Try using regular batteries. I did with my camera and seems I can go a lot longer on the regular batteries verses the re-chargable ones

Image sensor


If the problem is dust, you can try to blow it away. Else, take the camera to a repair shop, the sensor is very sensitive and can easily be destroyed...
Good luck! :)

There seems to be some kind of short and the camera runs thru batteries like crazy. I also need the cable that connects the camera to the commuter to transferphotos.


try replace your battery with a Lithium Ion, better if you bring your camera to best buy, walmart or circuit city show them your camera then look for the kind of battery i mentioned.

for the USB cable to transfer files, once you are in the store, look for a USB cable that loks like the on int the picture, this should not cost you more than $5

Hi Ive got an Olympus SP-550UZ digital Camera


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. "Zoom error" is repairable
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

My olympus sp-550uz will not take a picture on Auto, but does take video and will take pics on the "My" setting. Also some pics have green tint to them now. This happened after changing batteries


I don't think the battery caused this problem.
Try a known fresh set of batteries, then go into the camera settings and do a "restore to factory default"
option. And, re-format the memory. If you are using a memory card take it out. Take out or put in AFTER camera has been turned off by the way. Hope that helps.

Problems with camera


Hi everyone,

I found you because 10 minutes ago, my camera exhibited the same behavior as all yours. All of a sudden, the red and green lights started blinking on and off and nothing worked. I just tried switching batteries and the camera is working! I am using a couple of RCR-V3 Li-ion rechargeable batteries, which I purchased on Ebay three months ago. Thought I'd pass it on.

Take care,

Rosane.

It Needs a Lithium battery- only lithiums have the density to cope with the demand - no need to buy expensive Olympus Originals
Try www.sevendayshop.com for starters
Plenty  of sellers out there.
