Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Orange LCD When I turn on the camera the LCD on the back of the camera is very orange to red in color, but I can see the display, menus, etc. After a few minutes everything seems fine. Is this a bad LCD or just a common issue with this model? If it is a problem will it get worse?

Could well be a bad backlight. There are replacement LCD assemblies on Ebay for under $45, and as a good working 5050 is worth $200 or so, it's worth doing.

With my d90 reds come out as orange how do i stop


My guess is that it's not the camera but it's your monitor calibration. Reds (especially brightly lit reds) are the most difficult to render on a monitor. I would try changing the Vivid color option on the camera as well as saturation and even the color space options to see if you get any variation. Also, consider looking into a monitor calibration utility. If you have a color printer, you can print an image that looks orange on your monitor to see if it prints the same way.

Some images 'cool' some 'warm'


Hi there,

That issue is related to "white balance". Sounds like the camera is not measuring white balance correctly in order to determine the best setting for each shot, and is flipping between correct and incorrect settings, even in the same conditions!

I could go into detail here, but really it is much easier and perhaps better explained with images on many websites. Here is one example:

As for a solution, well obviously the camera is not working as it should, but you could also try setting white balance manually if your camera allows it. The above site tutorial will give you an idea of how to do that and what setting to use.

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the...


It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona, and they will fix it for about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras. Contact me at: mrfixitmark at comcast dot net

If you are handy with very small parts, you can replace the display yourself, and you can buy them on eBay for about $25.

LCD Screen Black/Blank. ? ? ?


Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.

Black screen


DarrenC was absolutely right. The ribbon at the top of the case is the culprit. The little black connectors on the sides of the ribbon where it connects to the board did the trick. I've had this same problem for about 6 months. I had to push on the upper right hand corner of the camera with one hand while snapping a picture with the other hand. But it really is so simple, 1. seven screws, 2. top ribbon, 3. black connectors! I'm so excited, thanks TerryB and DarrenC.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
