In the manual on page 27 you can find what settings and how the settings can be set back to the factory settings.
Because of the icons, you better read the menial than read my descriptions of the icons.
Link to the camera manual for download.

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.

We are having difficulty with the p mode on our olympus sp800 uz. Photos are coming out grainy with streaks of light through them. can anyone recommend basic settings?


1. First, do the RESET through the menu (Settings1). See userguide page 42.
It restores several important settings to default, when having trouble.

2. When this does not help enough, you might want to do the factory hard reset.
Pull out the usb cable and battery, and left the camera for a few days.
After that, put in the battery and do the initialization, setting the camera date
and time, time zone and display language etc. See userguide page 11.

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

Olympus FE-140 ok except that flash does not work


Make sure you try and reset the camera to the factory default settings. There may be a setting that you are using that has disabled the flash functionality. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - press the menu button - left arrow to reset and press ok - you will see reset yes or no - highlight yes and press ok - camera will be back in factory settings - see if flash is able to work now.
