Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera
Just bought an Olympus Stylus 710 camera. Charged the battery and went to take pictures and it only works half the time. I was able to take my first picture but after that the screen went black. I am able to access the menu with no trouble and even take pictures but they come out black. After taking a few pictures the camera will start working again for a few photos and then just randomly go black again. Any ideas
This could be a bad connection in the camera. Inside your camera you have these little connectors that basically have a lever that applies pressure to the flat ribbon cables in side the camera. If your camera is still under warranty, send it back. If not, then you have nothing to lose by getting yourself a PT.0 Philips screw driver and open the camera and check all the connections. As I mentioned before. Be carefull of the capacitor (it looks like a batter), for it stores a great deal of energy for a very long time. Good luck. P.S. If you've read this message, and would like for me to continue helping people, please rate me. Thank you
