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.

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 $103.85 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.

Try removing the battery or reseting the unit if there is a reset button. Otherwise it sounds like the screen died.

Do you have a card reader for the memory card in your camera?

If so, please remove the card from the camera and insert it into the card reader. If the lines are still threre then it's the CCD unit in your camera. Otherwise it's the interface cable.

Kodak easyshare DX 7630 screen black in take a picture mode but is fine in review etc


Hey Wistra,
You could try resetting your camera to the factory settings by choosing the reset to default setting in the menu. If this doesn't work the sensor on the camera is most likely broken, and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera was purchased less than a year ago the repair would most likely be covered under manufacturers’ warranty. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Stopped taking pictures . . .


When previous pictures display fine but does not take new one directs the problem to camera mode problem. Some component is at fault in the main board which controls menu functions and display is damaged. For the solution, the main board is repaired or replaced by technician. The repair cost may run between $100 to $200 in US.
