I think the problem you have is that the shutter speed is too fast. make the shutter speed slower and try taking photos.

Camera Olympus SP- 510UZ: while turning the machine at the screen appears "card setup", has 2 options "power off " and "format". I want to see the photos and is not possible....


remove the card and place it in a regular computer card reader. most Olympus used to use XD so if yours is XD make sure the card reader supports it. Otherwise it wil be an SD that most readers can handle.

Copy your pictures off the card and whilst it is still in the computer FORMAT it using FAT or FAT32

Once bak in the camera it should be good to use again.

If Not then the card has a fault and you mayneed to replace it.

I have an Olympus SP-510uz digital camera. While trying to on camera, there is an error showing on display screen. It says "Zoom Error". The zoom lens is also stuck, as it is not working. I have...


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Constant blue/purple screen on Olympus SP-500uz


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.
http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

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 $151 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.

You might want to take it into a camera store or Best Buy and see if there is quick solution for it. If the buttons aren't working and removing the battery doesn't help reset then something else could be wrong with it and needs another set of eyes to look at it.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh


Try to format the memory card and permanently delete all data from the image card. Go to menu to setup and then to format option. The card should then be back to being able to store its maximum number of images depending on what size card it is.
