Question about Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom Digital Camera

No Power

As I was taking a picture the screen flashed white and then the camera lost all power. A battery change did not fix. Does anyone have a clue as to what happened and if it is fixable or even worth fixing?

Re: No Power

Thanks for the reply. Dead batteries were the first thing I checked. I have rechargeable's and before I went outside to take pictues I put fully charged ones in. I too have been reading everything I can on this camera and one review said it was very fragile. I don't remember dropping it but it may have been bumped. I also read another post where a "fuse" had gone bad in a camera of another brand and the way the screen flashed I'm leaning toward this being the problem. Either way I have the feeling that it's not worth the price of a fix. So now I need to pay my son back and seeing that I'm addidicted to the digital photography I need to invest in another camera! lol

Re: No Power

The camera has high battery consumption like the following: "My one beef is the battery life. I have since read a couple of reviews that claim the 'low battery' indicator comes on too soon. If you're clicking like crazy and using the LCD screen, it will drop quite quickly. I tend to set up my shot with the viewfinder, use the screen to double check the framing then turn it off and shoot."

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting...


I have exactly the same problem. I am writing an email to Olympus for further advice. I beleive there is some replacement policy as this seems to be a manufacturer problem.

Wont take a picture unless I turn off the flash


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Wont take pictures with flash


The problem is in the battery holder of the CR1220 battery.

-Take out the CR1220 battery (the little round one).

-When you replace it, put a bit of aluminum foil against the back, between the battery and the plastic holder, to make it a nice tight fit. One layer won't do it, but don't put in half the roll.

-Put it back in. Done

Using a fresh battery & clean it all with alcohol = good idea as well. Worked for me.

Camera not taking pictures


Sounds like you might have a lens error developing. Look for error messages on the screen. A clue is abnormal performance by the lens in tracking and zooming in and out.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Crappy pictures


Describe wierd - this word means nothing. White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it. or Reduce power of the flash. The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
