Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

How do I fix my Olympus VG-120? It freezes while recording video and taking pictures. What could be causing this?

I have tried changing the battery and memory card, but it continues no matter what. Sometimes, the camera works just fine, but it happens quite often. Also, it doesn't matter how hot or cold the temperatures are.

Memory cards have different write speeds. When making a video it's best to use a series 10 card. This number has nothing to do with the capacity of the card but does have a faster read/ write speed.

    I already use a class 10 memory card. What happens is that the camera will freeze while I'm taking a picture or recording video. The only way to unfreeze it is to take the battery out and put it back in.

    If the camera is still under warranty then go to Olympus's site to open a repair ticket. They can give you an estimate if it's not in warranty.

How can i fix my OLYMPUS 170 DIGICAM. It won't open and won't work also


See page 12. Using the computer it can take up to 10 hours to charge. I would remove the battery and charge in a separate charger. The Olympus cameras have been exceptionable for me. In the over 110K photos I have taken with mind I have gone through several batteries.

Caution it suggests not taking pictures with the AC adapter connected. However it says you can review.

Hope this has helped?

I have an Olympus VG-120. How do I physically update the firmware on my Olympus VG-120 camera? Thanks.


Do you have your user guide or owner's manual? Read that thoroughly and you will have no problems. If you don't, get one from the manufacturer - search their website and download.

Driver for olympus vg-120/d-705


You don't need a driver.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Olympus vg-120 write protect


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

You don't need any special software.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery on Windows.
