Question about Olympus E-520 Digital Camera
My new camera (bought off of Ebay) is not working well when trying to take action photos indoors. I wanted to try a factory reset, but in the list of functions, that choice is "grayed out". ?? Can I do a "hard reset"?? Thanks!
1. Select P on the mode dial.
2. Open the card door and turn on the camera.
3. Hold down the Menu and the OK buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
4. Olympus E-520 is displayed.
5. Release and again hold down the Menu and the OK buttons at the same time for another 5 seconds.
6. Reset has been done is displayed
7. Press the OK button.
8. Shut the camera off

SOURCE: Controls problem -factory reset?
you need to get a copy of CD that comes with your camera. It has the factory settings you are lookin for. If you go to Olympus site im sure they would be glad to help. (NOTE) The paperback manual does (NOT) include factory settings.

I just spoke to Olympus Tech Support.
You have to download Olympus Master 2. (Their program is no longer called Camedia Master.)
At their main site, search for olympus master 2.

Turn the camera mode dial to P - press Menu button - camera 1 tab is highlighted - right arrow over to Card Setup - down arrow to custom reset setting - right arrow to reset and press Ok - highlight Yes and press Ok. The camera should be back in factory defaults.

I have the same model and I sort of took a page out of Solution #2.
I don't have electronic technician experience so I took one main insight: The Poor Design of the Conduction in the bottom cover.
Here's what I did: I took some Copper Wire (mine came from the wire you use to hang paintings) and some Aluminum Foil.
Next I wrapped the Copper Wire with the Foil. The piece was roughly slightly bigger than 1/2 of a Postage Stamp.
Then I inserted this metal square over the batteries and closed the cover.
I found that I could take more shots without the camera saying Battery Empty.
See if this works. So far it's touchy but it's been taking more photos than before.
