Question about Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

2 Answers

When I turn the camera on it beeps then nothing happens. I can review the pic's taken, but no other functions work not even the protective lens. Tech support said it was the battery, but I'm not sure that's the problem because the camera said it is full.

Did you ever fix your problem? I am also having the exact same problem and not sure what to do. I know that the battery is full, so I don't think it's that. Would love to hear how you fixed your!

The problem you describe is frequently due to weak/wrong batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Make sure that you have the correct battery type in the camera, and that they are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, remove the batteries and wipe the inside contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe the ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This clears up the problem about 90% of the time -- I hope it works for you.

Camera has charged batteries. at first when i turned on power...nothing happened...then...later...i pressed power again and it came to life. the lens popped out and i took a bunch of pics and reviewed...


@ alan o'brien, Samsung D53 digimax draws a lot of current from the battery thus, you need to replace your batteries with a HIGHER current ratings, sufficient enough to run the motor. This miniature motor inside the D53 camera drives the reduction gears functions, to extend and retract the mechanical lens. During this processes it is drawing a lot of current from the battery. In order to conserve and prolong battery power avoid zooming in and out, utilize the function speed 50-400 and manually adjust aperture to minimize the unnecessary use of flash. In other words, go manual mode. Here's the battery specs. 2800ma NiMH rechargeable battery. Refer and follow manufacturers recharging instructions for best result. Do not leave batteries inside the camera even when not in use because the circuit inside is still on the standby mode and not necessarily off. Hope i have satisfy your curiosity. If you can, kindly share with me some of your best photo taken from your D53 digimax. Thank you.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Cannot take picture


Check the switch on the side of the lens, it should be in "AF" not "M". The switch turns the motor in the lens on and off. If the switch is set to "M" the automatic mode on the camera will not work.

Dropped camera on wood floor, now it beeps when I press on but nothing happens. Telescopic lens does not close. Cannot see images or take pics.


Both of those are "lens errors". That's what happens when your lens has had damage done to it. The only way to fix it is to send it into repairs. Call repairs at 800-706-2534 option 2 and they can tell you where to send it.

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic


It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!
