Olympus Stylus 1000 Digital Camera - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Your camera may be ok. Every and each camera has different reactions to a battery condition depending on the design of the circuit. Your battery may work ok on the other camera but this camera needs more juice (assuming the camera is working ok). If the camera demanding more power from the battery, try the rechargable batteries. Hope this helps. -James

Try this, set the dial to P, then open the battery door and then press the Menu button and OK button together for about 5 seconds. If you see something in the screen like Olympus? Then press the Menu and OK button together again for another 5 seconds, this is a hard reset and hope it fixes your problem?

Most brands of cameras deliver a CD with the camera, containing software, needed to backup, transfer and work with the pictures you shot, to a computer.
Most of the time there is software is for both, Windows and MAC.
Before you connect the camera to any computer, you should install the software. The disk also has the drivers for the old operating systems.
If you lost the CD, or just don't know where it is right now, you can go to the site of your camera brand and try to download the software you need. For that look under support.
If your camera is old, and the brand does not exist anymore, try a freeware picture transfer / editing software pack. Like Gimp or Adobe Photoshop elements.
Just connecting a camera to a computer causes two things. The camera shuts down, and the computer won't recognise the camera. So nothing works.
If you can't get software form your brand, you always can install other generic software like Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if that is not possible you could install an external memory card reader and download the pictures via de memory card reader.

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 such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

go out and purchase you some LCD tv screen cleaner and use that. It is safe to use on the camera screen, see if that fixes the problem.

The type (model) of battery in use will determine the solution;

For most commercially available, consumer products, using a grounded (rubber/non-conductive handled screwdriver) is often enough to pry it loose. If extremely stuck, feeding a small length of twine or string between the battery and the device and pulling gently should be able to pry it loose.

For other rechargeable batteries (cell phones, MP3 players, etc.), you may have to find a way to insert a tool or string into the space for the battery.

Press cursor-right (marked with a lightning bolt) to bring up the flash options. Select the lighting bolt in a circle with a slash through it to turn off the flash.

The system control board has detected a problem with the lens and is causing a shutdown to protect vital parts in the camera. The only option is a professional to assess the item.

Olympus would be a possible source.

Have you tried using Google to find out what the error code actually means ? Very often, the first step in defining and correcting an error is to find out what has caused it.

I would recommend Sony for a best film or picture.

This does not appear to be a camera

Is this an SD card or SDHC card ? If so, have you inadvertently set the write-protect switch to 'ON' ?

To read it on your computer, you will need to get a USB card reader that will read your particular card, then connect this to your computer, which should treat the card as an extra drive.

You say the card has been in use for several years - it may just be corrupted or at the end of its useful life - I should consider replacing it soon.
