Question about Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Where are my pics?

Similar to another posted problem on this site - I took around 100 pictures last night and was able to review them throughout the evening. Once I got home, it was like they vanished. When I click on the Green Playback button, it stays a black screen. When I am in my regular screen to take a picture, it shows I only have around 60 pictures left available, so I don't think I deleted them. I tried plugging the camera into my computer with the cable, and none of them came up on the screen. Where did they go??

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

I think the camera is working fine but is limited in night photography, in order to get the results you want you will need a better camera that is equipped with the necessary technology to get results you are after. I suggest going to camera store to speak to the attending sale man that can answer all your question and help pick out a suitable camera for the job.

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

Kodak Easyshare V803 "unrecognized file format."

Sounds like there is a fault in the SD card.

Try an alt. card reader and computer.

Hopefully you will have the chance to retrieve the pics. If not ;(

Once pics are transferred. The SD card needs to be formatted. Remember this will delete all data on the card.

You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.

Photos on camera review but not memory card

before unplugging any usb device from the computer... it is best to safely remove before unplugging the device...

i used to just unplug before i lost over 200 pics. was able to recover using recovery software but the whole process took about 3 hours to do. since using safe remove.. not a single loss

some pros suggest formatting the card on regular basis to also clean the card of file fragments... but once card is formatted, the pics are not recoverable... be careful

Missing pics on Memory card that I took today

Sorry. Unless you have a "undelete" program handy, you are out of luck. Even with the program, success is not guaranteed.

Black pictures

Check your settings - could be if very black night, and you set it to 100 iso film speed, and maybe you are on say 1/1000 of sec at maybe f16, then that's ok. You would maybe need an explosion in an oil refinery to capture much.

However, you perhaps could try this:

1 change the battery for fresh one, and see if it helps - sometimes, the shutter won't really shut if battery power is very low

2. change the mode setting to auto, and see if the flash pops up and takes a pix - then if the pix is good, the camera is still working

3. Reset the camera to the factory defaults, by:

  • Firstly press the 'menu' button, then the up button above the 'OK' as many times as needed, until you see the top folders are highlighted.

  • Press the right button near the 'OK' until you see the last folder highlighted. You will know this is highlighted when you see the first menu option that says 'Language'. The 3rd one down from that says 'Clear Settings'.

  • Press the down button under the 'OK' until 'Clear Settings' is highlighted, then press the 'OK' button.

  • Scroll up to your choice and press 'OK' to reset your Canon 400D back to default factory settings.
If that fails, back to Canon! - good luck
