Question about Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera

Green colour showing through photos??

Hello :)
I have a new olympus 790SW and am noticing in most photos there are green colours (usually on the edge of something - like the outline of people or things).

Have tried a few different photo options so this doesn't happen but can't seem to find a solution....

Any advice would be great - not sure if I am doing something wrong or if the camera is faulty.

Thanks :)

    I am having the same exact problem, only mine also has lighter vertical lines running through all my pictures. I am thinking about just returning the darn thing. I have only had it for about a week. I am pretty disappointed.

    Hi BuellersMom,

    Thanks for the info. I think mine was well and truely dead though much like yours. I sent it to the Olympus repair centre and they are waiting on parts to fix it. Not very happy either as mine had problems as soon as I bought it .... this is my 2nd Olymus now that I haven't been happy with.

    Will try another brand next time!! ha ha.

    Thanks again & best of luck hunting for a new camera :)

Okay I called Olympus and they told me to try to reset the camera. I know you have tried using the reset option already from the meun, but apparently if you open the battery door, leave it open and hold down the Menu button and the okay button at the same time, it will (as the olympus guy called it) do a hard reset. This should restore the screen back to what he refered to as the factory settings. After you do that shut the battery door, and turn the camera off. Then turn it back on and you should be in business. it didn't work for me, but that is because mine was apparently sold to be after it was the floor model ( I had no clue). I have since returned it for a full refund. I thought I would pass on that the olympus help support people said.

Picture is OK, but colors are off and there is a blue star background that shows on dark colors.

Hello, With most rear projections there is usually an alignment to do with the set up with your TV. This is so the red, blue and green projectors align together to give the correct colouring. This sounds to me what may be causing the outlining of the blue. This can also make it seem off colour. Look in the set up menu of the tv and see if you can find this alignment feature. Usually a cross will appear and you move a blue, red, and green cross with the arrows on your remote to align over the original white one. If this does not work, it may also mean that one of your projectors, that is the red, blue or green one may be failing causing the off colouring. Hopefully this alignment may fix it for you.

White turns to green

Check the white balance settings. You may have accidentally altered them to "fluorescent light" settings.

Incorect line of colour from one edge to the other

I am presuming the rest of the page prints the correct colour and this is an area in the direction of feed that is missing yellow. Try swapping the yellow and magenta drum positions and then the green text should come out a very dark blue colour. if it does then the fault is with the YELLOW drum, if there is still a noticeable Cyan stripe still then the fault will be with the LED head or engine control board.

Colour photo printing has a green tinge

This could be one of many things.
Monitor Calibration to Printer.
Camera green Bias
And good many more
The thing is not to print direct from camera , but to use an image editor to colour correct.
A free simple one is Googles free Picasa.
Otherwise there are many more some free a lot to be paid for.
As always there is a learning curve.

It sounds like your light engine needs replaced, should be around $400.-600. depending on who does it. I have seen the lamp cause similar symptoms but not that likely.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
F303, F410, and F700
