Question about Olympus SP-350 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera gets vertical lines in the viewer, then freezes

This happened to me when I first used it, so I thought it might be a bad card or battery, so I changed both. However, the problem has re-occurred. I put in a fresh CRV-3 battery, then tried with fresh AA's and used two different xD cards. Still have the problem. Please help because I need to get the pictures off the card and don't want to have to buy a card-reader and it happens when trying to download.

    The lines appear on the screen spontaneously. When the lines appear, all camera function stops.

    I will double-check, but I don't thinkit is the case that the grid lines are enabled. The lines are only vertical lines. The lines are not solid, but look more like the pixels in the column are being scrambled. It starts with one line, then others continue to show up in no particular order until the display also freezes. Once one of the lines shows up none of the camera functions work and the only way to restart the camera is to remove the battery.

    When you take a picture, do the lines appear on the screen?

Try to use you camera to format the card maybe it will be get better, else you can use a card reader to read the card and see if it's all right, or you can try to use the card with other cameras and see if it's OK. It seems your card you have used well for some time, so it won't be the wrong card type. Else you have to check if the card is one of the types which your camera support

Need to replace the video card on dell dimension 8300 computer. Monitor has vertical lines on it. Changed the monitor - same thing happens. If you hit the top of the tower, it will stop with the lines...


seems like you might need to replace the video card. If you have any spare compatible card that you can use i would test it with that. If not you can find one for about $50-$199 depending on specifications at most retail stores or online.

hope this helps.

I have vertical lines on screen I have changed the whole screen assembley but lines are still thers , exactly in same place


Hey There,

The reason this happens is because the graphics card is either loose burned out or jsut needs to be cleaned... to clean it use a pencil rubber in the gold tips that connect it, blow on the card to remove any dust build ups and reconnect the graphics card when done (make sure its clipped in properly).... different brands of computers will do different things such as the different coloured lines and screens flashing red. My dell latitude 630 had green and blue verticle lines. Just follow what i said and it should be fine

Hope this will help you in Resolving the issue with the vertical Lines on the screen.

Cheers!!!!!

Camera Keeps freezing/turning off


Sounds like the camera is writing to the CF card. If this is after taking several shots, even worse in continuous mode. That's why it won't shut off or anything, it has to finish that before it will shut down. If you have access to one try a different card. Remember to reformat it in this camera. Page 38 of your manual. If that works for you take the card into a camera shop and ask them if they will do a low format a newer camera like a XSi, then reformat it in your camera again before you use it.

Vertical lines while recording Canon zr100 camcorder


I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.
