Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

I am getting stripes across my picture when I use my digital camera. How can I fix this problem? I have an Olympus Camedia c-5050 digital zoom


IF the stripes are on the pic and not in the monitor, your CCD is failing. It is made of many horizontal and vertical traces, the Vertical traces usually go and are a thin red line. If the lines are fatter than 1 pixel, then your CCD is exhibiting moisture ingress that is common with this camera and it is not repairable due to parts no longer made unless you want to replace the CCD chip on the daughterboard yourself.

I CAN NOT TRANSFER PICTURES FROM MY OLYMPUS CAMEDIA ULTRA ZOOM C2100 TO MY NEW PC, BECAUSE I LOST MY SOFTWARE CD.


You can always use a separate card reader instead of the camera for downloading pics. Then, you don't need any special software. typrice_19.jpg

Olympus camedia c-3040 zoom how to delete pic


Judging by your explanation, the photos are on your sd digital memory card rather than the internal memory.
Since you are unable to delete just those 15, it sounds like you might have accidentally enabled the "protect" function.

Get out your manual (or download a new one) and read about how to protect/unprotect photos, and also read about how to format your card in camera - something you should do on a VERY regular basis for the health of your memory card.

While you have the book out, read ALL of it - twice! You'll be amazed how much you'll learn.

More movie time with my camera


try the Olympus web link, http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_dig_cam_questions.asp?category=Digital%20Cameras&id=934 and put your question to them.
(I can't get more than 30 seconds for movies and just bought a 1 GB card, I see that that gives me more pics but no more movie time than 30 seconds. Am I wrong?)

Card not initialized


Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG
