    do you have the remote for this camcorder? if so you can control the playback function by remote and forget about replacing the switch block, at least for the time being.

Hi, My Olympus SP570u. camera was working fine until few days ago. the knob on top with the Auto, movie, Guide etc options has no effect. Regardless of what it is turned to, the camera just takes a...

Sounds to me like a circuitry issue if the camera has not been dropped or been in prolonged contact with moisture. An authorized Olympus camera repair shop is the only option I can offer. You might try resetting it by removing the battery for thirty minutes. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If there is no change, head for the shop or contact Olympus directly through

Card not initialized

Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

Plz help

remove the SD Card and the batteries. Wait for half an hour and then insert two new batteries. Do not put the SD card in as yet. (Waiting for half an hour or more allows the camera to reset itself).

Now try switching on and good luck.
