Question about Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Controls problem -factory reset?

My c-740 is experiencing a problem with the "direction up" button on the back arrow pad . In every menu function using the up button shuts the camera down. Is there a factory reset function that might get it working again? PS looks like a great forum I am downloading the Olympus manual hoping for help but at 56K this is slow & if like the written manual probably very limited in info

You need to get a copy of CD that comes with your camera. It has the factory settings you are lookin for. If you go to Olympus site im sure they would be glad to help. (NOTE) The paperback manual does (NOT) include factory settings.

Can i reset the settings to the original factory settings?


In order to reset the camera settings to its default values you need to do the following:

-Press the MENU button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Settings menu (its icon looks like a wrench and hammer)
-Use the up or down arrow keys to scroll to the choice that says "Reset ALL..."
-Press the "Func./Set" button to confirm your choice.

This will reset the camera to its factory default settings.

How to use the Zoom


I assume you mean when pressing the W or T buttons the zoom feature does not work. Try to reset the camera to the factory default settings and this should enable the zoom feature to work again. To do this go to Ok button and then to Mode Menu - then to Setup tab and then right arrow to Reset. hit the right arrow and you will see Reset Yes or No. Highlight Yes and press Ok. Camera should be in factory settings and zoom option will function.

Hello,

that information should be covered in the user manual, but the model numer you provided doesn't come up with any cameras, does it have a simpler name or if you can post me any and all text you can find from the camera. I should be able to help you.
Thanks,

The functions available from the arrow pad, which are Self-Timer (arrow left key), Exposure Compensation for adjusting brightness (arrow up key), Macro and Super Macro Modes for close up photos (arrow right key) will all be reset using the RESET arrow pad button. Also, the quality/resolution will be set back to the default of HQ, but settings such as the language, the date and time, sleep time settings are not changed by using the reset button. These settings need to be manually selected through the menus in order to reset or change them.
