Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera screen has gone black and blank, what is wrong?

HI there - I seem to be having the exact same problem that you did with your camera. One minute it was working just fine, I took a bunch of photos the night before, downloaded them to my computer the next morning, disconnected the camera from the computer and then all of the sudden I couldn't get anything to display on the screen when I tried turning it on later in the day. The camera goes on (and makes all its little noises) but the screen remains blank. Did you ever find a solution to your camera problem??

Please let me know, I'm desperate to fix it. Thank you so much, Annie

    since photos are coming fine there is less chance for ur camera to be fault.
    there must be some problem in display alone. if u r a expert and look for any bad connections that go to display.
    else take it some tech as soon as possible

When i try to take pictures/videos my camera comes up a blurry purple and black screen and when i hit record it comes up blank black what can i do? i have had this camera around 6 years


It sounds like the imaging sensor has gone given the age of the camera I would highly recommend replacing it.You can get a camera that is quite a deal better for around 60-80$.
thank you,

When taking photo, nothing appears on screen, when taking picture, flash works, but no picture appears


Your sensor (the device that absorbs light and transmits that data into a picture) has gone bad. Thats why all the photos seem to appear blank, but they are just black. It can be repaired and its usually the cheapest at a Canon center,but depending on the camera the fee is as much as getting a new camera. Sorry about your camera.

This Camera has an CCD issue. It seems that the CCD of the Camera is gone bad. However, you may try resetting the Camera to the factory settings. If the issue persists, try power resetting the Camera. To power reset, remove the battery of the Camera and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and reinsert the battery after one minute and check the operation. If the issue still persists, the service is required.

Kodak camera shows me a blank/black screen


You have a bad CCD imager. Find a repair shop that can strip a CCD from a camera with a bad lens. This is the least costly repair.

Olympus stylus 725 SW has gone blank


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $128.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Black viewing screen and blank pictures


Luckyfourme,
Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
Good luck and Congratulations on your Daughters upcoming Wedding!
