Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flipped Screen I just got my camera a few months ago. Everything was fine and running perfectly. Yesterday as I was taking some pictures, my monitor flipped and reversed not only the images, but the information displayed in the view as well. Has this happened to anyone else? I've reset my camera, recharged the batteries and reformatted the memory cards. Help.

Re: Flipped Screen

I sent my camera in to Olympus for repairs. Luckily or not, my camera is practically new so it was still covered under the warranty. Let me preface by saying that I had called the service line and told the tech about my problem and he had never heard of this peculiar predicament, so hopefully this won't occur to other owners of the 5050Zoom. A note on the invoice listed that they changed the LCD monitor and "chem" (not legible enough to figure out). So I don't know why this happened nor how to avoid it. But I must say, when I received my camera, I was so shocked at the condition of the package; one side of the box looked like an accordian. They really don't invest enough in packaging for me to "highly" recommend them, but they did fix it and I guess that's all that matters.

My sony dsc-w1 got very wet, caught in a rainstorm and did not have the case. I have left it dry out for 4 days and it turns on, lcd works, can read memory stick and display old pictures on the lcd. But...


Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

Ours is doing the same thing except we aren't in warranty. Had the camera 6 months and Sanyo wants $85 to fix it. I'll never buy Sanyo again. Take it back while you still can.

White Screen


I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
