Question about Olympus EVOLT E-510 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have the Olympus E-510. I haven't used it for a while but I have recently had a baby, so I've pulled it out from its hiding spot. The problem is, when I look through the viewfinder it's all blurry and I cannot get it to focus, however when I actually take the photo it comes out clear as day! It's really weird. So the autofocus is working, it just wont focus through the viewfinder! It's very frustrating..can someone help me please!! Thank you :)

First make sure that the viewfinder glass is clean. If that is not the problem, it may be that the diopter adjustment has been accidentally changed. On the right side of the viewfinder screen is a very small knob. This adjusts the focus of the viewfinder to your vision. Aim your camera at a stationary object and let the camera auto focus. Look throught the viewfinder and turn this knob one click at a time until the image is clearest to you. Hope this helps.

I got a small grease spot on a silk dress - what is the best way to remove it


If you haven't washed it yet, lay the dress flat and pour baby powder, not corn starch, but real baby powder on the grease spot and let sit overnight or a day or two if necessary. When you shake powder off the dress and launder normally the grease should be gone. Air dry to make sure the grease is gone before drying normally. Baby powder works miracles on grease! Good Luck!

Camera or battery problem?


Sounds like a battery problem. When a rechargeable battery is allowed to completely discharge from non-use, it usually will not come back.

I am noticing a spot on photographs taken by olympus E-510


I'm guessing dust on the sensor. Google SLR sensor cleaning and you'll get full instructions on how to proceed. It's not difficult but you'll need to buy a few supplies.

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...


Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.


I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.

If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Best,

JP
