Question about Olympus Camedia C-760 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Olympus c-760 seems to have developed an issue whereby the camera will take one, maybe two photos if I'm lucky, before it tells me that the battery is empty and turning itself off. I can turn it straight back on and go again for one or two photos, over and over, until the battery is genuinely empty. I have two batteries and the problem occurs with both, even when fully charged. I have tried using the firmware updater on the Olympus website but the camera appears to be too old. Any ideas? Is it worth getting the camera repaired or should I just move on and invest in a new camera?

    Unfortunately there is no reset button. When you say button, do you mean the button to take a shot? I'll try cleaning the contacts and see if that helps, I didn't think of that.

Olympus all weather 760 errors 5f08 5f0a 5e02 Blue error message lens will not retract makes burring sound help please

The sound your camera is making, is probably the slipping from the gears, grinding them down, because something is blocked. Even when you can't see any blockage. Please don't leave the battery in, to avoid more damage. Contact a certified Olympus repair centre, or visit your dealer with the camera.

I have an olympus stylus 760. I cannot figure out how to turn on the time/date stamp...

While the camera stores the date (and a lot more) with every picture, it will not deface your pictures by scribbling a string of numbers across them. Any photo editing/cataloging program should show you this information. Depending on the program and printer, you can print this information on the image, in the margins, or on the back. For example, if you're printing directly from the camera you can turn on DATE under CUSTOM PRINT.

Olympus MJU 760 Battery dies after a couple of

First step to trouble shoot. Connect a low voltage ohm-meter to the battery contacts inside the camera. Try to turn camera on. If you get a reading, write down the number of ohms. If possible, compare this with a brand new one, if store will let you. Or call the USA distributor. If ohms number is way low, you have problems inside the camera. If number is normal, the battery is no good.

Olympus Stylus 760 digital camera

Found a solution by looking at other websites and other comments. I discovered that if I went to playback mode and then to card set up and found 'format' as long s I ahd copied and saved the photos actually on the camera, I could click on format which would give me a caution message and then say 'yes'. This erases all the photos but cured the problem!

Replacing screen on Olympus IR-500

I would suggest this is not going to be a viable task. at any level You taking it to pieces and then finding replacement parts. Contact Olypus for advice My guess is that a 'repair' will be near the cost of replaceing the camera. Photo stores [such as Jessops here in the UK] seel Screen protection material. this is like a heavy duty self adhesive tape- which can be cut to size for your screen. That I suggest is a low cost fix.
