    Thanks - I can't connect at the moment to a computer, but can view old pictures from the memory card.



    Whilst the display shows old pictures, when i switch to the camera mode it does not display any image, and is black..any other thoughts?



    Cheers

Get into the main menu and look for the reset to the factory setting s...and do it ..If it has an odd setting or mode..this will get it back ...if after that it still do not takes any pictures in visible mode...it means that something is wrong with it physically ..and you have to get it to a repair shop or send it back if it is in warranty ..
Also if it has a manually switch for modes..you have to put in in normal mode...cause the manual button can not be reset by the digital action ..

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

The new photos are displayed black right? Try to open the pics via computer and check if it's still black. If it's not then the playback display on the cam is faulty. This is surely an internal hardware related problem. On hand diagnostic by the service center is really recommended to know what part must be replaced.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hey my Olympus 230 digital camera seems to have deleted my photos, a message appeared on the camera "picture error", just wondering how I can get them back??


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

How do you take black and white pictures on the Olympus X-875 Digital Camera?


Sorry, but the X-875 doesn't have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program should allow you to convert any color photo to black&white. Doing so on a computer is generally better than letting the camera do it, as you have much better control over brightness, contrast, and other settings.

Changing memory settings


the camera allows for 8 pics to be taken using its internal memory (IN). If you want to be able to get more images than that you can purchase an xD picture card that gets inserted to the camera that will allow for more images to be taken and stored. The camera more than likely supports 1gb or 2gb capacities of xD cards.

It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Olympus SP-320 memory full when 1GB xD picure card in camara


    If you download the photos that are on the internal memory to your computer, the next time you take photos it should go to the memory card that is loaded. It worked for me, so I hope that helps
