Sounds like a hardware problem... You may have to take the camera to a dealer and have them check it out. However, try this first:
Leave the card out for a while, and recharge it. Then reset the camera to factory defaults is you can (check manual).
You may also want to check with the Olympus web site to see if you have the latest firmware update to your camera model. You could try and download latest version and install it.
Hope any of this is to some help... :)

SOURCE: Lcd screen

That is an effect that can be had by internal software in the camera, like my Sony. Just get in there and turn off "negative" Youll probably see Sepia, solarize, B/W and negative as other choices.

SOURCE: when turn on power on olympus stylus 710, the screen comes blank

Is it a WHITE screen? I had this problem with a 710 also.
It turns out that everyhting in the camera will still be perfect...except one thing---One or more of the conducting filaments in the ribbon connector (that bridges the electronics in the front and rear halves) will be found to have been broken, perhaps almost invisibly, at the fold in the ribbon.
At this point you own a "parts camera", and might get a few bucks for it on ebay. Sorry.

Sounds as if this is a repair issue with the image processing chip inside the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

SOURCE: 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.

White line on viewing screen


If the line is also on your photos it is a bad censor assembly, if the line is just on the LCD than the LCD is faulty. Either way you are looking at a trip to the repair shop.

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.

Olympus stylus 800 lens problem


Fair reasoning but I suspect incorrect.
The screen remaining black- do you mean that it shows no menu item either? or are you getting those but no image? clarify.
If you are getting nothing- is there a hint of 'shadow' images but not illuminated?
It nothing at all then this is an indication of a connector/ main board failure.
Lens not appearing could be the drive motor has stalled.
But the two items together could also mean something much easier to resolve- The battery[s] is not delivering enough power.
Clean the battery contacts. Make sure it is of the correct value as in the manual - if you have replaced it recently .
If that fails it may be new camera time as the likely cost of a repair will be high.
