Question about Olympus Cameras

My SP-510UZ stays on all the time. None of the functions work from on/off, menu,the lense stays out. I have tried removing the batteries, replacing with new batteries has no effect. I have removed the memory card that doesn't do anything either.

You might want to take it into a camera store or Best Buy and see if there is quick solution for it. If the buttons aren't working and removing the battery doesn't help reset then something else could be wrong with it and needs another set of eyes to look at it.

How to get camera to come on and stay on


Your camera may have a time-out function to preserve the battery. You'll need to go into the camera menu to change the time it stays on. Most cameras will give you a couple of options re time and on of them is 'turn off' Never or none.

Sony cybershot dsc-w330 functions buttons does not work


Remove the battery and the memory card, press and hold power for 60 seconds this should remove residual voltage and reset the processor ic, if there is no change the systems controller board has failed, cheaper to replace camera.

Function set don't function, and zoom in function even not press


The non-functioning of the camera can be a fault in the shutter, zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the failure of the Main control system or the drive. A simple was is to reset and we can try by removing the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck. You can spray a degreasing spray on the lens hood sides and also assist the lens as it tries to come out, attempt to pull it out slowly while powering ON the camera. Also in some cases you can slid a thin film/paper on the lens hood sides to wipe out any dirt.

Tips to open and check for common faults: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Mj3Qp3xYU&feature=related
Use some air to blow between the lenses to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must you try and open. If so check the voltage on the motor drive check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

I have fully charged the battery. Sometimes I can turn camera on and lense operates but no vision on screen and not able to take a photograph. but other times the lense will immediately retract. If lense...


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success

Regardless of lenses,and batteries, cf cards, flash and exposure settings, when the fire button is pressed there is a small "click" and the camera freezes-no picture none of the exposure settings...


A few suggestions: The mirror lock up function has been activated. The sensor cleaning mode has been activated, doing this the camera as soon as you trip the shutter the mirror will come up and all other functions of the camera are inoperable. the mirror will stay in that position until it runs out of battery or you turn it off. The part you said about having to removing the battery doesn't make scents for this function though. Sensor cleaning is in the Custom Functions.
I know you said regardless of lenses and batteries how long do you wait before shutting the camera off and removing the battery? I know that's a question and we aren't suppose to answer a question with a question but the reason I'm asking is that the Canon 40D has a long 30 second shutter speed and a "bulb" setting. It is possible that the camera has been set to "AV" and the shutter is timing out, OR it's been turned to BULB and that mirror will stay there until the camera battery is dead before it drops. Couple things to check out before the next thing I'd think about is the amount of shutter actuation. The Canon 40D has a shutter good for 100,000 clicks/actuation. Sounds like a lot but if you are doing time laps or extended video it's very possible to blow the shutter out of these.

SP 6000/PS6000E-207PK-EN Will not fire up. If press start, then LEDs flash Orange (1st left) 5 times then 2, then 1 and then repeats. 3rd LED (green) stays on. If battery is removed, start button pressed...


You got some short on board, You need techguy. Or possible Bios flash, Remove the Harddisk and press the power button.
If nothing change, Remove power, battery, cd rom, Hdd, memory.

Then put one stick of memory, power up, see anything comes up.If does, power off, put the other memory plug in power, fire up.
If does ok. Then plug off, and put hdd without CD rom. see if it did work.

If none is worked as I say you have short or CPU fan is not functioning.
Goodluck.

Try to format the memory card and permanently delete all data from the image card. Go to menu to setup and then to format option. The card should then be back to being able to store its maximum number of images depending on what size card it is.
