This sounds like a CCD issue in the camera. The CCD is the part in the camera that captures the image (the "digital film") if you will and converts it to a format the camera can read.

When they go bad a lot of times you will see weird colorations and/or stripes, very similar to what you are describing.
You can try eBay for a place to buy, or maybe check the manufacturer.

    Sure, no problem -
    The CCD is a hardware device that sits under the lens. The lens focus's the image, and the CCD will capture the image the lens will display.

    The CCD is pretty much customized PER camera model. Very rarely will you see CCDs that are interchangeable between camera models, let alone manufacturers'.
    That being said, if you can't find the CCD for your camera online, you are probably going to have to go through the manufacturer. Keep in mind they are generally not cheap. At that point you will have to make the decision whether it is beneficial for you to repair or replace the camera.

Olympus sp 500UZ digital camera: the camera eats batteries.


Yes. Like all rechargeable batteries they don't last forever and four years is longer than I'd expect.

Replace them with new batteries. You need a 3v lithium ion CR-V3 and if you're in the UK I highly recommend buying them from the Small Battery Company, but they are widely available. Avoid generic "no-name" brands as good quality examples are not very expensive.

Please rate my answer if I have answered your question satisfactorily.

Olympus sp-500 uz can I get the date on a photo


By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Olympus 550 UZ battery


you may want to use lithium batteries... i find the rechargeables in most cameras to not last as long... also you may need to clean the contacts in the battery compartment with alcohol and let air dry

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...


Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Conversion of LCD


Unfortunately such conversion is not possible. If the "vari angle" screen is an essential your best approach would be to dispose of the SP 550 UZ and buy another camera meeting your need. Sorry!

Lcd screen


That is an effect that can be had by internal software in the camera, like my Sony. Just get in there and turn off "negative" Youll probably see Sepia, solarize, B/W and negative as other choices.
