Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When I turn on my Olympus FE-230 it goes directly to a Card Setup screen. My only options are to "Power Off" (turns off camera), or "Format" (deletes pictures). Should I get a new memory card, or is the camera itself jacked up?

Get a card reader and download the pics to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera.

    Is there anything I can do do without having to buy a card reader? I'd like to be able to use my camera soon and to just use the cord to the computer to put pics on there.

My Olympus FE-230 has a problem. when i turn it on with a memory card, it shows me two options: reset card or turn off camera. I've done both and it still doesn't work. it is working only with the internal...


If you have pics on the internal memory, you must get rid of them first. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, do the same thing with the new card in the camera.

When power is turned on the card setup screen pops up. The only 2 options are to power off or format. If I select format, the pictures will be erased if yes is selected.


Memory card seems imbalanced due to some reason and can only be corrected by formatting as advised in camera pop up.
Of course all picture files will be deleted if card is formatted. Try to put card in card reader and back up files in computer.

When camera card is displaying full, how to I access pics to delete and make more room?


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the card and it can be used again.

Olympus FE-210 Camera Problem


Well, I had same issue and call the crapus support and they told me to format it. That is solution they recommend. it happen to me three times already had a camera less than 2 month. Well time to sell crapus and get me a real camera, I had Nikon and Canon almost 8 years and never had issue with memory card. I was stupid to take chance on crapus, by the way if you are not using none olympus brand memory card you are out of luck, they do not support.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
