Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Open Question

Pictures of people have halo effect/double vision

My camera worked perfectly until this summer. Then pix started coming out almost in silohuette, with pinks or an outline effect. I had been trying to use the Red Eye feature so I thought maybe I changed a setting by mistake. The problem has persisted and people now come out almost double vision with a halo effect.
Can this be fixed or is it a setting?

SOURCE: Camera will take picture, but when viewed they are a strange colour.

This sounds like the first signs of CCD sensor malfunction. If this is correct it will get worse and pretty shortly you will have no image at all in capture mode. Have a new sensor installed and camera will work fine.( btw this is a common fault effecting all makes of digital cameras and v-cams ).

RMA if under warranty. If not call a qualified shop for a quote.

SOURCE: Whats wrong?

1) Reset the camera
2) Turn it off and remove the batteries.
3) Try to turn it back on without the batteries, to drain any
residual energy within the internal capacitors.

4) Check the battery terminals for any dirt or corrosion,
scrape clean if necessary.

5) Check the batteries, or better yet, get new ones
and put them back in.

6) Turn the camera back on to see if it woks.

7) Try a different memory card.

If that does not fix it, you may need to take it to
a professional repair shop who are equipped to
service this model.

Get an estimate first, to make sure its worth it.
Digital cameras get better with time and lose value
very quickly.

Why is my summer baby monitor fuzzy on night vision?


I would say that your IR sensors are burning out. Turn the lights off and look at the camera. A bunch of small red lights should be coming on . You will see which ones and how many are burned out. There are a couple of fixes but the cheapest will be a new camera.

Red discoloration coming across the television


The Y-Sustain PCB is Failing.

It will require replacing soon.

The PCB does have some adjustment pots on it, if you were to take the TV to a repairer they may be able to "adjust" the halo effect out.

But the board will still fail.

Nikon wont download pix


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer.

Hannah Montana Camera, says there are no pictures on camera to download


Depending on your operating system the downloader program may not work.

1. Open 'My Computer' or 'Computer' on Vista and connect the camera to the PC.
2. Watch the screen for a new "Removable Disk" to appear.
3. Double click on the "Removable Disk".
4. Double click on the folder "DCIM".
5. Pictures will be located in the listed sub-folder. This should be named "100IMAGE".

You can then drag and drop or cut and paste them into the My Snapshots folder located in My Pictures.

Cant download photos?


My daughter just received one of these camera's for her 6th birthday and is extremely excited. I am running Windows XP and was getting the "No pictures on camera" error. I tried downloading the drivers for this but that did not work. Here is what I did to get the camera working:

1) Connect the camera with the provided USB cable.
2) Download the latest driver from the Digital Blue web site: http://digiblue.com/customer-service/downloads/index.html, select the "The Disney Pix Micro Drivers for WIN ME, 2000, XP"
3) Install this driver, this will not enable the camera to work yet.
4) After this driver has installed, go to Control Panel
5) Select System
6) Select the Hardware tab
7) Select Device Manager
8) Find the device in the list (mine said "USB Digital Still Camera"), will probably have the yellow exclamation mark on it saying that it is not working.
9) Double click the device
10) Select "Reinstall Driver" from the General tab
11) When asked if Windows can connect to Windows Update to search for software, select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
12) Choose "Install the software automatically" and click Next.
13) You should get a message saying the driver for the "DB CIF Cam" has not passed the Windows Logo testing, select "Continue Anyway".
14) Click Finish.
15) The first time I did this, I needed to take a picture while the camera was connected to the PC.

After doing this I am able to download the pictures and everything works great. I hope this helps.
