Question about Olympus D-460 Zoom Digital Camera
When I slide the lens barrier to turn on the camera the lens stays in, the yellow light by the viewfinder blinks once, then the green lights flashes about 20 times. The control panel shows a flashing card error and a flashing recording mode SHQ. The flash mode stays on steady and a zero in the bottom right corner stays on. The camera makes no noise. The 64 Meg card had 36 pics on it and I copied them to my computer then deleted them. The last time the memory card was bad my computer couldn't read it either. I have tried many batteries including rechargable and alkaline. I don't have a power supply to try. The camera has not been dropped or gotten wet. Thank you, Dave Sandage
Resetting is only useable from within the menu system. There's no actual hard reset. All it does is put the menu system back to factory standard. Forget Alkaline batteries, use Nimh type only and make sure they're fully charged. Quite often reformatting the card in a computer can muck things up. It's best to reformat in the camera. If you have a friend with an olympus ask him to format your card for you and see if the problem clears. Also make sure the gold contacts on the card are clean. Often a quick rub with a pencil eraser will do the job but make sure you remove any rubber pieces after. Personally I use just a piece of ordinary printing paper. If you are still stuck try inserting and ejecting the memory card as fast as possible about a dozen times, you could have dirt on the internal contacts. Making sure the camera is off of course.
