Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera wants you to format when you turn it on.

We have had this camera since December 04 and it always worked fine. We haven't used it much. Lately, when you turn it on, it will automatically go to format instead of letting you take photos. This is even after we have charged the battery. We even bought a new battery. Sometimes, you will be at an event, and taking photos and all the sudden you turn it back on and it wants you to format the card. This would lose all the photos already taken. on a 252 mg card even. Anyone else had this problem. My daughter's wedding is coming up and I need a camera that is reliable.

On some cards, you will need to clean the contacts of the card to get it to see the card. you can clean with a pencil eraser lightly over the contacts and wipe clean or alcohol cleaner (let air dry for one hour before inserting card back into camera)

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac....


Using the internal memory locks some cameras into that mode. To get your card to work again, do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, re-insert the card and it should work.

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 does not recognise my memory card


1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

I have a kodak easyshare m1063 THAT WILL NOT TURN ON!!!


This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside thecamera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth(heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, orsandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and thenreplace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if itdoesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Go to camera Menu and select Initialize, OK.
Camera will turn on itself, if problem still exist, tap camera gently and turn On again to solve lens access problem.
Memory stick error can be solved by formatting it through Format menu in camera. Use another memory stick in camera to make sure that camera is OK.

Formatting
This function lets you format a card. Formatting prepares cards to receive
data. Before using non-Olympus cards or cards which have been formatted
on a PC, you must format them with this camera.
All data stored on the card, including protected pictures, is erased
when the card is formatted. When formatting a used card, confirm
there are no pictures that you still want to keep on the card.

Page 173 of your advanced user manual explains how to format the memory card and clear all data from it.

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.
