I have just taken shot some video footage with my OLYMPUS FE-320/Xbut when I play it back on my computer there is NO SOUND RECORDING just a "hissing/background" noise? Is it my camera or is it me?

To isolate the problem, you should try to play the video on the camera. If the sound is heard from the cameras speaker, you have to assume the film does have sound. So when you try to play it on the computer, and you don't hear a thing, a bad driver or a bad sound card or just a problem with the playback software could be the cause of this.

My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely...

There are many sides to the fault but it seems that you have a serious one. The camera needs to be opend to confirm the fault and so it needs experienced hands. The possible fault could be failure of the electronics, maybe the shuter drive, the lens drive or maybe the flash section. Assuming that your battery is good the fault can be related to a shorting or power related malfunctioning. Disconnection of one of the sectionmay be needed to confirm but an access to the camera electronics is a very sensitive job . so take help and hope the fault is economical. Good day

I hve the write protect problem on my fe 320 olympus. its not allowing me 2 tak pic neither allowing me 2 copy them..

It's most likely that your card is locked. Take out the card and on one side you should find a small slider with 2 symbols (an open and a closed pad lock). Move the slider to the open pad lock position and that should solve your problem. It's a feature on some (mainly SD) cards which lets you lock the card to avoid unintentional deletion of data. Hope that helps

How to remove ''write protect'' from olympus fe-320 camera??


To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

Says card cover open when turning on.makes a buzzing noise then shuts back off

you should have either dropped it down the floor or it should have been affected with water or solvents. the only way is you have to take it to the service centre to change the lens array.

Card Access lamp keeps blinking


It sounds like you have either intentionally or inadvertently set your camera to it's highest possible setting.
I believe this camera has a TIFF image capability, which takes beautiful shots , but each weigh in at a hefty 15mb or so, which takes the cameras processor a little more time (quite some time on my old Olympus Camedia 5000z) to process and ready itself for the next shot in memory, - whilst it will allow you to knock out a couple in a row, if you do so you are only compounding the issue by lengthening the queue in memory.

So, the easiest way to tell if you have set this is to just look how many shots you have available on the card, if this seems unusually low, then you have set the camera to TIFF mode or a very hi res JPEG. in which case you must press the settings button, the go left into the image size settings menu and change the image size back to the best setting for your cameras, which should be a mega pixel or so lower than it's maximum capability for the fastest and most capable daily use of the camera. between 2-4 mega pixels is usually fine for domestic and family snaps that are still very printable. save the hi settings for the broad landscapes and super close Macros, then you really see the cameras capabilities shine!:-)
Highest resolution is fantastic, but slow -as you have noticed - and best saved for the occasional macro on a tripod.

I hope this solves your problem. Otherwise you can try formatting the card, they do often gather batches of small undeleted 'thumbnails' on Olympus cameras.

Also if the card is over 2-3 years old, you could well be right in your assumption that it needs replacing, in which case you will be pleasantly surprised how cheap they have become for much larger capacity cards.

All the best and happy snapping!.
