Replacing screen on Olympus IR-500

My Olympus IR-500 camera has developed a small, but ever increasing, star crack on the lcd screen. Before I start taking her apart, does anyone know if the screen is a single part or if it is just a cover that I have cracked? If it is a single replacement, as these parts seem a little hard to find, could you please tell me what other 2.5" screens would be compatible?

I would suggest this is not going to be a viable task. at any level You taking it to pieces and then finding replacement parts. Contact Olypus for advice My guess is that a 'repair' will be near the cost of replaceing the camera. Photo stores [such as Jessops here in the UK] seel Screen protection material. this is like a heavy duty self adhesive tape- which can be cut to size for your screen. That I suggest is a low cost fix.

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.


Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

Olympus FE-270 has a grey LCD screen, with vertical lines.


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $87.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Display not on


The EVOLT E-500 does not have a live view LCD screen so you can see the image you wish to take a picture of. You must use the viewfinder to take images with this camera and only use the LCD to review the images.

As far as to reset the camera back to factory defaults, you need to turn the camera dial to P go to the Menu and on the camera 1 tab right arrow over and then arrow down to custom reset setting and then hit the right arrow highlight reset and press ok it will show reset yes or no highlight yes and press ok this will reset the camera back to its factory settings

Hi cris9ken.
The little blue bar is your memory gauge.
The Little green bar blinks after each shot just to inform you the shot was loaded into memory.
As the memory fills the green bar will increase in height to give you a approximate idea of remaining usable memory.

You will notice that it function with or without the Xd card.
meaning it displays the favorites memory as well.
Best regards and say CHEESE, Paul

Multi-Swing


By rotating the display, users can use it to view their subject when taking low-angle, high-angle, and a wide range of other shots. When closed, the multi-swing display also ensures carefree portability by protecting both the lens and the LCD screen. The IR-500 is the first Olympus camera to feature a multi-swing display with 360° rotation capability. It is especially useful in Self Portrait Shooting. The multi-swing display's 360° rotation capability makes it easy to shoot self-portraits as well as other people and scenery. Users can view themselves on the LCD screen while shooting, and use the camera's Self Portrait mode to ensure optimum exposures.
