SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old

I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

SOURCE: Camera malfunction

I had a Nikon Coolpix L1 with a very similar fault- the lens would whirr in and out as if seeking then lock either in or out with a 'lens error' message.
Not sure you're going to like the solution: place a paperback book on a strong table, grasp your precious camera firmly in one hand and slam its flat base down as hard as you dare onto the book. Hold it hard to the book as it touches, don't hit and lift up again; more slam effect.
I tried this and it worked beautifully; for a few months. I had to do it once or twice a year.
I got the suggestion from a site similar to this with 10 or so astonished owners who had tried it and couldn't believe it had worked so well!

Aren't digital cameras ****, though? I may go back to 2nd hand 35mm SLR for something that actually works!

Olympus stylus 1030 SW purchased in 2008 won't download to my Windows 7 computer


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). 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 management program such as Picasa:

Can i use it witout battery charger


Hello sai,

Of course you can use your camera without the battery charger but when the batteries empty then you will need to purchase batteries which is a lot waste of money. When purchasing rechargeable batteries the charger comes free.

Hello, I have a digital camera olympus 1030sw. If I set the camera to flash, there are times that it will flash but most of the time it won't. What would I do to solve the problem?


Hi,

it would be very hard to say what could be the reason behind this. But however you can check if the battery is charged correctly or you can change the battery cells to see the difference.

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

I've cleaned and even bought a new card after the camera insisted i clean the card and it still continues to make that instruction even on the newly purchased card


that camera uses an XD card ... its kinda hard to do but look inside the camera card slot (a single LED flashlight can help) and see if there is a bent contact .. look for contamination like a sliver of paper or a hair that might be keeping a contact from connecting to the card .. if your camera is in warranty then that should be covered ..

Batteries


Hi,
I've actually had this problem myself.

Use NiMh bateries - and a standard plug-in charger for them. It works out cheaper than "proper" batteries for the camera, which is just a moulded block version of the same thing.

The camera monitors the battery level - and expects the results from NiMh. Stick to the mid range Ah, as the larger ones also cause problems.
