This seems to be a loose connection which in the past worked by a good bump, but it is completely apart now. the first thing you have to do is to physically examine for an loose connection or burned black marks on the chip board. Check this link for help. http://www.vintage-camera-repair.info/general_dissy.htm
If this camera is in warranty i recommend you, not open the camera and take it to the service center.

Thanks

My screen stays black, even though I can see old pictures, can record video (only the audio works) and upload my photos.


Could be a problem with the LCD screen viewer or CCD Image sensor go to bad. In both cases 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.

Good luck.

Tip

Should we treat a digital camera like an egg?


I wish I had a penny, for each time I read about somebody having a stuck lens problem, or it won't go out, or in, or the zoom doesn't work right. And I know their pain, but we have to learn from that experience so that we don't repeat it. This tip isn't meant to call anyone careless, but rather emphasize why taking care not to damage a digital camera is the difference between enjoying taking pics, or trying to figure out a "free fix" on the internet. I'm not a camera tech, per se, but I've taken a couple of them apart, and I was impressed and amazed by their complexity. Leaving out the main boards and controls, I will concentrate on the composition of the lens assembly. It's a complex assembly consisting of electronic circuit controls, electro-magnetic focusing magnets, 5 very small, plastic gears, and various plastic parts. Imagine the lens is extended. The gears have driven it to the predetermined spot the microprocessor told it to go to. The gears are all engaged, ready to "pull" the lens back in, when the camera is turned off, but alas, Uncle Jack absentmindedly sits on the couch, where, unfortunately, the camera is setting. Something has to give, but it's not Uncle Jack's er, well, you get the message. Sometimes, the gears just jam, sometimes they break.
So back to the original question, and the answer is pretty much yes, inasmuch as possible. When you shoot pictures, wear the wriststrap to help you catch the camera in case it slips, you get bumped, etc. I've dropped my Olympus FE-310 about 3 times from a height of 3 feet, and it's still good to go, so they are tough, to a point. Although some experts in the field criticize hard cases (they claim the fibers can wear in them and get into the lens assembly, jamming it up, and maybe they can), I think it's wise to have one, weighing all circumstances. If you have a soft case, or no case, and it's in a pocket, purse, or coat or backpack, the power button can get accidentally pressed, and any restriction to the opening of the lens can damage the assembly, and render the camera useless. Also, one fair bump on the glass LCD display, and it's broken.
So to sum it up, should we treat a digital camera like an egg? The answer is "inasmuch as we can". Accidents will, unfortunately happen, but limiting them will help ease the burdon they have on our wallets!

The same condition appears when you transfer this pics at PC ? If yes, and the problem continue, first... could be a problem with the LCD viewer screen, or, if not, coudl be the CCD image sensor go to bad; in both cases 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 bought a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 camera 4 weeks ago. About 2 weeks ago the screen developed a bright white spot along the one corner- the display would not show in that area. I didn't do anything...


If you turn off the LCD screen and use the viewfinder, same problem? Even with this wrong, are you try to take pics and see this in your pc? They are white or with some lines over image?

Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could a problem CCD sensor go to bad; in both cases 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.
