Wont take pics, flashes orange and green light when i try. olympus D-520
Ok. So, I've had this happen several times before. I was once able to make it work anyway and it usually seemed to fix itself after so I figured there was no point in getting help. Now, however, the camera (Olympus Camedia D-520 zoom) won't let me turn on the screen display or even take pictures with the lens open.
When I turn on the screen so I can see what the picture will look like, the green and orange lights right next to the part you put your eye at turn on and the camera pretty much shuts off. This happens when I try to do anything with the lens open. I used to be able to take pictures without the screen on, but now the camera is useless except for loading stuff to the computer.
The frequency of this happening has led me to believe that this problem is common, yet it seems that nobody has ever posted the problem or a possible solution. And to top it all off I've gone and lost my manual. If somebody could please tell me what is going on or, more importantly, how to FIX it, please say something.

THE DOOR HAS A SAFETY SWITCH THAT SHUTS THE UNIT OFF WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED KEEPING YOU FROM GETTING "ZAPPED WITH RADIATION" ACTUALLY ITS JUST RADIO WAVES, ANYWAY THE JIGGLING OF THE HANDLE TO START IT IS WHATS HAPPENING THERE. IT COMING ON IS JUST A SHORT IN THE SWITCH THAT MAY BE FROM AN ALREADY SET TIME, OR ITS JUST MAKING CONTACT WHERE ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO. ANYWAY YOU NEED A NEW DOOR SWITCH.
several things could cause that: 1. hdmi cable is no good. 2. receiver and TV are not fully compatible. I noticed few times that philips tvs had problems with denon receivers. Some times you need o unplug hdmi cable and plug it in back to get sound. 3. firmware issue. depends on model of your receiver there could be a software upgrade to resolve the problem. 4. somebody (kids) accidentally pressed some buttons and reassigned video input for that video source (video select button on a remote control), etc. Resetting the receiver usually helps. 5 Receiver (hdmi board is no good) or TV is no good. so next time when it happens check video source, video input assign then try to swap hdmi cable and TV
Hi I have seen this intermittent problem before in Philips sets, and what's happened is that the Button interface to the microprocessor, or indeed the microprocessor has failed, often it is the timing crystal, or ceramic resonator that controls all the timing etc, and/or dry joints in that section, it usually costs around $150.00 to fix, however without actually examining the unit, it's impossible to actually tell. So, you need to take it in to an authorised service center and ask first and only for a "Quote" and go from there once appraised of the prospective costings.It has nothing to do with the remote at all, as related it is an internal failure. Contact a Philips head or local office and ask for a referral to an authorised service center.
Same problem: and this will be the 3rd time. This range is junk! (However, I do agree with some repairmen who've said it is the fancy electronic panels.) I have a whirlpool dishwasher that just stopped working due to it's electronic panel. I can hardly wait to see what happens with my new washer/dryer.
