Question about Olympus SP-500 UZ Digital Camera

Open Question

At 4am this morning my Olympus SP500UZ turned itself on and off half a dozen times. An alarm kept sounding and it tried to take photos with the flash going off but without it being up. When I took out the memory card and then replaced it, it stopped. Later when I had a look no actual photos had been taken. I've no idea what caused it.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

How to turn off alarm 2


I just kept pressing all the buttons dozens of times and the dumb alarm got turned off. I don't know why the solution was blocked in the first place. I was disguted with the lack of help I received when I turned to the internet, and one site actually wanted to know how much I was willing to pay them to tell me which button to press!! Bad PR for the company indeed!!
