Question about Olympus Cameras

1 Answer

How hard is it to replace the screen on an olympus c7000 camera? How do you do it? I am A+ certified to work on computers but I have never worked on a camera. It works but the screen is broke. I have a broke camera I can get the screen from, but, I don't want to break my good one cause it takes great pictures it just has a bad screen.Thanks

A camera is more or less a small computer, you should be fine. Just take your time taking it apart, they are a lot less complicated then computers.

When you put in an USB cable, the camera starts charging the battery, or when some signals come from the computer it knows it needs to send pictures you the computer and wait till it gets the order to do so.
Only for the more professional camera's there are programs so you also can use the camera in combination with a computer. Professionals buy these software and use it in a studio with the camera switched to live view.
When you want to use the camera, never leave something in the USB connector and make sure it is free from debris.
Any connection in the USB connector, can "fake" a computer or charger connection, and the camera waits till it gets a commend from that port. It won't listen to any command on any button.
When you are sure the connector is free and clean, remove the battery again and reinsert it.
If the error comes back, return the camera (or visit a Olympus certified repair centre) because it must be a warranty issue.

I can't find a driver for my camera.... I tried the Olympus site, driver guru etc... they all want to install a program that searches and then ask for $$ Help please?


I can't believe it is the driver. For XP there are many drivers around and can be installed by the user (Admin) whenever he wants. On windows 7 and up only certified drivers can be installed.
But did you try to uninstall the whole photo suite and reinstall it, so the driver will be installed too. Because it should be on the CD what came with the camera.
The software should be available in the Olympus site to. Just for the people who lost their CD. (looks like 90% of the users don't keep the CD after installing the software.)

Olympus FE-115 will not upload to pc


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Olympus fe 4000 - when plugged into the computer doesnt work


Is the computer or the camera telling you the battery is bad? If it's the computer, you might have some bad pins on the camera, or your usb cable may have a problem with it. If the camera is reporting this on it's screen, not sure what the problem is there. I would instead, just transfer the pictures to the computer via a card reader through the USB port. Check your printer- many printers these days have memory card slots on them, and you can transfer pics to the computer through them.

My screen is completely white with blue lines.


You might have bumped the LCD screen, they break really easily. You can replace it yourself by ordering one on Ebay for about $25.00. A repair shop quoted me $125, but I would buy a new one in that case. It's not hard to change one, but you have to be careful, and make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. If you google the problem mentioning the make, model no., and add "changing LCD screen" you will find a lot of articles on it. Good luck, and maybe get a hard case for your next camera.

Card format gone, camera works fine with different card. can card be reformatted? camera wont show any screen but blue "card not formatted"


Try formatting the card in a computer card reader and then format it again in the camera. If that won't work, the card needs to be replaced.

LCD screens can be repaired by Olympus repair centers, prob free if under warranty quite expensive if not under warranty. Or you can purchase LCD screens on ebay between $45 and $65. Not hard to replace.
