    I have had the camera for about 4 years with very good results and no problems but recently, for no obvious reason, the green power light does not go out when the slider is closed, it remains on and blinks. The battery loses charge rapidly even with the slider closed. When switched on the camera appears to work normally. I have checked the Olympus manual trouble-shooting section but find no mention of such symptoms.

    Same problem - camera works great but if there's a battery in it, the power light is always on. When the lens barrier is closed and monitor is off, the green light just flashes away until the battery is dead. I called Olympus and after consulting with his peers and supervisor and all the reference manuals he had, the customer service rep could not help me. They did send me a new battery :) but I put it in and it still flashes. Did anyone ever get a fix on this, or do I just need to take the battery out of the @#* camera every time I'm not using it? It's a GREAT camera otherwise...

I am having the same exact problem--started Christmas day. The camera seems to lose all user set options as well with each power cycle. For instance I had it set to not beep or make noises when taking pictures, now the default factory settings always make the shutter click sound and such when taking pictures. I am wondering if there is perhaps an internal battery in this camera that is now dead that would remember those settings to cover your regular battery when changing it or if it were drained?

Hi Keith, The link below is the user manual for the Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera, On page 56 it says
• In Green Mode, you cannot change the information displayed on the LCD monitor by pressing the 4/W button.
• You cannot use the [A Rec. Mode] menu or Capture Mode Palette in Green Mode. If you try to display the [A Rec. Mode] menu or Capture Mode Palette, - (key lock icon) appears.
• If you switched to Q mode from Green Mode, you cannot display the [H Setting] menu by pressing the 3 button. If you try to display the [H Setting] menu, - (key lock icon) appears.
• When the camera is turned off in the Green Mode, it turns on in the Green Mode next time the power switch is pressed.
THIS IS YOUR CAMERAS USER MANUAL.....CHEERS..

Getting out of green mode

While in the green auto mode, press cursor-down on the four-way controller. When the capture mode palette appears, use the cursor keys to select the desired mode and then press the OK button.
Full details are in the "Letting the Camera Choose the Optimal Settings" section of the manual (page 62 in my copy).
If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.

How do i remove the green mode from my pentax e40

If you press the green button again it cancels green mode.

If you want to select a different mode press the down arrow on the four way controller when you are in capture mode.
That has icons for different modes like landscape or program mode.
Move to the icon you want by using the 4 way controller then press ok.

The button with a triangle on it that is above the 4 way controller switches between playback and capture modes.

My Canon Powershot SD1000 acts like it shuts off when I try to upload pics to my computer. When I plug the usb into the computer and the camera into the usb the Camera will still work perfectly fine...

Consider 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 cataloging program.

Screen flickers green on recording

It sounds more like a loose connection on the wires or flex cables that connects the screen to the main circuit board inside the camera.

Pop-Up flash - Rebel xti

You will need to send the camera for servicing. There's a lever mechanism inside the flash unit which is responsible for popping up the flash. Since it is a mechanical device, it is sometimes prone to failure. I suggest not to put manual pressure to force the flash to come out, as it may cause permanent damage. Instead, send the camera for service.

Camera will not power up

Hi, I had the same problem. One fine day I tried to switch ON the camera but it will never turn ON. Batteries OK and condition of switch OK too. Being a technical person, with the help of some colleagues, I decided to open the camera, assuming that sending it for repair would cost too much. We found a blown smd capacitor marked 4710d. We replaced it with a 47uF capacitor and also a blown link just adjacent to the capacitor. The link resoldered and the camera is working fine now. I must say that even though very complicated, the way this camera is assembled makes it easier to handle.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
