I am getting stripes across my picture when I use my digital camera. How can I fix this problem? I have an Olympus Camedia c-5050 digital zoom


IF the stripes are on the pic and not in the monitor, your CCD is failing. It is made of many horizontal and vertical traces, the Vertical traces usually go and are a thin red line. If the lines are fatter than 1 pixel, then your CCD is exhibiting moisture ingress that is common with this camera and it is not repairable due to parts no longer made unless you want to replace the CCD chip on the daughterboard yourself.

Got a new ALBA 16WHDF TV SERIAL NUMBER 6624179 CRACKED THE SCREEN WHEN PUTTING ON SHELF. STILL WORKING. CAN A NEW SCREEN BE BOUGHT


The screen is unfortunately not replaceable as a spare part. It will continue to work until the damage grows from the inside of the screen. Unless you were lucky enough not to have cracked the protective inner screen, it will stay fine.

You made the same big mistake I made, we bought an Olympus Digital Camera! I have the same problem with my Olympus C-5050, it's the CCD sensor. Will cost you more than $200, and if your camera is over a year, you pay.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).

Battery life expectancy


The D-535Z uses two AA batteries, and Olympus includes alkalines in the box. Unfortunately those won't last long and will end up in the trash. So I recommend buying a four pack of NiMH rechargeables (plus a charger), which gives you a set for the camera plus a spare. Unfortunately Olympus doesn't publish any battery life statistics for the D-535, so I can't give you any exact numbers. It depends a lot on how much you use the flash and LCD screen. Don't leave the screen on all the time, use it sparingly and you should find an increase in shot numbers. BMW
