Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Olympus X-560WP & when I turned it on, the screen appears with a P in the left corner, a red flash symbol in the right corner & it says on the bottom +1.0 1/30 F3.7. It isn't allowing me to use any of the buttons on the side or change any of the settings. I thought if I reset the camera it would fix the problem but it won't allow me to do that either. I'm on holidays at the moment & haven't seen any camera repair shops so I can't even take it there. Do you know what the problem is or how I can fix it?

    How do you access the little battery. Do you remove the front four screws? If so does it remain waterproof? Did you need to reseal? Thanks

My Olympus X-560WP will not connect to my computer


You may need to have the drivers for your camera downloaded to your computer so that the camera and computer can communicate. This usually is done automatically when you first make a connection. This can take a few minutes to go through.

IS THIS CAMERA WATERPROOF AND HO DO U TURN ON THE FLASLIGHT


No, the camera is not waterproof.


Touch the lightning bolt icon area until the flash icon appears on the left side of the display. This will activate the flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the flash symbol appears on the LCD screen. This forces the flash function.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the eyeball icon appears on the left. This activates the red-eye reduction mode.

To turn off the flash, touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the no-flash icon (lightning bolt inside a circle) appears on the left.

This is covered on pages 13-14 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://vivitar.com

Turn off flash


Hi,

With the camera ready to shoot in Auto mode - you will see a little lightening symbol in the top right hand corner of the screen. This indicates the flash is turned on.

On the left side of the circular dial at the back of the camera you will see a similar little lightening symbol indented into the dial. Simply press on this side of the dial to turn the flash on or off as you desire.

The symbol on the screen will go off when you push this to indicate flash is off and return if you press again to turn it on.

Thanks for using FixYa.

VHS won't work


Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

Auto flash not working right


This is actually a repair issue with the flash charging indicator switch. It needs to be replaced as it has failed. You can call Olympus Customer Service to discuss their repair policy and preocedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Flash problems


Hey emeffem,
What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps!

Olympus sp 350


There is a "quick" button located on the back of the camera just for flashes. It is the first button to the right of the power button and it looks like a crooked lightning bolt arrow that points down. If you are in any picture taking mode, push this button and it will toggle you through each flash option, auto, red eye (eyeball symbol), flash (same symbol as the button, this mode will make the flash work everytime you take a picture), red eye and flash, and no flash (careful, in this mode you have to allow for the camera to focus, the lens will stay open a long time in a dark atmosphere -- if you don't hold the camera still you will get a blurry picture).
