First, make sure the batteries are fresh and installed correctly. Turn on the camera, if you get an opening screen, your camera should be OK. Press the menu button and navigate to screen options where you should be able to turn on the screen to take pictures.

If there is no opening screen when you turn on the camera (and you are sure the batteries are good and in properly), then try to take some pictures without the screen. If the camera takes good pictures, then the screen is dead. You can continu to take pictures with it in this condition. I do not think they are worth fixing, though.

If the camera does not take good pictures or no pictures then the camera has failed or dead. Your best solution is to replace the camera with a newer, better one, More pixels, greater optical zoom, quicker start time and so on.

Blank display for olympus stylus fe-5030


Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screen viewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Olympus service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

Just got olympus sp-800uz but get 2 black lines down side screen can i make it full screen


Are you talking about the camera's LED screen, or your computer monitor screen?
Anyway, the Olympus SP-800uz camera has 4:3 image sizes and widescreen 16:9.
Just set your camera to the size you need to get your images shown fullscreen.
An alternative is to use a graphic (or tool) program that is able to crop your images.

No display


Hi,

This is a common problem. his is either due to faulty CCD sensor or faulty LCD screen. Look at the previous recorded images or videos. If you see the same black problem in previous saved images or video's , it would be suggestive of LCD screen unless it is a faulty CCD sensor.

If that is LCD panel, it is not worth repair.If that is CCD sensor, then you could call up Olympus to check whether CCD sensor of your model is under recall or not.

Read an old article :-

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

If it is not under recall, try to get some good replacement or repair at low cost unless invest in new camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!

Press the menu button and navigate to screen option and make sure it is on. If nothing shows up when you press the menu button, the screen may be defective.

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...


Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Adding the date to pictures


Curiously, the first pictures I took with camera had the date stamp on the pics so somehow the date did appear but probably disappeared when the batteries were changed.
