Question about Olympus Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Olympus Stylus 1030SW. The LCD monitor is pixelated. The pictures that are taken with the camera are crisp and perfect. When reviewed on the camera, they are very pixelated. When searching through menus, there are lines going across the screen. Was wondering if there is a way to reset the monitor or if this is a repair that needs to be done by the manufacture

You can try to reset the camera to factory defaults to see if this improves the monitor. You go to Menu and then left arrow to Reset and press Ok. Up arrow to Yes and Press ok this will put the camera back in factory default settings. If the screen still shows as pixelated, you might try to do a function of the camera called Pixel Mapping. Go to Menu and then right arrow to Setup then down arrow to Pixel Mapping - right arrow to Start and then the camera will try to repair the CCD processing chip inside the camera. If after this completes if the screen is still pixelated, then you want to send it to an Olympus service center for repair.

My Olympus x-42 doesn't take a picture. View from monitor is perfect but when I take a picture, all there is is a white screen


Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.

My Olympus 1030sw is 8 months old and I took it


Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution


It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

Black spot on pictures, and lcd viewing


Hey cj17,
Since this spot is both on your lcd and your pictures the lcd is most likely not to blame. This spot is probably caused either by dirt on the lens or the sensor, or it could be caused by a dead pixels on the sensor. You can try cleaning the lens, and if this doesn't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician.

Sincerely,
Allan

How to view


There are two ways to view the photos, in the camera...

1) if the camera is OFF and the lens barrier is closed, just press the Play (>) button once to view the photos.
2) If the camera is in SHOOTING mode with the lens barrier open, press the Quick View button twice in rapid succession.

When you are done reviewing the pictures, press the Quick View button once to turn the monitor off, OR, to return to the shooting mode, press the shutter button halfway.

Then use the arrow pads to go forward and backward.

Hope this helps.
