My olympus digital 800 have a blank screen when im
I recently experienced a similar problem with my Stylus Digital 800 where I got a black screen everytime I took a photo. The shutter could have been stuck in the closed position. This problem developed five years after I purchased the camera. I replaced the lens assembly (p/n VJ 946700) with a new one from Olympus Parts and this solved the problem.
Have reloaded the Olympus master software on my Vista PC - but when I connect the camera the Master software doesn't find the camera.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program.
How do i clear the card
You have to use card FORMAT to remove all of the photos and other stuff that gets added to the memory card. First make sure you've downloaded all of your photos and saved them. Then go into Mode Menu then Card and Format.

I experienced a similar problem with my Stylus Digital 800 exactly five years after purchase. This problem was caused by the lens assembly and not the CCD sensor. The shutter seemed to have jammed in the closed position. The part number for the lens assembly is VJ 946700.
Olympus stylus 800 lens problem
Fair reasoning but I suspect incorrect.
The screen remaining black- do you mean that it shows no menu item either? or are you getting those but no image? clarify.
If you are getting nothing- is there a hint of 'shadow' images but not illuminated?
It nothing at all then this is an indication of a connector/ main board failure.
Lens not appearing could be the drive motor has stalled.
But the two items together could also mean something much easier to resolve- The battery[s] is not delivering enough power.
Clean the battery contacts. Make sure it is of the correct value as in the manual - if you have replaced it recently .
If that fails it may be new camera time as the likely cost of a repair will be high.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel
after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
the advise is useful.
My camera lens wont come out
Hi there its a problem of your lens. The lens guide pin is damaged or dislocate. Thats why the lens can not able to focus properly. Replace the guide pin. Thanks.
My camera stopped zooming and when I snap the
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but chances are the lens got bumped in the out position, breaking a small lens gear or other plastic piece. It's a common problem, and happens a lot. You can try to pull on the lens when it extends, or hold it and twist slightly when it retracts, hoping to get the gears back in line, but that's all you can try, short of service. The whole lens assembly is usually replaced as a unit, and while ebay might have one for about $25, you would have to disassemble the whole unit just to replace it. You might check with a camera repair shop for an estimate, but from what I've seen, you're probably better off getting a new one. Some 10.1 mp go for $69 on sale, that's hard to beat!

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

The lens cover will not open on my Olympus Stylus
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
