Question about Olympus Stylus Cameras

1 Answer

My 1030 SW beeps 4 times and wont stay on. The camera takes a blurry picture of whatever you are pointing it at and powers off. It only works in the review mode.

The camera stayed off for about 6 months. It worked perfectly before. When we tried to turn on it had this problem. Thanks :-)

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.

Need to have date printed out on my photos with my olympus stylus 1030 sw camera


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every photo in its EXIF metadata. If you want this printed with the photo, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your photos. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date/time on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW display not working after being in water


I just had a similar problem. I am not sure how it was fixed, but it works again - at least for now.

I had the camera on and was taking pictures when the screen went dark. Same as you describe, it takes pictures, flash works, LED, works, everything but the display. I plugged it into my computer with the USB adapter to see if I can salvage what is on the card and the diplay lights up. Tried several variations, but when the cable is connected to the computer (didn't have to be connected to the computer) the screen worked. Unplug, no display. I spun the settings button a couple of times. I accidentally took a couple of short videos and pictures that I deleted. I unplugged the camera and powered down again (tried that before). Power up and the screen is fine.

Again I have no idea what fixed it or why the display worked with the cable plugged in. It might have been related to the videos or some setting that I had slipped into (thought the display button never worked or changed anything).

Hopefully something in there helps or someone can explain what I did.

Blurry out come


Hi George

It sounds like a lens issue... Try:
1. cleaning lens (carefully!)
2. Could be condensation I suppose. Unlikely but make sure its fully warmed up and dry.
3. It could be a lens element misaligned possibly due to impact damage. Needs pro repair then.
4. Just a wild thought - it's not been left permanantly in some close-up mode giving a very out of focus effect?

Hope this helps,
Regards
Martin

The Same problem


I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.

Olympus sp 350


There is a "quick" button located on the back of the camera just for flashes. It is the first button to the right of the power button and it looks like a crooked lightning bolt arrow that points down. If you are in any picture taking mode, push this button and it will toggle you through each flash option, auto, red eye (eyeball symbol), flash (same symbol as the button, this mode will make the flash work everytime you take a picture), red eye and flash, and no flash (careful, in this mode you have to allow for the camera to focus, the lens will stay open a long time in a dark atmosphere -- if you don't hold the camera still you will get a blurry picture).
