Question about Olympus EVOLT E-300 (Double Lens Kit) Digital Camera

Olympus E-300 Digital SLR storing black images.

My Olympus E-300 Digital SLR has started to store totally black images on the flash card. At first it was once in a while, now it is happening 3-5 shots in a row, with one good image in between. These images take up memory space on the flash card. We tried a different card, but same problem. Olympus has no answers.

Most likely the shutter "curtain" (a few pieces looking like sheet metal just behind the mirror, designed to protect the camera CCD from dust and damage due to too much light) is not opening. This will require servicing by Olympus, since you will have to take the camera apart to be able to reach this camera part. Unfortunately, this may be a pretty expensive repair.

    The exact same thing happened to my camera and the camera shop where I purchased the camera confirmed that it was the shutter "curtain".

Hello , I have the same problem, now with all shots. Looking to your answers I adjust on MENU elevating mirror 5 seconds to check shutter with lens removed and I see all times the shutter working OK, and surprise!, the pictures without lenses d ont be black. I try whit lens and they works again. May be a problem with dirty pins between body and lenses or soft bug ?.
Next time I will check with a older compatible lens.
Good look.

How can I increase the total number of pictures to


Purchase at least one xD-Picture card up to 2GB in size. Or you can use microSD and microSDHC cards using the supplied adapter.

The number of pictures you can store depends on the size of the card, image resolution, and other factors. Obviously, with more cards you can take more pictures.

How do I delete all the photos on my Olympus 710 camera at the same time


You can do a permanent deletion of the memory card by going to the menu and choosing the Setup option and choosing the format option. Once you format the memory card all images are permanently deleted and the card can be reused to start taking and storing images again.

I have this model olympus stylus 300/400 Digital camera.I dont know how to print date&time on the picture please help me thank you


By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order or print reservation that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.
