My Camera screen shows lines flickering, how can I fix this?

Could be part of the ribbon cable that feeds from the lcd to the main board has either dislodged or got corroded and is causing a bad connection.if you are brave enough to check always remove the battery first as this will prevent damage to circuitry.if the cable seems fine then it is more likely to be a sensor issue.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all

Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

My camera will not work

Hello. Begin by turning off the camera and removing the battery. Leave the battery out for two full minutes and then reinsert it. Turn the camera on and it may be fine. If not, and you can now see the screen, go into the menu and find reset. Reset the camera which will take you to the original factory settings and you should be fine. IF neither of these steps solves the problem you should take your camera in for a repair. Opening it up to work on the internal mechanisms will void the warranty. Regards, Joe

Moisture on the lens

If moisture is in the lens, it is inside the camera.
Best to remove the battery or batteries and let it dry out in a warm area for a few days. This may not remove the moisture like taking the camera case off. This may be a job you may not want to tackle.
Corrosion will eventually cause problems within the camera.
It may be that the moisture inside may already have damaged some parts or components or caused a short.

WHEN I TURN MY OLYMPUS ON IT GOES RIGHT TO "ZOOM ERROR" THEN SHUT OFF. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

When your Olympus camera goes straight to "Zoom Error" and then turns off, it is likely that there is an issue with the camera's lens mechanism. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem:
  1. Turn off the camera and remove the battery and memory card. Then, wait for a few minutes before re-inserting them and turning the camera back on.
  2. Gently move the lens back and forth with your fingers to see if it can be moved and if it is stuck.
  3. Use a can of compressed air to blow dust and debris out of the lens mechanism.
  4. Check the lens for any physical damage such as cracks or dents.
  5. Try using the camera without the zoom function to see if it still turns off.
  6. If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may be best to contact Olympus customer support for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and fix the issue or tell you if a repair is needed.
It's important to keep in mind that the Olympus camera is an older model camera, which makes it harder to find replacement parts and professional repair services. If the camera is still under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired or replaced by the manufacturer.
