Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory Card. My camera is sveral years old but I love it and have not had any problems with it until I took out the memory card which I have never had out and put it into my pc to down load the pictures. I had never done this before so I thought I would try it. Well I was able to download the pictures. I then put it back into the camera it now will not take a picture. It snaps the picture but it then does not process. It acts like it is stuck. I then have to remove the batteries to be able to turn off the camera. Do I need a new memory card?

Try formatting the card, it maybe has a virus infection. better use another card and format using your camera. or you may try to remove then reinsert the card several times in your camera, this will clean the contact point inside the memory card compartment.

My DSC W90 is 4 years old -- I love it -- and I've never had problem -- with it until now. It rotates pictures on its own! When I view the pix that I've JUST taken, they look fine. When I turn...


If you have an exceptional amount of pictures on your camera...This could be a simple problem solver? You need to remove some or all your of your pictures from your camera to create more memory and storage.

You have a couple of options

Save all your pictures to memory card, from the memory card save to your computer in a file or to a USB Flash Drive (Cruzer), or on a CD/DVD disk.

Or, install a new Memory card that has more Storage Capabilities.

You need to check your setting as to how the pictures are viewed and stored, it's possible you have your camera set to auto rotate and also auto set format...change these settings to manual!

Kind regards!

This is an old posting but I'd like to comment that once the memory card is used in a computer it won't read in the camera again until you format the memory card. Make sure you have all your pictures on the computer before formatting the memory card. A memory card must be formatted in the camera it is going to be used in.

Nikon d40x issues with memory card

Sounds like the locking mechanism for your memory card is broken or defective. The only people qualified to fix that would be Nikon.

If it is still under warranty, let them know the situation.

If not, it will be around $200 to fix.

Take a strong light and look into the slot where the memory card fits and see if there are any bent pins. If there are, I'm not sure who besides Canon service can fix it, but it sounds like this may be your problem.
