You will probably have to update/upgrade the firmware. Go to the Olympus website and search for the latest firmware version of the camera and download to your PC. You can then install it into your phone.

You can first try a hard reset..Remove the batteries and SD card, wait a few minutes and replace with fresh batteries and see if this helps. you can also try tapping a side of the camera on the palm of your hand to try and dislodge the lens..

Hope that helps.

How do you take pictures on sd card instead of inernal memory on Stylus 7010?


With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" (called "initialize" on some cameras) and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then insert your card and enjoy.

My memory card on the Stylus 410 digital is full. I have downloaded all photos and would like to erase the entire memory card. How?


Hi,

Do you have a manual? Here is a link to the manual:

Olympus Stylus 410 Manual

You have to navigate through the menu to get to the ALL ERASE or FORMAT selection.

MODE MENU>>>CARD>>>CARD SETUP>>>ALL ERASE or FOMAT

When you turn the camera ON and press OK, you will get the "first menu". Press the right arrow to enter the Mode Menu. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the above item. Once on ALL ERASE or FORMAT, press OK.


Also, here is a quick start guide:

Olympus 410 Quick Start Guide

Scroll down to Section 5 for instructions.

You can save the manuals to your hard drive for future use once opened.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I delete photos from my olympus digital camera?


You need to display the photos in the camera, and there must be a button on the back which enables you to erase pictures (look for a wastepaper basket icon). If you have downloaded all the pictures it is much better to reformat the card. This clears everything off the card and resets it. You need to go into the menu and search through it to find the format card option.

Cannot erase all


Is the camera reading the card correctly? If you can see all of the photos in slideshow view, then it should be ok. You can go to Format instead of going to delete to delete all of the photos. Simply format the memory card. It is an option in the camera menu.

Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840


Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.

Cant unlock a picture


If you want them to be permanently deleted you can format the memory card and this will clear the card of all data. If you just want these certain images deleted then you need to be in Playback mode - press the Menu button - go to Playback menu and press Ok - then choose the key option and turn it from ON to OFF. This will remove the lock and allow you to erase the selected image.

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
