    Same exact problem. Geek's squad suggestion to reset per page 24 is not accessible and only applys to Image Quality (not an available option in setup menu when in playback mode). Reaching out to Olympus for warranty service.

    Same problem and camera beeps several times.   Very annoying.  Will take it into Best Buy tomorrow to send out.

Hey brucers,
One thing you could try is resetting the camera to the default settings. Directions on how to do this are on page 24 of your camera manual and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual incase you need it. If this doesn't I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and if the camera does require a repair it would most likely be covered under the cameras manufacturers warranty. To find a service center you could call the manufacturer, or you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Olympus stylus 1030 SW purchased in 2008 won't download to my Windows 7 computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa:

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

My Olympus 1030sw is 8 months old and I took it


Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.

Lens cover stuck open. Can't take photos but can review old ones.


I have the same problem. Have you come across a solution? It's definately my lens and not my battery. Where did you go to get the lens looked at and repaired?

Outside shutter cover will not open


The only thing I can recommend is to manually push the cover open. But, it will probably stay that way, and not close.
