    I have the same exact promblem

  • Jeffroski Aug 17, 2008

    I have the same issue. I tried the reset button...but no luck. I checked Olympus' website for troubleshooting ideas but none of them address this issue. Has anybody tried calling the manufacturer?

    I'm having the same problem. I think it's a setting that had to be accidently pushed. My 2 year old is constantly getting a hold of my camera. I can tell by the lack of answers that it's not easy to fix? By reading the rest, I think I need a different camera.

    I have the same exact problem! I went to the camera store where i bought it from but they couldn't help me out..

    Has anyone found any solutions?

    I have the same problem too! I can't seem to format the card or ANYTHING. I can't get to the settings... NOTHING. Just time and date. VERY ANNOYING. I too, think some sort of setting was accidentally pressed. Because now i even have big yellow numbers telling me how many photos I have left (which weren't there before this problem started).

    STILL no one knows anything?

    Same here. Sounds like a glitch with the camera.

Remove the card and blow compressed air in the chamber in order to clean any dust that may have gotton onto the card's contacts.

Also, try to reset the camera from the menu if it has this option.

If you can't use flash on burst mode, then this is not a solution.

I have a new memory card. I cant get pictures

Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 1 GB)

The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.

You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Need to put Pictures from Camera onto Memory Card

Hi there. Here is how you do it. Go into the menu and navigate to the Copy screen. Choose an option. One is to copy pictures from the camera's internal memory to the SD card, and the other is copy from the SD card to the camera's internal memory. Then press OK. On the next screen, you have two option choices, either copy all images, or selected images. Hope that helps.

Cant unlock a picture

If you want them to be permanently deleted you can format the memory card and this will clear the card of all data. If you just want these certain images deleted then you need to be in Playback mode - press the Menu button - go to Playback menu and press Ok - then choose the key option and turn it from ON to OFF. This will remove the lock and allow you to erase the selected image.

Screen appears faulty

With switched on try pressing the camera casing around the edges of the screen. This may be a loose connector and squeezing the camera casing may rectify it - then may perhaps it will not. Try the menu button If it comes up look for the Reset function. Carefully look in the manual in case there is an error correction method. Failing all that Get onto the Samsung web site Technical Help.
