyal Olympus customer, our Customer Service Department is also available to discuss other options available to you.
They can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00PM East Coast time, at: 1(800)622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

    That is correct. The camera should default and detect that a smartmedia card is now inserted to the camera and write the images to that card. As I stated earlier, the cards are independent of each other.

THE CAMERA BRINGING A NOTICE ON A SCREEN ERROR CF.WHAT IS POSSIBLE THE PROBLEM.


Digital Camera: How to Fix Compact Flash Memory Cards ErrorIt is not very typical for compact flash memory cards to give you an error. If you do receive an error, it most likely means that a pin within your CF card slot is bent, or your CF card has become corrupted. Unfortunately, if your CF card has become corrupted, you will need to reformat the memory card, which means that you may lose any pictures that were located on the card.
Fixing Your Flash Memory Card

You will want to remove your CF card and the batteries. Take a look inside the CF card slot to see if there is a bent pin. If you find a bent pin, you can correct this problem using a very small and skinny flat screwdriver. Moving very slowly, use the screwdriver to bend the pin back into place. You do not want to use enough force to make the pin back in one shot.
The pin does not have to be perfectly straight, but get it as close to straight as possible. Insert your CF card back into the slow very slowly. You should see the in align itself with the card. You can turn your digital camera on to verify that the compact flash memory card is now working.

Memory cards are locked but the card is not locked


It's unusual that an A95 would report "card locked" as it uses a compact flash card which is incapable of being locked. Please verify the model of your camera, and the card that it uses.
In the mean time, I'll assume that actually own a different camera that uses SD cards. If so, please see this link for troubleshooting tips for SD card locked problems.
But if you indeed own an A95 with compact flash, the problem may possibly be caused by bent flash card pins inside the camera card slot (take a look inside using a flashlight). If bent pins are found, then see this link for a possible home fix.

Bent pin in card slot , i have bent one of the pins that fit the compact flash card is there any one out there with spares to repair, ta steve


This is not a consumer repairable problem. Take it to a professional. If it's just a bent pin (not broken), the repair shouldn't be too expensive.

How long do the normal batteries last?


I use a 2500L for studio portraits and the E10 is on order. Invest in the remote release (the E10 is a huge improvement over the 2500L on that score), the ac adaptor - no need for extra batteries at all and if you wire the computer to the camera you will only need one (fairly large) memory card. The last facility I just mentioned will be an absolute boon in the studio - not so outside. I have an iBook with USB and the way I have had it explained to me is that the camera memory card physically mounts on the desktop of the computer just like another storage device. The thing I hate about compact flash cards is the adaptor that I need to use to download to my iMac and iBook makes things very fiddly but CF cards are much more robust than Smat Media. In a studio with the E10 you would never need to remove the card from the camera! The benefits are huge. Take a shot (or shots) copy them straight onto your hard disk, open them, manipulate them and print them. And take the money! One other thing. I always shoot at the highest resolution with no compression - ie TIFF files. On the E10 they are 12 megabytes each I guarantee that the moment you choose to shoot images at the lower
