As far as I am aware, you can use the viewfinder OR the live view, but not both at the same time.

This is because a mirror has to flip up out of the way to reveal the sensor for the live view to work, and the mirror needs to be in the down position to reflect the image into the viewfinder.

Switch between the two modes and double-check if there is a problem.

Also try removing the lens from the camera and checking the position of the mirror. It could be that it has got stuck in the up osition.

Hope this helps!

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.


Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

Olympus E520 digital slr. Only auto setting is working? On other settings, live-view goes dark(?).


SLR cameras are meant to be used with the viewfinder, not live view. Live View on SLR's is a luxury that point and shoot users have come to expect, sadly. I suggest you start using the viewfinder and disregard the live view altogether, since it doesn't always give you an accurate representation of what the photo will turn out like, and it consumes battery power at a ridiculous rate.

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.

Am I only able to look thru the viewfinder?


Unfortunately, most digital SLRs including the D40, do not include a 'live view' function that is found on all digital compact cameras.

This means that you will not be able to view the shot on the screen until it has been taken and there is no setting that will allow you to do so. Currently only Olympus SLRs include live view.
