Question about Olympus Stylus / mju 1050 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus 1050 SW completely unresponsive to any button

After taking underwater photos a couple of days ago, I left my camera turned off and when I went back I noticed that the red light was flashing. It's not responding to anything. I can't turn it on or off. When I slide the shutter it doesn't do anything. The screen just stays black and the light flashes. I don't know if I need to reboot the system or anything? Any help would be greatly appreciated as i'm travelling and really don't want to lose pics or be without a camera.

The lens may be stuck ... that is not coming out or not returning in either condition causes it to do something like that ,i.e blingink red light or an error code etc .... solution is that you'll need to open up the camera with a set of precission screw drivers and manually turn in or out the lens to start it back in operation either ways its a bit technical if you never did it before ....could be caused by moisture getting into the camera .....

It still amazes me how many people buy these cameras that are seemingly "waterproof" and eventually have the very same problems you are now having. The only true underwater camera is one in an underwater housing.

I have the same camera and has the same problem. Mine flooded twice and when I followed the normal dry it out, clean the seals, charge the battery, etc, etc... I was left with a camera that didn't work at all after the second flooding. I returned it to Olympus where they had to replace the motherboard and seals. My dive buddy also has the same camera, dived deeper and has had no problems with his flooding or fowling. Olympus was very good about fixing the problem and returning the camera quickly. If you get fixed or end up buying another underwater camera, I would recommend after each use underwater, especially in saltwater, cleaning the seals and applying very sparing amount of silicon gel on the seals. The gel will help protect the seals and add to the tightness of the seal. But, don't let it cake up in the camera. I use the gel to protect o-rings on underwater video camera housing seals and have had no problems with leaking. You can get the gel at most SCUBA or hardware stores.

How to use the panoramic function in my olympus 1050 SW.


I won't say it's in the manual.

Turn the selector to the square "camera" icon (just above AUTO).

Press the Menu button, select Panorama. Choose Combine In Camera 1.

Point your camera at the left or right side of whatever you are taking the picture of and press the shutter button. A flashing icon appears with arrows pointing left-and-right. Pan the camera left or right (your choice) as if to take the next shot in the panorama ... a blinking diamond appears and then a square box - keep moving the camera until the diamond enters the square box, the camera will automatically take the next photo. Move the camera again in the same direction, another diamond and square box appear and the photo is automatically taken as before.

To take another panorama shot, repeat this entire procedure, beginning with the Menu selection.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Downloading Photos


Remove the Olympus software.
Let Windows find them with the Camera/Scanner Wizard.
It is likely the laptop has not the memory resources to receive all the photos in one hit so try in batches of 10 or so.
